qualifications and experience remained unfilled because of non-

The Board also decided to reconstitute the Sub-Committee setup in
140th Board meeting to scrutinize the cases of withheld
recommendations, necessitated due to transfer of some Members. On
the recommendations of the Sub-Committee constituted in the last
meeting, 43 withheld cases have already been cleared for being
forwarded to the indenting departments.
In a significant decision, the Board agreed to a four stage SoP to be put
in place, after getting it approved by the Government, for effecting
cancellations in respect of candidates, who after figuring in the select
lists/waitlists, do not furnish the necessary deficient documents. “The
streamlining of the cancellation issue will not only pave way for the
candidates in the waitlists to make it into the selection lists but will also
help the candidates next in order of merit to make it to the waitlists,”
the spokesman said adding the decision shall also cater to the
requirements of the indenting departments, who keep on requesting
the Board for forwarding candidates next in order of merit, after the
select list candidates and those in waitlists fail to join.

The Board has also designated Malik Suhail, Under Secretary, J&K
Services Selection Board, to be the Public Relations Officer of the J&K
Services Selection Board in addition to his own duties. The official
