Govt abolishes waiting list provision for recruitment
Post by RK News on Thursday, September 28, 2023
Srinagar, Sept 26: In a significant move, the Jammu & Kashmir government has eliminated the provision of preparing waiting lists for recruitment in government services.
This decision was announced through three separate notifications issued by the General Administration Department (GAD), aimed at repealing rules that mandated recruiting agencies such as the Public Service Commission and the Services Selection Board to maintain a wait list alongside the select list.
Traditionally, alongside the select list, recruiting agencies would create a wait list to accommodate candidates for any "drop out" vacancies that may arise during the recruitment process.
However, these notifications signify the government's decision to abolish rule 7 of the Jammu & Kashmir Appointment to Class IVth (Special Recruitment) Rules-2020, sub-rule (7) of rule 14 of The Jammu & Kashmir Civil Services Decentralisation and Recruitment Rules, 2020, and the proviso first to sub-rule (1) of rule 16 of the Jammu & Kashmir Combined Competitive Examination Rules, 2018.
This change in policy reflects a new approach to recruitment in various government departments in Jammu & Kashmir, with potential implications for future hiring processes.
