PMDP-J&K starts filling up 3,000 Posts for migrant Pandits

The Jammu and Kashmir government has told the central government that it has started the process for filling up 3,000 posts, funded under Prime Minister’s Development Package, for the state.

Of these, 1660 posts have been referred to recruiting agency J&K service selection board while another 500 posts have been handed over to the home department for filling them up, the union home secretary was told by state government authorities during a meeting to review PMDP package at New Delhi on December 1.

During his visit to Kashmir in 2015, Prime Minister NarendraModi had announced Rs 80,000 crore development package for Jammu and Kashmir, a large portion of which was allocated for hydropower projects in the central sector and tunnels that would connect Ladakh with Kashmir.

The Pandit families who didn’t migrate from Kashmir after 1989 and are presently residing in the Valley have also been made eligible for jobs under the package, for the first time.

A review note that was prepared by the government reads that 500 posts were being referred to a panel to be constituted under divisional commissioner Kashmir for making selections amongst non-migrant Kashmiri Pandit families who are residing in Kashmir
