J&K Civil Secretariat Recruitment 2020

How many Assistant Professor Posts will be advertised in 2020-21?

The answer to this Question lies with J&K's Higher Education Department only, as they are the authority that will forward the posts to JKPSC for Advertisement. However, we can predict the No. of Upcoming Assistant Professor vacancies.

First thing is that Assistant Professor Post was last advertised in 2013 and 2017 only. So, there is a gap of 4 years between the Two Recruitment and moreover, some posts remained unfilled as there were no suitable candidates who full fill the eligibility conditions.

So, we can expect that Upcoming JKPSC Assistant Professor Recruitment 2020 will have at least 1000+ Posts. Though this is not official and is based on Guesswork only. Actual Numbers will be known only when the Official Advt is announced.

Here is how we are calculating these 1000 Assistant Professor Posts

1) 52 Degree colleges are approved with the creation of 208 AP Posts. This is the minimum staff created. So more posts will be created when the course work starts.

2) Retirement of Staff of Degree Colleges in the previous 3 to 4 years.

3) Introduction of New Courses in Degree Colleges of J&K, leading to the creation of AP posts for these subjects.

With these points, we expect the Higher Education Department of J&K to create a minimum of 1000 AP Posts in J&K, owing to the increasing No. of Post-Graduates and NET/SET Qualifiers.

When JKPSC Assistant Professor Recruitment be announced?

This is the most difficult question to answer, as none other than JKPSC knows when the Recruitment will be announced. Unlike SSC and UPSC that releases the Annual Calendar for Upcoming Exams, the same is not done by JKPSC.

And as such, we cannot comment on When the posts will be announced. 

Moreover, there is no recruitment announced by JKPSC from the last 9 months due to the Bifurcation of State and Revocation of Article 370 and 35A. Moreover, in the absences of any Domicile, Recruitment and Reservation Rules, it is not technically feasible for PSC to announce the posts

As per the Latest Development, Reservation Rules and Domicile Rules have announced and now the stage is set for JKPSC to announce the posts. But due to COVID-19 and Lockdown, there is Postponement of all the Current and Upcoming Recruitments.

At this point of time, we can say that the Fresh Notification will be announced, once there will control on the spread of Virus and at this time, we cannot predict, how long it will take, But we all are praying that this Pendamic will be over and Bumper vacancies as promised will be announced by the Govt. in the coming months.
