Himachal Pradesh Cabinet on January 14 approved filling of 1900 posts in the state, including 1500 for police constables through direct recruitment.
In a meeting held after two months, the cabinet also decided to change the name of HP Subordinate Services Selection Board as HP Staff Selection Commission and directed concerned departments to start the selection process for direct recruitments for the posts.
The cabinet offered a three-year extension to retiring medical teachers of state-run Indira Gandhi Medical College (Shimla) and Dr R P Medical College, Tanda (Kangra) if they accept the offer to join the two new medical colleges coming up at Nahan and Chamba.
The government had raised the age of superannuation in January 2012 from 58 to 62 to meet the shortage of faculty. However, the Director Medical Education and Principal (medical administrators) are not included among those eligible for the extension.
