JKPSC Faces Month-Long Chairman Vacancy, Exams Keep Getting Postponed

Srinagar, 18 Dec: The Jammu and Kashmir Public Service Commission (JKPSC) finds itself in disarray as it has been without a chairman for a month following the departure of former Chairman Satish Chandra on November 19, 2023.

Satish Chandra, appointed as Chairman in June 2022, was mandated to hold the position until reaching the age of 62. However, his retirement on November 19 has disrupted official proceedings, affecting ongoing recruitment processes and leading to the repeated postponement of exams.

The absence of a chairman has hindered the commission’s ability to move forward with the recruitment process, prompting concerns among candidates awaiting examinations.

All exams scheduled after November 20 have been postponed, as indicated by a recent notification from the JKPSC on December 15. The aspirants express frustration, stating that the sudden exam cancellations result in financial losses and mental distress.

A group of selected candidates for Assistant Professor positions in subjects like Botany, Psychology, English, and Political Science in the Higher Education Department (HED) highlight the prolonged halt in the recruitment process due to the former chairman’s superannuation.

Despite efforts by candidates to seek information and express their concerns, the files remain stuck with the JKPSC. The affected aspirants appeal to Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha and Chief Secretary Atal Dulloo to intervene personally and expedite the appointment of a new chairman.

Responding to the situation, Advisor to Lieutenant Governor Rajiv Rai Bhatnagar acknowledges the issue and assures that it will be examined to ensure a prompt appointment of the commission’s chairman.

The uncertainty surrounding the leadership of the JKPSC raises questions about the commission’s ability to fulfill its crucial role in the recruitment and examination processes, leaving candidates in limbo.
