Telangana gears up for mega recruitment drive
In what can be good news for job aspirants in Telangana, the State Government is gearing up for a mega recruitment drive.
According to the Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, the newly-created State would fill about 50,000 vacancies in various departments including the much-coveted State cadre posts of Group-I and Group-II services.
However, it would be done in a phased manner and notification could be issued for about 20,000 vacancies soon, according to official sources. The work on ascertaining exact number of vacancies had already begun in each department.
Earlier this month, the State Government had announced the formation of Telangana Public Service Commission and the process of bifurcation of employees of existing Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission is currently on.
Once this is done, the notifications for Group-I, Group-II, lecturers in Govt junior, degree and polytechnic colleges, executive and assistant executive engineers’ recruitment would be released by the Commission on a priority basis, said a senior official.
Revision in syllabus
However, the syllabus and exam patterns are set for an overhaul in view of the State bifurcation. Some portions in the syllabus for State cadre exams such as Andhra Pradesh History and Andhra Pradesh Economy would have to be revised.
Meanwhile, the students and other job aspirants are in a State of confusion and are demanding speedy recruitments as there have been no State Government recruitment in the erstwhile united Andhra Pradesh for the last three years.
The students of Osmania University, which was the hub of agitation for separate Telangana State, have been protesting against the regularisation of contract staff and release of recruitment notifications.
