The minister told that there was some ambiguity in recent advertisements for jobs in the union territory which has now been resolved.
“I have spoken to the LG and the chief secretary about this ambiguity and they have said a clarification would be issued soon,” said Singh, the MP from Jammu and Kashmir’s Udhampur Lok Sabha constituency.
He said existing rules allow for three per cent reservation for people living in areas along the IB and ALoC. As many as 8,575 vacancies for class-IV jobs have been advertised by the Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board last month. In April, it had sought applications to fill 1,889 posts of Accounts Assistant (panchayat).
