J&K HC opens doors for all-India candidatesDecember 30, 2019 16:11
In a first step of its kind, opening of state employment in the Union Territories of J&K and Ladakh for candidates from across the country, the Jammu and Kashmir High Court has invited applications from eligible candidates from all over India to fill 33 vacancies with it. This is the first such move after the nullification of Article 370.
The 33 vacant posts of non-gazetted officials include those of a senior scale stenographer, junior scale stenographer, steno typist, compositor, electrician and driver.
The advertisement to fill the vacancies was issued by the J&K High Court's Registrar General Sanjay Dhar on December 26 with the last date for submission of applications being January 31, 2020.
Following nullification of the Article 370 on August 5, there had been demands from various quarters, especially in the Jammu region and Union Territory of Ladakh, carved out of the erstwhile state of J&K after its bifurcation into two UTs, for a domicile certificate or some legal restrictions on the purchase of land by outsiders as well as their appointments in government jobs.
"The application forms shall be received by the concerned principal district judges of the UTs of J&K and Ladakh within whose jurisdiction the applicant resides against the proper receipts duly stamped. "The applicants who do not belong to the UTs of J&K and Ladakh shall submit their application to the Registrar General, J&K High Court, Jammu," the advertisement read.
