SRINAGAR : SKIMS Medical College authorities in a fresh recruitment process have asked for the submission of domicile certificates, making it mandatory at the very outset of applying for posts. However, as per rules, the submission of domicile certificate is required only at the time of formal appointment.

As per many candidates, the submission of Domicile certificates at the time of applying for job is an impractical move as the applicants who have applied for domicile certificates online even a month back are yet to get their certificates, putting the candidates who intend to apply for SKIMS posts into a fix.

“I have applied for my domicile certificate more than a month back but I have not been provided this even after a month. The government is playing dual policy with the candidates as earlier it said that the certificate is to be produced after the appointment only, even during the recent recruitment process of J&K bank it was shown mandatory only after the appointment.

The government should come clear over this issue and provide us relaxation too so that we can apply for SKIMS posts and also carry forward the process of getting a domicile certificate,” said a group of candidates.Principal JVC says there is ample space of time in applying for the advertised post and he has no say in setting the rules for the recruitment process.

While talking to Principal JVC Bemina said, “We have advertised these posts on August 14th while the access for submission of forms was granted to the desired candidates only today.

The applicants should have applied for domicile certificates by now as since 14th of this month more than ten days have already passed. The last date for the submission of forms has been out as 22nd September so there is almost a gap of one month to obtain and submit their domicile certificates at the time of applying for these posts. The order is from the government and I have no say in this.”
