SRINAGAR: In a significant development, the Jammu & Kashmir government has done away with the provision of preparing waiting lists for recruitment to government services while the rules mandating recruiting agencies to draw a waiting list for filling dropout vacancies for each job test were repealed on Tuesday.
The General Administration Department (GAD) issued three separate notifications to repeal the rules mandating recruiting agencies like the Public Service Commission, and Services Selection Board to prepare a wait list, in addition to select list.
In addition to the select list, a wait list was prepared by recruiting agencies. The purpose of preparation for the said wait list was to consider the candidates of the waitlist against “drop out” vacancies.
