Srinagar, January 31: Socio political activist Inam Un Nabi has raised the issue of anti youth policy with Governor Satyapal Malik and urged him to revoke SRO 202.
Inam stated that the new Job policy as framed by ruling Government of Jammu & Kashmir for the educated youth of J&K in the form of SRO 202 on 30.06.2015, is not only violating minimum wages act (SRO 460,dated 26 Oct 2017) but also the Supreme Court Judgement of equal pay for equal work and is said to be discriminatory and anti youth policy of Government.
Inam observed :”The educated, skilled and well qualified candidates when selected for a Government job after passing through written tests and interviews conducted by recruiting agencies of JK, competing thousands of applied candidates at state, divisional and district levels are paid a meagre salary of 7000 to 8000 per month after appointment working equally as co employees who were appointed before 30.06.2015 and paid full salary.”
Inam observed that J&K being employment deficient, most of the youth get employed in thirties and are left with less service to serve departments which ranges between 20 to 28 years. The Class IV employees working in the department are getting higher than the newly appointed employee with skilled technical hands (Non-Gazetted) and counted at top in working class employees which results in inferiority complex and causes less devotion towards performing duties with zeal and zest.
He urged that now, the need of hour is to break the silence over the issue and abrogate the SRO 202 of new job policy as was done by previous Government at an earleist to safeguard the future of educated youth of J&K.
Inam hoped revocation of same would be carried as priority by Governor.
