The results of J&K Police Constable (armed/executive) were declared by the J&K Police Department on the 25th of June whose exam was conducted earlier this year on the 20th of March. The Selection list regarding the same has been discreetly mentioned on the website.
The cut-off for the Open Merit in the written exam was 65 while that of the various categories was 28. However, after looking into the matter, it was revealed that no preference was given to the people appearing with Sports Quota, where actually the Police officials talk about promoting sports and games for all the young aspirants.
Based on these grounds, the candidates appearing with the Sports background are angry over their being disregarded completely. Since the prime job of a policeman includes being fit, people with sports background are someone the department should be looking for hiring. Preference to physical attributes like height and physique along with higher qualification were overlooked.
Numerous of the candidates who have scored more than 50% are left out due to the high open merit cut off. Many of these aspirants have established great achievements in sports and are NCC members too.
Agitated youth have urged the J&K Government as well as the Police Department to look into the matter and promote sports and games in the State by this means and look into recruiting these deserving candidates.
