In Jammu and Kashmir most parents’ career advice for their children is get into ‘Sarkari Naukri’. One cannot deny that a sarkari naukri does come with some great perks that private companies don’t offer. And if you are someone who likes to have a personal life after work, there’s no reason why a government job shouldn’t be your priority.

One such prestigious sarkari naukri in Jammu and Kashmir is to be a KAS officer and since 2014 J&K Public Service Commission (PSC) has not completed any competitive civil service exam for KAS leaving the aspirants in worry.

Here are the reasons behind delay in KAS Result & Exam:

For Result: After issuing public notification in 2014, PSC delayed preliminary exams by one year which was conducted in 2015. The preliminary results were declared in the same year but many candidates challenged it in the court of law complaining “discrepancies” in it. The issue remained in the high court for about a year as the PSC didn’t follow it properly. Finally, it was disposed of in November 2016 and PSC conducted KAS (Mains) exams in February 2017. But results are still awaited despite the passage of over five months.

For Exam: JKPSC vide advertisement notification no PSC/Exam/2016/52 dated June 18, 2016 and 36,681 appeared in preliminary competitive examination 2016 which was held on March 19, 2017. The result of the preliminary examination was declared on April 23, 2017 in which 6,925 candidates stand declared to have been qualified for the mains examination 2016 by JKPSC with the last cut point as 270.477 marks out of aggregate of 450 marks. The preliminary results were declared in the same year but many candidates challenged it in the court of law complaining “discrepancies” in it. The new experts contradicted with the old experts and as such new cut off merit constituted came out to be 277.275 points. Thus 429 numbers of already qualified candidates were ousted by PSC in revised result. Now, candidates who were ousted from the selection list approach the court of law that has now stayed the list.

We hope justice will be delivered soon.
