It has come to fore that government has frozen around 253 vacant positions of teaching and non-teaching posts in north Kashmir’s Bandipora district and used for drawing salaries of Grade-II and III teachers.

Moreover, the salary of other left out Grade-II and III teachers is drawn against the supernumerary posts created by the School Education Department.

These vacancies have 23 posts of junior assistants, 33 posts of laboratory assistants, 19 posts of accountant assistants, three posts of junior librarians, four posts of library assistants, 59 class-IV posts and 112 posts of teachers.

These vacancies will not be advertised till the teachers absorbed as Grade-II and III retire from services. An official said that same is the case in other districts too as the vacant posts were frozen in the year 2019 after the government ordered transition of SSA teachers as Grade-II and III teachers.
