The Lt Governor administration Jammu and Kashmir government Thursday constituted a committee to examine job policy unveiled by previous PDP-BJP government, commonly known as SRO- 202.
The General Administration Department in an order constituted a four-member committee to examine various issues related to the Jammu and Kashmir Special Recruitment Rules, 2015.
The panel would be headed by Chief Secretary BVR Subramanyam. The Financial commissioner (Finance), Administrative secretary GAD and Law Secretary would be part of the panel.
It would examine implications of the SRO-202 on the job structure in Government as well as financial implications.
The committee has been constituted amid growing demand from employtees that SRO- 202 be withdrawn.
The new job policy, also known as SRO-202, has come under criticism from different quarters since its unveiling in 2015.
Under the recruitment policy, a new recruit has to undergo five years’ probation period before being entitled to pay applicable to the post against which he/she is appointed.
