Candidates smell rat

Srinagar: The ‘anarchical’ approach of Service Selection Board (SSB) here has kept the fate of scores of candidates in limbo who qualified the written test conducted earlier by the board but were not allowed to enter inside the interview room.

A delegation of the aggrieved candidates told KNS that they applied for the posts of the draftsman in the R&B department, advertised by the SSB under the notification number 9 of January 2013, dated June 12, 2013 wherein applications were asked for the 17 number of posts. Candidates stated that according to the issued notification, the required qualification for the posts was two years experience in the field along with the three years of diploma in the subject.  The candidates maintained further that the applications for the posts in hundreds and later a written test was conducted for the screening of the candidates. 

Later when interview was conducted, the civil diploma holders were not allowed to sit in the interview despite the fact that around 40 candidates of such course had qualified for the same and interview slips were also issued in their favor.

The candidates maintained that at the time of the interview the SSB officials told that due to their qualifications, they are not eligible for the interview. The candidates said that when they qualified the written test and later when even the interview slips were also issued to them, how come they have become ineligible for posts.

More than 40 candidates accused SSB over ‘anarchical’ approach, alleging the Board is fiddling with their career. They appealed the government to look into the issue at an earliest.  (KNS)
