Shaheen seeks roll back on reduction in age bar for Civil Services

Srinagar, January 10 (KNS): JD(U) Party president G.M. Shaheen  today strongly reacted to the enforcement of SRO-130 that has unjustifiably reduced the age bar for Civil Services aspirants by five years.

In a statement issued to news agency-kashmir news service(KNS), Shaheen  termed the new rules arbitrary in nature and demanded immediate roll back of the SRO-130. “
Shaheen  said the implementation of this SRO will not only impede the participation of those KAS aspirants who have crossed the age limit of 32 but also add to the rising levels of frustration among unemployed youth

Shaheen said the youth in J&K have already been facing the tide of unemployment and now this move will make the situation further depressing. “There is no reason to reduce the age limit of Civil Services aspirants to 32 when the upper age limit in rest of the country even exceeds 38 and 40

Shaheen appeal to the Government of India and the Lt. Governor of J&K to address the genuine grievances of civil services aspirants of J&K by repealing the SRO-130. We must realize that J&K youth want to excel in all the fields especially in the civil services provided they are given a level playing field and encouragement , Shaheen added (KNS).
