With an eye on the Lok Sabha and state Assembly polls,Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Tuesday announced that around 65,000 posts in various departments,boards and corporations will soon be filled. This comes a day after Hooda took stock of the job scenario in the state.

All departments have been issued strict instructions to send their requisition in this regard to the Haryana Staff Selection Commission (HSSC) by November 1. Hence,the government is now set to collect final data of Class III and Class IV vacancies that have been pending. It has also taken a serious note of the fact that various departments have made direct recruitment to Class III posts without sending requisition to the government.

Hooda himself had taken stock of the current situation and ordered that all requirements regarding Class III vacancies should reach the government this week.

Chief Secretary Pradeep Kumar Chaudhery had cautioned all departments,boards,corporations and public sector units to avoid making any direct recruitments against Class III vacancies.

Despite clear instructions from the government,most departments failed to send their requisition to HSSC. Hence,the posts are without permanent employees and certain departments,boards and corporations are arbitrarily making appointments.

The chief secretary,in his communication,had said: “It is observed that a large number of vacancies of Class III are lying vacant in various departments,boards,corporations and PSUs. Apart from this,it is also observed that some departments,boards,corporations and PSUs have sent requisition to HSSC for a lesser number of posts than the actual vacancies.”

Sources said that many departments have adjusted their own people — who are less qualified — to posts and thus,did not send the details to the government. Earlier,the finance department also objected to temporary arrangements,as it created problems in providing funds against these posts. The chief secretary has said in his communication that government has decided that all such requisitions be sent to HSSC before October 15.

The government had already started the process to recruit 25,000 teachers in April. The recruitments are in the process and more vacancies are pouring in,especially in postgraduate categories. The government is recruiting teachers from pre-primary to senior secondary level for schools where there is lack of staff. The police department has also starting recruiting 12,000 employees this week.
