12 years on: Class IV posts await final selection, aspirants fume
Final list will come out in two weeks: DC
ANANTNAG: Oct 6: In 2006 state government had advertised class IV posts in various departments for district Anantnag. The then deputy commissioner was made the chairman of the recruiting committee and was supposed to finalise the process in a year.

For 56 posts, out of which seven posts had been reserved for schedule tribe category a total of 18760 aspirants had applied. However, nearly 12 years down the line the posts are yet to be filled. Though in March 2016 the recruiting committee came up with a tentative list where it shortlisted 49 candidates on the basis of their merit. Out of 49 only seven candidates, official sources said, turned up to submit the documents. Earlier this year another shortlist of 44 candidates was made public out of whom only 22 submitted the requisite documents.

Despite coming up with two tentative lists in the last two years the rest of the recruiting body headed by deputy commissioner has failed to come up with the final list leaving the candidates figuring in the shortlist fuming.

A group of candidates whose names figure in tentative lists issued by the recruiting board since last year told questioned the fast track recruitment policy of the successive regimes.

"On one hand authorities are making claims of fast track recruitment while on the other hand the selection lists are pending for over a decade. In last twelve years many aspirants who had applied for these posts way back in 2006 either found jobs somewhere else or crossed the age limit," the aggrieved candidates told Kashmir Times.

One of the shortlisted candidates said that the officers supposed to finalise the selection are causing unnecessary delay in the process.

"We have been making rounds of the offices concerned. The officials sometimes assure us that the recruitment will be finalised in a week’s time and sometimes they blame each other for delay. Most of us were doing one or the other business for livelihood but after the tentative lists were made public by the recruiting board, we virtually wounded up our businesses. We are now confused whether we should wait or resume our businesses," the candidate said.

The candidates appealed to the chief minister to look into the matter and ensure that the officials who have made the file containing the final selection list is processed for final selection.

Deputy commissioner Anantnag Mohammad Yunus Malik admitted that the list was pending since long but added that the same will be finalised within a couple of weeks.

"Since the list was awaiting culmination I am working to finalise same. In next fifteen days the final list will surely come out," DC said.
