Srinagar, May 23 : Welcoming the accelerating requirement process in government departments, Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party (JKAP) on Saturday said Permanent Resident Certificate (PCRs) and migrant cards should be accepted as domicile certificates for these appointments.
JKAP president Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari in a statement here welcomed the accelerated recruitment process by virtue of which around 10,000 government jobs would be advertised for permanent residents of J&K in coming days. However, Bukhari demanded that the government should not insist the job aspirants to produce Domicile Certificates during the selection process and instead accept their PRC as a bonafide residential proof in view of constant engagement of revenue officials who are working as the front line department to deal with the COVID-19 crisis.
He observed that lacs of unemployed youth of J&K were craving for an opportunity to apply for the government jobs but the condition of domiciliary status put forth by the government has created huge disappointment among the job aspiring youth. “I welcome and congratulate the Lieutenant Governor G C Murmu and the entire Accelerated Recruitment Committee for exploring the possibilities and coming up with around 10000 posts in a record time for recruitment of qualified unemployed youth of J&K.
However, the terms and conditions of the recruitment exercise need to be re-considered leniently in light of the crippling situation created by the COVID-19 for the job aspirants of J&K,” the JKAP President remarked. MORE (UNI)
