Over 73,365 base level posts lying vacant in govt depts
There were around 87,424 vacant posts in different base level post of all departments. As per the sources, the government managed to fill up only 14,059 posts in the current financial year till December 28, 2022, leaving a vacancy of 73,365 posts.
As per the information given by the department committee, the empowered committee of the state government has approved filling up of 40,694 posts and requisitions have been made to different agencies to initiate the process of recruitment in 33,416 vacant posts.
As there is a huge vacancies at base level posts due to restriction on recruitment by the Finance department since 2001, the state government constituted a five-member empowered committee headed by additional chief secretary of the department in 2014 for granting permission for filling up base level posts.
Now the question arise, as how a large number of base level posts are still lying vacant even after eight years of constitution of the empowered committee.
