With the aim of completing the process for filling vacant posts in various departments without glitches, Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao has directed Deputy Chief Minister and Minister for Education Kadiyam Srihari to coordinate with the departments in the recruitment process.
The Chief Minister, who was reportedly vexed with continuous failures of Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) in completing the recruitment processes on schedule, has directed Srihari to take up the responsibility of ensuring coordination between TSPSC, Finance, Law departments and heads of departments.
Sources in the Secretariat said that the Chief Minister called Srihari on phone and told him to coordinate between key departments. He was quite keen to complete the recruitment processes as per schedule.
The Chief Minister has announced recruitment on large scale on the occasion of Independence Day celebrations on August 15. He said that recruitment would be initiated to fill 40,000 jobs and notifications would be released soon. Government is firm on filling about 1.12 lakh jobs at the earliest.
Government has already completed recruitment to 20,000 jobs; process is in progress for filling 40,000 jobs; and 40,000 more jobs would be filled by the end of next year. Filling up of remaining jobs belonging to corporations would also be taken up.
The Chief Minister was particularly concerned about legal problems which have been holding up the recruitment processes for months together.
The courts have been issuing stay orders on the recruitment. Appointments to Group – 1 and 2 posts have been stopped due to courts’ intervention. The Chief Minister wants to see that the legal issues are settled in favor of government and recruitment processes are completed on schedule.
On the Chief Minister’s directions, Deputy Chief Minister Srihari conducted meeting with the heads of TSPSC, Finance, Law and Chief Secretary and discussed issues involved in the recruitment process.
The meeting particularly focused on the legal problems arising in the recruitment process. Srihari discussed the guidelines to follow in recruitment process which would avoid legal complications. He also discussed the calendar of job recruitment notifications.
Whether there was a need to bring an amendment to the Presidential Order with the help of Centre or to take up recruitment process on the basis of old 10 districts has been discussed.
Srihari directed the officials to come up with a list of vacancies in various departments, academic qualifications for recruitment and details of roster points. He said that next meeting would be held on 21 of this month.
The Deputy Chief Minister told the media that the meeting was a preliminary one and no decision was taken. He says that legal problems have been dogging the recruitment programmes.
