Srinagar: The forest officers who have been appointed in district cadre through Jammu Kashmir Services Selection Recruitment Board (JKSSRB) have appealed the Governor NN Vohra to release their salaries pending since a year.
“We have been appointed in district cadre Srinagar as forest officers. In this connection, we joined the department on February 28, 2014 and in the meantime we completed all the requisite formalities which authorize our services,” the officers said.
They added they have approached the concerned authorities in this regard; however, no action has been taken so far. “We are suffering a lot as most of the candidates are married and onus lies on our shoulders to meet the needs of our family,” they said.
The officers have appealed the Governor NN Vohra to intervene into the matter and settle the case on its merits. “We hope that the governor will redress our grievances at the earliest,” they said.
