The Mehbooba Mufti government has directed the Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board (JKSSB) to complete recruitment for 2,154 teachers’ posts in the next four months.

To meet the dearth of staff in schools, the government has directed the JKSSB to complete the recruitment for 2154 posts in the next four months, an official spokesman said.

The department of education has referred 3,450 posts to JKSSB which include 2,154 vacancies of teachers and 1,289 of non-teaching staff.

Chairing a meeting in Jammu on Thursday, the state Minister for Education Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari asked School Education Department Secretary Farooq Ahmed Shah and JKSSB Chairperson Simrandeep Singh to coordinate and complete the paperwork and start the recruitment process in January.

The minister directed the SSB chairperson to complete the recruitment in all respects in next four months, the spokesperson said.
