Uttarakhand’s Cabinet, in a major decision, approved the proposal for transferring recruitment process under way for 7,000 posts from the Uttarakhand Subordinate Services Selection Commission (U.K.S.S.S.C.) to the Uttarakhand Public Service Commission (U.K.P.S.C.).
Further, five recruitment exams of the U.K.S.S.S.C. for 770 posts have been cancelled. These and other decisions were taken in the meeting of the Cabinet held in hill state’s capital on Friday evening. Chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami stressed that the state government will take all possible steps to maintain fairness and standards in the recruitment exams. For this purpose, the government has decided to get recruitment exams for 7,000 posts conducted by U.K.P.S.C.
Chief Minister has directed that a calendar of recruitment exams should be released soon and the recruitment process should be started. Dhami said that in addition to currently advertised posts, all departments should prepare a list of vacant posts for direct recruitment and submit it to the commission so that an advance calendar of future exams can be released too. According to official sources, in all such exams, for which exams have been conducted by U.K.S.S.S.C. and results have been announced but the selection has not been completed, the remaining process will be undertaken by U.K.S.S.S.C. In the exams for which U.K.S.S.S.C. has invited applications but not conducted any exam, candidates will not be charged application fee when the notice is published under the purview of U.K.P.S.C.
Chief Minister stressed that to maintain the morale of the youth, getting the recruitment exams conducted soon by U.K.P.S.C. and providing jobs to the youth is a top priority of the government. The government is committed to providing a healthy competitive environment to the unemployed youth, Dhami said. Among other decisions taken by the Cabinet, it was decided that 50 per cent of the vacant posts of principal in Government Inter colleges will be filled through examination. Few remaining construction works in the Kedarnath will be undertaken by the agency which had worked in the past. Further, five Rajiv Gandhi Navoday Vidyalayas will be managed in society mode. The Cabinet also gave its nod to opening Sainik schools in mountainous areas. The government will consider the availability of land and building for this purpose.
In recent past the U.K.S.S.S.C. paper-leak case has elicited strong criticism, raised serious questions and protests from youth aspiring to secure government jobs. The Special Task Force, so far, arrested 35 persons accused in the case.
