New orders have been issued by the Jammu Kashmir government amid the current Covid situation.
The government on Sunday, in a major crackdown on ‘anti-nationals’ and stone pelters, issued orders that prohibit passport clearance, no provision of government jobs, among other restraints.
“All the field units of CID SB-Kashmir are hereby directed to ensure that during verification related to passport service and any other verification related to government services, schemes, the subject’s involvement in law and order, stone-pelting cases and other crime prejudicial to the security of the State be specifically looked into and same must be corroborated from local police station records,” the fresh order reads.
All digital evidence and police records will be taken into consideration.
Earlier, an amendment by the Union Territory administration in the Jammu and Kashmir Civil Services (Verification of Character and Antecedents) Instructions, 1997 mandated a satisfactory CID report in order to land a government job.
As per the fresh amendment, in case of in-service employees requiring re-verification from the CID, details of one’s postings and promotions since the date of appointment would have to be furnished besides details of jobs of one’s parents, spouse, children and step-children, parents-in-law, brothers-in-law, and sisters-in-law.
Earlier in July, Jammu and Kashmir administration had also announced to issue a domicile certificate to the husband of a native woman.
After the modifications in 2020 and later this year the rule says, a person residing in Jammu and Kashmir for at least 15 years can be considered to be a domicile of the Union Territory.
