Srinagar, Oct 20: The Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board (JKSSB) on Saturday cautioned the job aspirants against the activities of some unscrupulous elements.
“It has been reported by some candidates that these unscrupulous elements including some of the aspirants themselves are deceitfully flaunting their proximity with the board authorities or being in touch with them and are dishing out misleading information regarding recruitments and policy matters of the Board telephonically and through Social Media,” said Suhail Malik, PRO JKSSB, said in a statement.
In some cases, which have come to the notice of the board, even fake contact details of the Board authorities have been created by these unscrupulous elements in their cellphones and are creating spoofing conversations to give an impression to the gullible candidates that they are regularly in touch with the Board authorities, he said.
He said even screenshot of “a fake conversation” had been generated and posted on social media.
He said the prospective candidates shall not fall prey to the designs of “such unscrupulous elements” trying to “dupe the unsuspecting aspirants/candidates with misinformation, rumors or any false promises of securing them job either through influence or by use of unfair or unethical means”.
He said the board has collected some cellphone numbers and handed over the same to the law enforcing agencies for further investigation to ascertain if these were being used by impersonators.
Malik said there was “a transparent and institutionalized” mechanism in place in JKSSB for recruitments.
“The candidates should immediately get in touch with the board offices if any such unscrupulous person approaches them in any matter pertaining to the Board,” he said.
The board, he said, “tries its best” to attend selection matters in a “meticulous manner, so that the selections do not run into litigations”.
