News kashmir Analysis 

A free and fair recruitment process in the Jobs is the need of the hour for one and all. In Jammu and Kashmir unemployment has been a plague eating the society especially our youth.

The hope on Government jobs is thus much,and burn there day and night to get Government jobs. The fraud and corrupt process in the recruitment of Government jobs has been making life of our youth hard and killing their dreams. The recruitment agencies engaged are often in the news for all the wrong reasons. Currently,  APTECH engaged by the premier Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board JKSSB has caused much furore,  which needs to be looked for the better future of our youth.

On the other hand of the spectrum the protesting youth have hit the road.

Scores of Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board (JKSSB) job aspirants gathered here in Press Enclave on Wednesday, 8 March, 2023,  to protest against the purported grant of contract to APTECH Ltd. for conduct of various exams.

The protesters, as reported by GNS, demanded that the LG administration must investigate as to why paper leaks and scams only occur in Kashmir.

“All blacklisted companies should be banned in Jammu and Kashmir, until action is taken against these blacklisted companies, no student will sit for any competitive exams,” the protestors said.

The recent move of the Jammu and Kashmir government to again consider Aptech Ltd to conduct various exams including the Finance Account Assistant exam stirred the protestors.

Even in Jammu the anger hit the streets. Police resorted to cane charge and detained a large number of job aspirants in Jammu after they tried to stage a massive protest.

The protesters had assembled outside Dogra Chowk in the heart of the city and tried to take out a march but police swung into action and restored to cane-charge and detained several youths, the officials said. Police said protestors tried to take out a march in violation of prohibitory orders.

It is the need of the hour to revisit the role of the Aptech Company which is assigned to hold examinations for various posts of JKSSB in separate government departments.

Even the polity of Jammu and Kashmir is now speaking against APTECH.

Former Jammu and Kashmir Minister Sajad Lone asked JKSSB on APTECH issue that you can’t thrust a black listed company on our future:

LOne said “I have received a lot of emails and messages about APTECH which has been blacklisted in other states .

One hopes this issue is resolved soon as per wishes of youth.
