JKSSB refutes news regarding Delay in Publication of Shortlist of Persons
with Disabilities (PwDs) of Class IV
The Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board (JKSSB) has refuted the
news circulated in a section of media, which attempts to create a false
impression that the shortlist of Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) category has
been delayed by the JKSSB, and that the shortlist of all other categories has been
notified. The JKSSB, in a statement has said it is a fact that the Provisional
Shortlist of all categories, except Persons with Disabilities (PWD) category have
been notified in June, 2021 and their document verification commenced soon
thereafter and continues to be underway currently. The above fact in itself
demonstrates that there might have been a valid reason for not issuing the
Provisional Shortlist in respect of Person with Disabilities (PWDs) category.
In the aforesaid context, it is clarified that there was a discrepancy in the
Government Order No. 49- SW of 2021 dated:15.04.2021 in respect of identical
Class IV posts pertaining to different departments, in so far as eligibility of
different sub categories of PWDs is concerned, due to which the shortlist could
not be finalized. Accordingly, the JKSSB took up the matter with the General
Administration Department with the request to ask the Social Welfare
Department to clarify the matter, enabling the JKSSB to proceed ahead. The
requisite clarification from the Social Welfare Department is still awaited, as a
consequence where of, the said Provisional Shortlist in respect of PWDs category
could not be notified. The publication of the Provisional Shortlist of PWD
category has not been delayed due to inaction of the JKSSB, rather factors
beyond its control are responsible for the delay.
The JKSSB in recent times, despite risks and difficulties posed by the COVID19 pandemic has set examples in efficient, transparent and timely disposal of
issues/matters pertaining to recruitment and any attempt to attribute delay,
directly or otherwise, to the JKSSB in the publication of Provisional Shortlist
relating to PWD category candidates is motivated and bereft of any truth. The
JKSSB will notify the Provisional Shortlist of PWDs category as and when the
requisite clarification is received from the concerned quarters.
