Director Colleges J&K -SRINAGAR: The Jammu and Kashmir government has extended Dr Yasmeen Ashai’s tenure as Director of Colleges in the Higher Education Department J&K by one year. The order for this extension was issued by Alok Kumar, the Principal Secretary of the Higher Education Department.
The government order reads, “Sanction is granted for the extension of Dr Yasmeen Ashai’s tenure as Director of Colleges, HED J&K, for a period of one year from the expiration of her last tenure as Director of Colleges or until further orders, whichever comes first.” The terms and conditions of this extension period will remain consistent with Government Order number 248-JK (HE) of 2021, dated August 4, 2021.
It’s worth noting that Dr Yasmeen Ashai was appointed as Director of Colleges in HED J&K in August 2021, based on the recommendations of a selection committee established in May 2021.
In 2021, the J&K government formed a high-level committee for the selection of the Director of Colleges in the Higher Education Department. This six-member committee was led by the Administrative Secretary of HED as its Chairman, with the Special Secretary of HED serving as the member secretary. This marked a departure from the previous practice of handling the selection of the Director of Colleges within the department itself.
