Enforcement of SRO-103 one more slap on aspirations of common people of JK: Qayoom Wani
Srinagar 10 january (KNS): Jammu and Kashmir Civil Society Forum (JKCSF)demands rollback of SRO 103 that reduces the chances of careers for  educated youth of J and K as the SRO implies to reduce the age from 37 years to 32 years for the prestigious KAS exam.
 In a statement issued to news agency-kashmir news service(KNS), from jammu JKCSF Chairman Abdul Qayoom Wani termed the enforcement of SRO-103 as “sheer injustice” to the educated youth of Jammu and Kashmir and a slap on the aspiration of common people as it reduces the qualifying age for appearing in the KAS examination to 32 years from the existing 37. 
Wani, lambasted the J&K government’s decision to reduce the age of eligibility for civil service aspirants by five years terming the step an onslaught on the career opportunities of Kashmiri youth.He  said the situation  had already scaled down  the career opportunities of the youth in J&K given the  prevailing scenario and to help the aspirants who had not been able to pursue their careers due to circumstances, the previous governments had increased the age of eligibility. Because  academic scenario as well as job scenario   and services all have suffered badly in  Kashmir in the past few years.In the past , we have seen how the participation of Kashmiris has shrunk in J&K administration. This move now  will worsen it further,” he said. “The implementation of SRO-103 has put the future of our unemployed youth in lurch.”He said the age bar for civil services in other states of the country was even upto 40 years. Wani said SRO-103 would badly affect  the participation of qualified  youth of Jammu and Kashmir in civil services examinations particularly the KAS.
JKCSF demands the rollback of this SRO 103 in the larger interest of the people of Jammu and Kashmir to safeguard the career opportunities of its youth.(KNS)
