Terming it as exploitation of unemployed youth, the aspirants of Jammu and Kashmir Service Selection Board (JKSSB) posts are aghast over the increase in examination charges.
“They are exploiting unemployed youth by charging huge amount of money as examination,” Aijaz Rather, an aspirant from Bandipora said.
A candidate is charged Rs 400/- per post which is four times more than the charges applied by SSC.
The candidates claim that for each post, they have to pay separate fee and then same exam is conducted for all the Common Graduate level posts.
SSB has received a serious backlash for conducting exams in two sessions on single day. Some candidates had exam centers for two sessions in Jammu and Srinagar.
Last week JKSSB issued a notice for conducting of various exams on 23rd of June 2016 in two sessions—9:30am to 12 pm and 2:30pm to 5pm. Some of these exams have been pending as long back as 2011.
There are many applicants who are scheduled to appear in both sessions and have the centers for two sessions at different locations.
The candidates who say that it will be very inconvenient for them to rush from one center to another, which can be many miles apart, in less than two hours, demand that the board should one session on a given day so that they can conveniently appear in all the exams.
