SRINAGAR, JULY 11: The State Administrative Council (SAC), headed by Governor N. N. Vohra approved exemption of turnover and experience conditions for all State Start-ups and Micro & Small Enterprises (MSEs) registered in Jammu and Kashmir including price preference of 20% for public procurement by Government Departments and Organizations.
The decision is expected to help generate large scale employment opportunities among skilled and budding entrepreneurs of the State.
The decision aims at creation of a favourable ecosystem for the State Start-ups and MSE Sector by enabling them to participate in the tendering process of all State Government Departments and agencies on an equal platform vis-à-vis experienced entrepreneurs and companies without worrying for turnover and experience qualifications.
Advisors to the Governor, Shri B B Vyas, Shri Vijay Kumar and Shri Khurshid Ahmad Ganai besides Chief Secretary, Shri B V R Subrahmanyam attended the meeting.
The SAC deliberated upon the various proposals submitted by Administrative departments for its consideration and approval.
Referral of non-gazetted vacancies
The SAC also approved the proposal for seeking of prior clearance/concurrence of the Finance Department before referring non-gazetted vacancies under direct recruitment quota to J&K Services Selection Board and other recruiting agencies, as the case may be.
While this measure will help to correctly appreciate the manpower requirement of various departments, it will also facilitate data capturing of the vacancy position in the departments and referrals made to the recruiting agency during a particular period, so as to avoid duplicity of referrals noticed in the past.
