The Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board (JKSSB) recently announced the Final Selection List/Allocation of Cadres for the posts earmarked for Physically Challenged Candidates (Sub-category of Deaf & Hard of Hearing). These posts were advertised through Notification No. 01 of 2020 dated 26.06.2020. This marks a crucial step in the recruitment process for 8575 Class-IV vacancies in various departments under direct recruitment.
The General Administration Department, in its communication No. GAD/Mtg/RB-IV/50/2020 dated 22.06.2020, forwarded the requisition to fill up the 8575 Class-IV posts as per the Jammu and Kashmir Appointment to Class IV (Special Recruitment) Rules, 2020. These rules were notified vide S.O. 184 of 2020 dated 04.06.2020. The JKSSB acted promptly, advertising the Class-IV posts on 26.06.2020 and conducting the OMR based Objective Type Written Examination in three batches on 27th February, 28th February, and 1st March 2021.
However, during the recruitment process, some Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) belonging to the subcategory of Deaf & Hard of Hearing raised concerns. They approached the Hon’ble Central Administrative Tribunal, Srinagar through O.A No. 1764/2021 titled Peer Mohammad Arif Vs Social Welfare & Ors, pointing out that the Board had not applied Horizontal Reservation to the PwD candidates.
The issue of Horizontal Reservation initially arose due to the lack of clarity from the General Administration Department, as the post of Orderly/Class-IV was mentioned at two different entries in the Government Order No. 59 of 2021 dated 15.04.2021. However, to address this, the Board decided to reserve 320 posts for PwDs in Phase-I, pending further clarification.
