For the first time in Jammu and Kashmir, the responsibility of completing the recruitment process for the posts of Sub Inspector has been entrusted to the Jammu and Kashmir Services Recruitment Board. Sub Inspectors were to be recruited in 2019. This recruitment could not be done due to the circumstances and the situation arising out of Corona. The selection was done by the recruitment board of the police organization. Earlier the age limit to get admitted in SI was 33 years.
