The professionals said that they have been waiting for advertisement of vacancies in tourism for a long time. “The state government has been indifferent towards our career.
There are hundreds of tourism professionals moving from pillar to post to get jobs, but government hardly bothers to avail their services to improve the tourism sector in Kashmir,” according to Sajad Ahmad, a graduate in tourism studies.
Syed Javid Ahmad another tourism degree holder said, “On no one hand government boosts of tourism sector in Kashmir valley but on the other hand there are only few employees in the tourism department and most of them are going to retire in next few months.”
These degree holders are of the opinion that the tourism department had published a list of over two hundred employees for the promotion but only 24 employees have diploma and degree in tourism, while the rest of them are only 10th and 12th pass.
