To harmonise J&K Competitive Examination with the All India Service Examination, the Cabinet chaired by Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti accorded sanction to the notification of the Jammu and Kashmir Combined Competitive Examination Rules, 2018, along with the Syllabus.
Presently, the scheme of examination, along with the syllabus for the preliminary and main examination is replica of the old scheme/syllabus of UPSC. However, in 2011, UPSC changed the scheme and syllabus regarding examination for selection to the All India Services.
The shifting to the new UPSC pattern in vogue will facilitate large number of candidates from the state to simultaneously prepare for both the Combined Competitive Examinations conducted by J&K PSC and that conducted by UPSC. This will further increase the chances of candidates belonging to the state to clear the prestigious UPSC Civil Services Examination.
The Cabinet also accorded sanction to the transfer of State land measuring 222 Kanals and 17 Marlas situated at village Katli, District Samba, in favour of the Industries and Commerce Department, for establishment of Industrial Estate.

In yet another decision, the Cabinet accorded sanction to the up-gradation of PHC Hazratbal, Srinagar to the level of Sub-District Hospital and Sub-centers at Domana, Jammu and Devar, Kupwara to the level of Primary Health Centers.
