Jammu, March 30: The state government has taken up the matter of filling of posts reserved for settlement of SRO-43 (militancy-related) cases to adjust the candidates with no militancy affected people.
It has directed the administrative wings of various departments to adhere to the guidelines and ensure that the posts are reserved for settlement of SRO-43 (militancy-related) cases only.
The Sadr-e-Riyasat Ordinance (SRO)-43 of 1994 (militancy related) provides for immediate financial support to the family or next of those killed in militancy-related incidents in the form of government jobs or relief in form of cash.
“On the basis of inputs of the Administrative Secretaries regarding availability of Class IV posts in different departments, two government orders were issued in 2006 and 2009. In the orders, Class IV posts were kept at the disposal of the Deputy Commissioners for settlement of SRO-43 (militancy- related) cases except for the cases which require relaxation as provided in SRO-43,” said an order issued by the General Administration Department on Monday evening.
The order said some of the departments had utilised the posts for adjustment of candidates outside the purview of SRO-43.
“Such acts not only causes delay in settlement of these cases, but also leads to mishandling of the scheme,” it said.
