Srinagar: The J&K Services Selection Board on Wednesday said it will hold a one-time separate Computer Based Test (CBT) for various posts of the COVID positive aspirants scheduled to appear in the exam from January 21-24 in view of a steep spike in cases.
Confirming the development, a board spokesperson said in a statement that the special opportunity in the interest of fairplay and equity will be subject to production of documentary evidence.
“The documentary evidence shall be cross verified from concerned Health authorities,” it added.
The board has scheduled the CBT for the posts including Junior Assistant, Cashier and Store Attendant on January 20, 21 and 24. Many aspirants demanded the exams be postponed due to the prevailing COVID spike, a demand turned down by the JKSSB, which said it will conduct the exams while following all the precautionary measures to contain the disease spread.
