Srinagar: The Administrative Council (AC) today reconsidered  its earlier decision and restored the provision of waiting list for government recruitments.

The AC met today under the chairmanship of Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha. 

Rajeev Rai Bhatnagar, advisor to the LG; Atal Dulloo, chief secretary; Mandeep Kumar Bandhari, principal secretary to LG attended the meeting.

 The AC decided to withdraw the amendments made out in the J&K Civil Services Decentralization and Recruitment Rules, 2010 earlier in terms of S.O 496 of 2023, J&K, Appointment of Class-IV (Special Recruitment) Rules, 2020 vide S.O 497 of 2023, J&K Combined Competitive Examination Rules, 2018 vide S.O 498 of 2023 and also in the Business Regulations of JKPSC/JKSSB, and other rules/regulations in any other department/ service ab-initio. 

It was also decided to grant one time exemption to recruiting agencies to draw up wait list within six months, for those select lists, which have been issued since earlier decision. However this shall be subject to the condition that such wait list(s) are drawn within validity period of the select list and resultant vacancies on account of non-joining of selected candidates have not been  re-advertised.

 The  decision shall help in timely filing up of vacancies, with additional benefits such as avoidance of delays in re-referral of vacancies, reduction of time consumed in subsequent selections, and allow candidates to secure employment before attainment of upper-age limit.
