‘State government must challenge the order or bring an ordinance’
Stung by the decision of the Uttarakhand Subordinate Services Selection Commission to hold recruitment process of group D posts following order of Uttarakhand High Court (HC) on removing the compulsion of registration in local employment offices, the association of the unemployed youths has demanded the state government to bring out an ordinance to protect the interests of the unemployed of the state.
The president of Uttarakhand Unemployed Association, Bobby Panwar said that the order of HC is not rational. He, however, added that the association respects the court. “But we want the government to ensure that the interests of the unemployed youths of the state are protected,” he said. Panwar further said that the association has no problem with the Court’s order on non- compulsion of registration in employment offices but at the same time, it wants that for filling group ‘D’ posts, the domicile should be given precedence over others. He warned that the unemployed would be forced to hit the path of agitation if no provision to protect their interests is made by the government in the matters of recruitment.
The state Congress has also expressed its concern over the ramification of the order and charged the state government with failure to protect the interests of the local youths.
The Uttarakhand HC in a recent decision had ordered that there should be no compulsion of registration in the employment offices for recruitment of group D posts. However, the ramification of the order on job prospects of the local youths was not grasped till the Uttarakhand Subordinate Service Commission withheld its recruitment advertisement for group D posts and sought directive from Uttarakhand government in the wake of the HC order. Mention worthy, the domiciled candidates can alone register themselves in the employment offices of the state and following the removal of the compulsion of registration, the candidates residing in other states have become eligible for recruitment in group D posts.

In a communiqué, the CM said that the state government is committed to protecting the interests of the youth of Uttarakhand and providing employment to them is its top priority. Read more posts…
