Srinagar- The Jammu and Kashmir government has terminated the services of Masrat Yousuf as media assistant to Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC).
According to an Order, a copy of which lies with Kashmir Observer reads that Yousuf was engaged on consolidated wages as Media Assistant in SMC for a period of 06 months in the year 2011 subject to the condition that “engagement shall be purely on temporary basis and terminable at any time”
The SMC then extended the services of Yousuf for six months in 2012 on similar terms and conditions.
However, SMC said it has posted Idrees Aqail, a regular government employee, as public relation officer to deal with media relations.
“In view of the above, Srinagar Municipal Corporation no longer requires the services of Miss. Masrat Yousuf. Hence, no further extension of services is granted with effect from September 9, 2022,” the order reads.
