Srinagar, July 16: Government on Friday asked all the recruiting agencies authorities to bring the selection processes to their logical conclusion within the fixed timelines.
“Attention of recruiting agencies and indenting departments/appointing authorities is invited towards the Circular No. 38-JK(GAD) of 2020 dated 24.12.2020, wherein instructions were issued for ensuring timely processing of the Selection/Waiting lists as per the timelines prescribed in the Jammu and Kashmir Civil Services (Decentralization & Recruitment) Rules, 2010, to avoid delay and seeking unwarranted relaxation in rules,” reads a circular issued by the government here.
Rule 14 (5) & (7) of the Jammu and Kashmir Civil Services(Decentralization & Recruitment) Rules, 2010, read with SRO 533 of 2018 dated 29.11.2018, prescribe the validity of period of select list/wait list for a period of one year from the date the select list is sent to the requisitioning authority.
The rules also prescribe that the concerned Selection Committees of the Board shall also draw up a waiting list of 50% of the total number of posts advertised, which shall extend to 100% where the number of vacancies is 10 (ten) or less.
“The Selection Committees shall forward the waiting list, through the Board, to the requisitioning authority for consideration against dropout vacancies. The waiting list shall remain in force for a period of one year fiom the date the original selection list is sent to the requisitioning authority… ”
However, the circular noted that despite fixed timelines notified in the extant rules and various instructions issued from time to time for concluding the selection process and operating the Selection/Waiting list, it has been observed that either the recruiting agencies do not forward the waiting list along-with the selection list thereby violating the statutory provisions or the appointing authorities consume considerable time in operating upon there commendations out of the select or wait list which often results in expiry in their period of validity.
