Srinagar, Mar 21: Much to the surprise of many aspirants, Jammu and Kashmir Service Selection Board (JKSSB) has entertained Science graduates over Mass Communication degree holders for the post of junior photographer.

The JKSSB on February 01, 2019 advertised number of posts including the post of junior photographer for home department.

 

But to the surprise of mass communication candidates, the JKSSB has only asked, those candidates to apply who possess bachelor’s degree in science and diploma in photography from a recognized institute.

“There are number of mass communication candidates who have been struggling to get the job. It is quite unfortunate that JKSSB has not considered us for the post, “said a mass communication candidate, Mudasir Ahmad.

Another candidate, Irshad Ahmad said that authorities at JKSSB should bring necessary changes in the eligibility criteria.

Irshad said it is not fair to deprive them from applying for the post.“I fail to understand, why we have not been considered for the job. The post requires technical qualification, B.Sc is an academic qualification, it has nothing to do with Photography. A mass communication guy has vast know how of the things, “he said.

When contacted, Public Relations Office (PRO), JKSSB, Ashwani Hansa said that the post has advertised in accordance with the indent received from the home department.
