PM’s package for KP migrants hits roadblock
HC directs Govt to maintain status quo on selection list
SYED BASHARAT
"
SRINAGAR, Aug 4: The High Court has directed for status quo to be maintained on selection list of Kashmiri migrants who had appeared for 3000 posts created under first phase of Prime Minister’ Package for Return and Rehabilitation of Kashmiri Migrants.

Justice Mansoor Ahmad Mir while hearing a petition filed by Ajay Raina and others, has issued notice to the government to file objections to the petition seeking quashment of re-advertisement of remaining posts of the first phase of selection process.

“…subject to objections of other side, status quo shall be maintained till next ate of hearing,” reads Justice Mir’s order.

The petitioners had applied and were interviewed for clear vacancies advertised in 2010 under Prime Minister’s Package for Return and Rehabilitation of Kashmiri Migrants. In the first phase of this package, 3000 posts were created by the government in 2009 thereby framing rules for recruitment against these posts.

On January 1, 2010, an advertisement was issued by the government for unemployed Kashmiri migrant youth. The petitioner was among the other migrant youth who had applied for these posts. After evaluating qualification of the applicants and their interview, the Service Selection Board framed the merit list of all the candidates. After reserving some posts for candidates belonging to different categories, the selection list was submitted to the government.

However, the government de-reserved the category posts as no migrant belong to SC or ST category. Besides, out of 2120 figuring in the merit list, 762 selected candidates did not join their services. The de-reserved and the posts falling vacant due to non-joining were clubbed and re-advertised by the government.

Earlier, the petitioner along with the other candidates figuring in first merit list had approached the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and Minister for Revenue who according to the petitioner had assured them that the government will not re-advertise these remaining posts and instead the candidates figuring in merit list pending with recruitment board shall get adjusted on these posts as per their merit.

A second advertisement notice was issued by the government on July 19, 2012 for the remaining vacant posts of the first phase of selection process. “This new advertisement is bound to mar our careers and will deprive us from right of consideration from pending merit list with SSB,” Raina states in his petition.

Aggrieved by the new advertisement, the petitioner says that the new advertisement has been issued in violation of a communication issued by the state government through its under secretary revenue to chairman SSB by virtue of which the Board was directed to furnish selection list against the de-reserved posts out of the merit list already prepared by the Board.

Now through his petition, Raina has prayed for quashment of the new advertisement number 1 of 2012. Second, the petitioners have sought adjustment on the same analogy as has been done in favour of other unemployed migrants adjusted under government order number REV/MR/147 of 2009 dated 28-10-2009.
