Flawed notification renders professionals ‘ineligible’ for recruitment
Srinagar: In a bizarre move, the authorities in Health and Medical Education Department have advertised flawed recruitment notice for the appointment of library assistants in the new government medical colleges.
The recruitment has pocketed criticism from different quarters as it has sidelined the professionals while making less qualified youth eligible for the posts.
As per the job notification, the candidates having Matric or 10+2 qualifications are eligible for the post while as the candidates who have done graduation and masters in Library science have been rendered ineligible for the posts.
“It is sheer injustice with the professionals who have done bachelors and masters in the subject while as 12th pass candidates are given preference for the post,” said Owais, one of the aspirants.
The candidates said they should have been given preference for the post over the youth who have minimum qualification.
“The government should rethink over it and modify the eligibility criteria. It will help us to qualify the exams with less competition,” Owais said.
The candidates having done masters and bachelors in Library science said they are denied job opportunity in school education department as well.
“We are professionals in the subject but our space has got shrunk due to flawed policies of the successive regimes,” the candidates said. The termed the move as “unfortunate” wherein undergraduate candidates are hired in place of professionals.
“In online submission of application they have kept only 10th and 12th pass qualification which means our graduation and masters in the library science won’t be considered,” the candidates said.
Commissioner Secretary Health and Medical Education department, AttulDullo was not available for his comments on the issue.
“Sir is busy in meeting. Will convey your message to him,” said an assistant of Dallu.
