    Srinagar, Nov 26: The authorities are sitting on the recruitment of the posts of Foresters that were advertised several years back even as the process is witnessing continuous delay since 2018 with no development in sight.

    As per details, several notifications were published through which around 200 posts were invited to be filled by the JKSSB, however, later the matter went to court and the recruitment was stayed.

    However, in the year 2018, the stay was cleared by the court, but despite that, the recruitment process has not been started so far which has resulted in apprehensions among the aspirants with regard to the overall recruitment process particularly the role of spoiler played by the concerned department.

    It is to be noted here that court while considering the age factor of the aspirants and overall time already wasted concerning the recruitment, the stay was vacated, directing the recruitment kick-start the process. However, there has not been any development in this regard so far.
