The Jammu and Kashmir Service Selection Board has earned Rs 77 crore from unemployed youth in the name of examination fee to fill the vacant posts in various departments in the last five years. But even after five years have passed, these examinations have not been conducted. Senior Congress leader Sumit Magotra has made this allegation in a press conference.
He said that the above information has been obtained through RTI by an RTI activist. For non-gazetted jobs, the fee of Rs 350 per form for non-gazetted jobs and Rs 1,000 per form for gazetted posts was kept by JKSSB.
JKSSB collected crores of rupees in 5 years in the name of examination fee from the job applicants. This amount was taken for the selection test to be done on the vacant posts in various government departments. JKSSB had to select about 300 examinations in which one lakh youth applied, but the examinations did not take place.
The RTI disclosure revealed that the administrative department canceled the advertisement for all these posts and hence the examination did not take place. Sumit Magotra said that it is a matter of great sadness that educated unemployed youth of Jammu and Kashmir had filled the forms in the hope of getting jobs. But by playing with these youths, work was done to cheat their money.
He said that if jobs were not to be given, examinations were not to be taken, then why this money was taken. They demand that its truth should be brought before the public. Along with this, he appealed to the youth of Jammu and Kashmir that all the youth should reach their voice to the Jammu and Kashmir administration against this fraud through social media platforms.
The Congress leader demanded from the Lieutenant Governor that all the educated youth who had filed applications and deposited fees in these five years should be given a chance for examinations by taking out advertisements again and such a law should be made in which youth in future. Can’t be a bad joke.
