This is to bring to your kind notice that the recruitment drive that is going on these days at Subordinate Selection Board, Hamirpur is playing with the careers of so many students.
I was called for the personalÂ interview after clearing the written test that was conducted by the Subordinate Selection Board, Hamirpur on 9th Oct 2009 at 9:00 AM at Hamirpur.Â There were nearlyÂ 40 candidates who were scheduled for the interview on the same day. All the candidates were required to get their document verified before finally appearing for the personal interview.
When I was called for the document verification at 12:00Â noon,Â one of the official on duty informed me that I’m not eligible for appearing in front of the interview board because I had PsychologyÂ as one of my subjectÂ during my Graduation. He asked me to wait for some time saying that we will give you a letter regarding it.
Nearly aÂ 4 PM he gave me letter in which it was written ” Your Candidature has been cancelled because you have such combination of subjects that are being excluded by govt. recently now“
It was a great shock for meÂ when Â with in now time, I was informedÂ that the B.Ed Degree for whichÂ I spent nearlyÂ Â Â 18 year ( starting from Nursery toÂ Graduation Degree plus one year forÂ B.Ed Degree)Â is ofÂ no use, since it can’ nt fetch me a job for whichÂ I have cleared a written test.
I just want to know through you as a medium What is my fault that I was allowed to doÂ B.Ed Degree with Public Administration and Psychology as subject combination. It would have been better if the govt. had made it clear to us in the beginning that the students who have certain combination of subjects at Graduation level are not allowed to pursue the B.Ed course then I would haveÂ opted for something else.Â Till date the admissions are being made on same pattern.
I just Â wounder Why Govt is playing with the career ofÂ so many students, when the degrees the are providing are of no use, because they will not meet the criteria that govt. is notifying day after day. For newÂ students it may be possible to change their career path, butÂ what about those studentsÂ who have done their B.Ed degree before the new notification that is being issued by the govt. was notÂ there. It means that their Degree is of no use now.
This is not only my case but their are many other students whose candidature have been cancelled on the same basis. One of the candidate called from Lauhal Spiti was also rejected on the same basis. We were also not given the TA/DA as was mentioned in the call latter saying that your candidature had been cancelled so you will not be paid any TA/DA also.
I want to know that who will pay the compensation for the careers that are being ruined by such notification beside the mental tension the the students like me are going through.
I know and even believe that media plays a vital role inÂ uplifting the society and bring justice to the common people. Now I and Students like me have onlyÂ faith on you, and evenÂ believeÂ that you have that powerÂ to bring Â justice to all of us. NowÂ our careers relies on your shoulders.
Hoping you will certainly consider our case.
