A recruitment panel each for Grade III and Grade IV posts shortly


GUWAHATI: A streamlined recruitment regime for grade III and grade IV posts is on the cards in Assam. The State government has initiated the constitution of two state-level recruitment commissions – one each for the recruitment of grade III and IV posts.

The two commissions will come up by January end or early February. Each of the two commissions will have a chairman of the ranks – Additional Chief Secretary or Principal Secretary – and two members—Commissioner-Secretary or Secretary. After their formation, the two commissions will seek details of all analogous vacant third and fourth-grade posts, hold the examinations and publish the merit lists for the departments concerned to issue appointment letters.

The Personnel Department has already moved the file for the two recruitment commissions. Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma will have the last say on the two chairmen and four members of the two recruitment commissions.

This move, if trodden as planned, will put in place a mechanism to hold recruitment examinations for all grade III and grade IV posts in a streamlined manner. There are many Grade III and Grade IV posts in different offices under different departments of the State government requiring the same minimum educational qualification. Such posts lie vacant in the state-level, directorate-level and district-level offices. For example, all the deputy commissioners are appointing authorities. So are the directors of directorates. Different offices under different establishments recruit candidates at different time schedules. It makes the candidates fulfilling the requisite qualification apply separately for posts under individual establishments. They go through separate selection processes. The overlapping of the time schedules is very common in the existing system, besides more expenditure.

This clumsy system of holding recruitment examinations in the state puts enormous stress on the resources. The purpose of the proposed recruitment commissions is to streamline, regulate and expedite the recruitment process.

It will open the gate for large-scale recruitments of grade III and grade IV posts in the state.
