SRO-202 rules, new recruitment policy anti-youth, must go: NC
Srinagar : Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Friday demanded the scrapping of exploitative recruitment policy SRO 202 in J&K saying that the unfair public policy goes against the spirit of natural justice and sense of equality.
Unemployed youth of our state are subjected to double jeopardy due to unavailability of viable private sector and absence of a sound job policy, party’s spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar said while expressing concern over the plight of youth who have to undergo immense anxiety due to the long five years of probation period besides subsisting on unequal pay for the same posts which their seniors held prior to June 30, 2015.
“The characteristics of SRO-202 job policy go against the sense of social justice, economic and social equality. Rules of the said job policy deprives the appointees of the otherwise entitlements of annual increments, dearness allowances, HRA, and CCA till the completion of first five years of service. Given the fact that the appointees do not do any less amount of work compared to their predecessors who were recruited under general recruitment rules for the same posts before the implementation of SR0-202, it is exploitative and must go,” he said.
He further said that the new domicile policy would not only prejudicially affect the employment rights of local unemployed youth but result in upswing in the unemployment graph in Jammu and Kashmir.
