The Punjab government to fill all the engineering posts at the level of Junior Engineer (JE) and above in all Departments/ Boards/ Corporations/ Authorities etc shall be filled through Punjab Public Service Commission (PPSC) by conducting a common exam.
Punjab Employment Generation Minister Mr. Charanjit Singh Channi disclosing this here today said that decision in this regard was taken in the recent cabinet meeting which would bring uniformity in the recruitment process of these posts.
The Employment Generation Minister said that this decision would be very beneficial for the job aspirants and ease the recruitment process which was presently being carried out at the multiple levels of agencies. The recruitment through a single channel would bring uniformity through common test and smoothen the recruitment process.
Mr. Channi further said that the job aspirants would be able to focus on a consolidated, single syllabus for their preparation. ‘It would also reduce the financial burden on the applicants as well as on the state which had to bear the burden for conducting multiple tests. He said that the Punjab Cabinet has also approved a state employment plan for 2020-22 to fill jobs in government departments, boards, corporations and agencies in a phased and time-bound manner.
Rahul Tewari Secretary Employment Generation and Training said that this is the result of continuous efforts of the Punjab Government to ease all the recruitment process by bringing it under one umbrella of Ghar Ghar Rozgar Mission. He said that such more steps would be taken to bring efficiency and transparency in the recruitment for the government posts. A single exam would mean recruitment against a larger number of vacancies at one go which saves time and effort of the government machinery. This would also avoid a situation where a single student gets selected for multiple posts and delays the process of filling up the posts.
