Srinagar, May 21:

UT government of Jammu and Kashmir through a GAD order dated 20.05.22 has notified that from first of June 2022 verification rolls on first appointment to any position in the government shall be processed digitally through a specially designed web portal.

This means the previous practice of newly selected officials to various government positions submitting their verification rolls manually shall come to an end. According to sources, the new system is very much like the passport application system as the newly selected successful candidates shall be asked to fill in the verification related information online and submit it to the appointing authority who in turn after ensuring that the eligibility conditions pertaining to educational qualifications, age, reservation etc have been met and are backed by genuine certificates, shall forward the V-rolls to the CID for field enquiries and check of criminal records to ascertain the character conduct and antecedents of the selected candidates through its field functionaries which too shall take place via the digital platform.

The web portal has been designed by the IT department of University of Kashmir in record time and at a very competitive rate. By switching over from the manual to the digital, it is expected that employment verification would become speedier, time bound and transparent.
