The Jammu and Kashmir High Court has withdrawn a notification that sought applications from across the country for recruitment of non-gazetted posts.
“It is hereby notified for information of all the concerned that the advertisement Notice No. 09/2019 dated 26.12.2019, whereby applications were invited for different posts in Non-Gazetted category in the High Court of Jammu and Kashmir stands withdrawn with immediate effect,” a notification issued by the High Court’s registrar, Sanjay Dhar read.
It may be recalled that the High Court had on December 26 invited applications from candidates from across the country. This was the first time that hiring was to take place from across the country, post the abrogation of Article 370.
The posts advertised included that of stenographers, drivers and typists. The J&K Reservation Rules 2005 will be applicable in the reserved category. It stated that the available vacancies would be in favour of the permanent residents.
There were 33 posts advertised and 17 are in the open merit category, which means anyone from outside J&K can apply and be selected. These candidates had been requested to send their applications to the Registrar General of the High Court of Jammu.
It may be recalled that the regional BJP units had submitted a memorandum to the top leadership of the party to make some concessions for the residents of Kashmir. It was suggested that 15 to 20 years of stay within J&K must be made the minimum requirement for an Indian citizen to be deemed eligible for the status of a permanent resident. (Agencies)
