SRINAGAR: The Services Selection Board (SSB) on Friday approved selection lists for 394 posts and 270 candidates were cleared for recommendation to various departments for appointment.
“The selection lists were approved at the 141st meeting of SSB held here on Thursday under Zubair Ahmad, Chairman, J&K Services Selection Board,” an official statement stated.
According to SSB spokesman, as many as 124 posts requiring technical qualifications and experience remained unfilled because of non-availability of eligible candidates.
The Board also decided to reconstitute the Sub-Committee setup in 140th Board meeting to scrutinize the cases of withheld recommendations, necessitated due to transfer of some Members. On the recommendations of the Sub-Committee constituted in the last meeting, 43 withheld cases have already been cleared for being forwarded to the indenting departments.
In a significant decision, the Board agreed to a four stage SoP to be put in place, after getting it approved by the Government, for effecting cancellations in respect of candidates, who after figuring in the select lists/waitlists, do not furnish the necessary deficient documents. “The streamlining of the cancellation issue will not only pave way for the candidates in the waitlists to make it into the selection lists but will also help the candidates next in order of merit to make it to the waitlists,” the spokesman said adding the decision shall also cater to the requirements of the indenting departments, who keep on requesting the Board for forwarding candidates next in order of merit, after the select list candidates and those in waitlists fail to join.
The Board has also designated Malik Suhail, Under Secretary, J&K Services Selection Board, to be the Public Relations Officer of the J&K Services Selection Board in addition to his own duties.
