Srinagar: Despite the passage of over one year the Service Selection Recruitment Board (SSRB) has failed to complete the selection process of the teachers in the school education department.
A group of candidates who have been provisionally selected for various teachers post on Wednesday accused the SSRB- the recruiting agency, of resorting to inordinate delay to issue the final selection list of the candidates.
They said the teacher recruitment comes under fast-track recruitment process as announced by the government on basis of which the whole selection process was supposed to get completed within three to four months.
“But more than a year has passed since the recruitment notification was issued by the SSRB and the final selection list is still awaited,” the agitated candidates said.
The selected candidates said authorities in SSRB conducted document verification of the all the candidates in August but were delaying the issuance of final selection list.
“There is no interview in this selection so the process should have been completed by this time,” the candidates said.
The 2154 posts of teachers- 1296 general line, 214 Urdu teachers and 644 for science and Mathematics were advertised by the SSB in December last year.
“We appeal the Governor of J&K state for his personal intervention into the matter so that he may direct the SSRB to expedite the process,” the candidates said.
The candidates said the provisional selection list of candidates for the post of Science and Math subject was issued on June 26, 2018 followed by the provisional selection list of candidates, who were selected as General Line teachers, on August 4.
“The candidates were called for document verification on August 27 last year but the SSB is delaying the completion of process leaving aspirants distressed,” the candidates said.
As already reported in media, more than dozen petitions were filed in the High Court against the provisional selection list of SSRB following which Board was asked to consider the demands of the aggrieved candidates to withhold the result.
More than 200 representations were also submitted by the candidates to consider their grievance against the provisional selection list.
Chairman SSRB, Zubair Ahmad Ganai meanwhile said the selection list of teachers was under process and will be issued during this month.
“The process is in its final stage and candidates should remain patient,” he said.
