Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao on Tuesday announced that the recruitment process for filling about 78,000 government jobs in various departments will start within the next two to three months. He stated that the government will carry out the division of employees as per the new zonal system and he will hold discussions with employees associations in this regard after the Dasara festival.
Responding to a question raised by Congress Legislative Party leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka during a short discussion on ‘Telangana Dalit Bandhu’ in the State Assembly here, Chandrashekhar Rao said the State government had issued notifications for 1.51 lakh government jobs since State formation and filled 1.31 lakh vacancies. “We will give complete information to the legislators in a pen drive. The Centre took seven months to approve the new zonal system after State formation. Hence, the delay in filling the vacancies,” he said.
The Chief Minister said the TRS government has ensured that 95 per cent of government jobs are reserved for local youth by getting the necessary Presidential Order. He said due to the new zonal system, the people of Mulugu and Jayashankar Bhupalpally districts will get employment in their home districts. “This is our achievement. Prime Minister Modi agreed to our requests after lot of appeals repeatedly. In the next two-three months, we will finalise zonal-wise division of employees and thereafter, all posts will be filled at mandal level. Thereafter, we will take up job recruitments. I will hold talks with the employees associations soon,” he added
