Domicile Rules Issued 

On 1st April 2020, Home Ministry of India issued the New Domicile Law, which defines, Who can be the domicile of J&K. There is One clause in the New Law, which did not go well with the Job seekers of J&K. 

It says, " Only those posts having Pay Level -4 or Less will be reserved for the Domiciles of J&K. Posts higher than Level-4 will be open and anyone from outside the state who meets the Qualification criteria can apply for these posts"

When JKSSB Recruitment 2020 will be announced?

This is the one Question that every Job Seeker is asking. Article 370 is gone, Internet Restored, but why Jobs are not yet announced. As of now, there are 3 reasons, as to Why government is not announcing the Jobs

1) Coronavirus: We all know that speed at which COVID-19 is spreading, cities all over the world are experiencing shutdowns. everyone is requested to stay indoors. In such a situation when all the resources are focused on COVID-19, announcement of Jobs looks impossible at this time. So, it is only after the coronavirus threat is over, JKSSB will start the recruitment process.

2) Domicile Law: Soon after the abrogation of Article-370, PRC gets invalid and now to prove the identity of Citizens of Jammu and Kashmir, Central Govt. will introduce another document known as Domicile. It is said, that Draft for Domicile Law is in the Final stages and can be announced anytime now. And Once the Domicile law is approved by Central Govt. , Recruitment agencies will start announcing the Job Notifications 

Update (On Domicile Law): On 1st April 2020, Ministry of Home Affairs, Govt. of India has announced the New Domicile Law of J&K, which defines, Who can be a Domicile of J&K? So, with this announcement, we can expect JKSSB to start recruitments as soon as possible.

3) Recruitment Rules: At this time, there are No Recruitment Rules framed by Govt. However, a committee has been constituted that will soon announce the Recruitment Rules for the UT of Jammu and Kashmir. Once the Rules are announced, we can expect Notifications by recruitment agencies. 

At this time, it is quite difficult to tell the exact date of announcement of vacancies, but we can safely say that, In the coming 2 to 3 month, we can expect the start of Recruitment process by govt. departments.
