The Ladakh administration has issued this notification under SO No. 16. It has been clarified that during the service selection, the formality of a resident of Ladakh can be completed only who fulfills the criteria prescribed for a resident of Ladakh. Earlier, after the abrogation of Article 370, arrangements were made to give government jobs to the local people only in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
Employment was also an issue in the demand of the Sixth Schedule
In Ladakh, leaders of various parties were agitating on one platform to secure the rights of Ladakhis on jobs and land. The Ladakhi leaders’ unit has held talks with the Center several times regarding the demand for inclusion of Ladakh in the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution. Election boycott was also announced on the same demand before the Hill Development Council elections, which was withdrawn on the assurance of the Centre.
After the election, the demand for giving privileges to Ladakhis again gained momentum. However, most of the leaders of Ladakh are still adamant on the demand for the Sixth Schedule. The decision to reserve government jobs for Ladakhis has brought a sigh of relief, especially to the youth.
