The Jammu and Kashmir government has said that anybody who has violated human rights or children’s rights would not be considered for selection to the position of chairman or member of the Jammu and Kashmir Child Rights Commission.

Those having a history of violating human rights or child rights are barred from holding crucial statutory posts in the rights agency, according to a government notification.


The notification further states that persons who have been convicted of a crime that the government considers to include moral turpitude are ineligible for the jobs in question.

The notification further indicates that former government employees are ineligible for these jobs, whether they were fired by the federal or state government.

The government of Jammu and Kashmir has put out an announcement seeking applicants for the position of chairman and six members of the child rights commission. Two of the six members must be female.

The process of appointing a chairman and members to the child rights panel has been initiated by the J&K government.

A five-person committee has been formed by the Social Welfare Department to evaluate applicants for these roles.

For the first time ever, Jammu and Kashmir will have a specialised agency whose only purpose is to investigate abuses of children’s rights.
