Srinagar, May 21: The government of Jammu and Kashmir has notified that from June 01 onwards, verification rolls on first appointment to any position in the government shall be processed digitally through a specially designed web portal.
Official sources said the previous practice of newly selected officials to various government positions submitting their verification rolls manually shall come to an end.
They said that the new system is very much like the passport application system as the newly selected successful candidates shall be asked to fill in the verification related information online and submit it to the appointing authority.
“After ensuring that the eligibility conditions pertaining to educational qualifications, age, reservation etc have been met and are backed by genuine certificates, shall forward the V-rolls to the CID for field enquiries and check of criminal records to ascertain the character conduct and antecedents of the selected candidates through its field functionaries which too shall take place via the digital platform,” they said.
They added that the web portal has been designed by the IT department of University of Kashmir in record time and at a very competitive rate.
“By switching over from the manual to the digital, it is expected that employment verification would become speedier, time bound and transparent,” it added.kns
