KASHMIR 06 DEC (MK):-
The JKPSC is again under the clout of allegations as the recent declaration of KAS MAINS 2016 result has ousted many deserving and meritorious aspirants. The aggrieved aspirants organised a mass protest at JU and JKPSC office, Jammu against the recently declared result of KAS 2016 mains examination by JKPSC. Many KAS aspirants have alleged that despite performing well in all their papers they are not in the list of Aspirants shortlisted for Personality Interviews. Aspirants have also alleged that there is a high chance of mass error in assesment of the answer scripts of various optional and GS papers. An aspirant while interacting with the media mentioned that It’s almost unbelievable that an aspirant who is four times interview appeared was not able to qualify KAS 2016 mains examination and that too in a situation where he/she not only performed well but the advertised posts were four times as compared to previous examination. You will be surprised that the no. of such aspirants is in hundreds. The KAS 2016 mains examination was conducted from 2nd of July to 8th August, 2018 after a delay of One year. The result of KAS 2016 mains examination was declared on 4th of December where JKPSC via a notification dated 4.12.2018 shortlisted 963 aspirants out of the total 6427 candidates who appeared in the examination. It is quite pertinent to mention that the entire KAS 2016 examination process was challenged in Honble HC at every stage, citing discrepancies and irregularities in the entire recruitment process. Already, in one of the Judgements of J&K HC, DB, dated 13.03.2018 the entire KAS Mains Examination 2016 was quashed and in one the statement the Honb’le Justice Underscored the Section 133 of the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir and made it clear that it is the duty of the Commission to conduct examinations for appointments to the services of the State. “Inherent in the function of the Commission, as enumerated in Section 133, is the duty to hold fair and transparent examinations and make all endeavors to maintain purity of such examinations”, court said. A delegation of aggrieved KAS aspirants also met The Chairmnan and The Controller examination, JKPSC and forwarded a representation in this regard. With a denial to all the allegations, JKPSC with utmost adamancy disregarded all the allegations being made by the aggrieved aspirants. All the aggrieved aspirants have demanded that JKPSC must take strict cognizance of the matter and the entire result must be scrutinized. They have also appealed to the Honb’le Governor and PMO to intervene in this regard and an high level inquiry should be initiated into the entire recruitment process of KAS 2016 MAINS Examination. In case if all the demands of the deserving and meritorious aspirants are not met then they are even ready to Knock the doors of SC. It’s total irony that in a State where the corruption and unemployment rate is at its peak, the deserving and meritorious candidates are forced to sit at logger heads while their career is destroyed by the irregularities in the System.
