  • 1

Jammu: The officers in feeding service for KAS (An amalgam of 18 Services) have demanded the government to notify the available slots prior to making any inductions into KAS Cadre besides restoring the slots to address their grievance.

The amalgam, which met here on Wednesday, discussed in detail the issue of slots diverted earlier to other source (direct recruits) and resolved to struggle for its restoration till the grievances are addressed by the government. President of the amalgam, Ghulam Rasool Mir said that removing disparity in slots and balancing the slots, distributed among promotees and direct recruits as per their share, is one of the issues of the amalgam.

“We are optimistic about the justice we demand, as the Chief Secretary has assured us to restore the slots diverted earlier to other source (direct recruits),” he said.

He said some officers on the helm of affairs are delaying the issue either to hide their mistakes or favour a particular service. “Governor administration should honour the Supreme Court rulings by way of implementing the Order No. 107 of 2002 in letter and spirit,” Mir said.
