Shoaib Bashir, a psychology student and an emerging talent from Kashmir committed suicide few days back as he couldn’t pay his college fees. In a suicide letter written by him, he informed that his Father, inspite being a Government Teacher didn’t receive his salary since the lockdown started.

Shaken by the mishap, Administration released salary of 600 Government employees. However, this act hasn’t helped the youth of Jammu and Kashmir much.

Jammu and Kashmir Service Selection Board has collected a total revenue of 77 crore rupees since 2016 to year 2020. As per the facts presented by JKSSB in response to a filed RTI, it collected a fees of Rs. 6 crores in the year 2017, Rs. 27 crores in the year 2018, Rs. 12 crores in 2019 and Rs. 21 crore in the year 2020.

This revenue was collected by the Department through job application forms filled by the aspiring candidates for Government jobs. For your information, JKSSB charges Rs. 350 for a single form for a non gazetted post where as UPSC charges only Rs. 100.

Due to the covid-19 virus, many businesses got shut, many companies terminated it’s employees and many monthly wage workers got a full stop on their income. In a recent study, unemployment rate in October 2020 that was 8.6% has inclined to 12.1% in May 2021.

With a protesting youth in the Jammu and Kashmir UT and lot of unemployed people struggling for work and money for daily needs, don’t you think the Government should extend it’s hands for support? Isn’t it the Administration’s time to help the public? Share your opinions in the comment box.
