Jammu, September 10: Although most of the applicants from Jammu are still fuming over the addition of Urdu in the Naib Tehsildar test, Jammu and Kashmir Revenue Department seems to be in no mood for changing the exam pattern and has decided to carry on with the decision to include a descriptive test in Urdu Language with a massive weightage of 30 marks in the exam that is likely to be held in November.
As reported by a local daily, SA Raina, Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir Service Selection Board (JKSSB) said that the rules for recruitment are made by Revenue Department while JKSSB is responsible only for the execution of the exam. Same was conveyed by Asgar Hussain, Additional Secretary of General Administrative Department (GAD) who also said that Revenue Department takes the decision and forwards the same to GAD.
Although, Dheeraj Gupta, who got additional charge of Secretary Revenue department days back assured that something would be done about the change in syllabus, there has been no official notice on any change in the syllabus.
The Revenue Minister, Sunil Kumar Sharma didn’t pick up his phone despite repeated calls.
