Chandigarh: Punjab Cabinet on Monday made an announcement that 19,000 vaccines will filled by the government. The Cabinet ordered immediate steps to fill up the vacancies in various departments.

The vacancies to be filled up on priority include 5,000 in the Police department, 5,300 in electricity department (PSPCL), 2,500 teachers, 5,000 paramedic and specialized staff, including doctors and specialists, in the health department and 1,300 in the revenue department.

 

The chief minister has also asked other departments to submit a list of vacancies immediately so that the process of filling them up could also be initiated.

“While bringing more efficiencies into the concerned departments, the move will also generate additional employment in the state, which has witnessed the creation of significant job opportunities through a series of job melas and other initiatives in the past two years,” said an official spokesperson after a meeting of the state Cabinet, chaired by the chief minister.

The chief minister’s directives came even as the Council of Ministers decided to ease the recruitment rules for qualified civil services personnel in the state through amendments to various relevant legislations, thus paving the way for filling posts that remain vacant due to non-availability of suitable candidates.

 

The decision would help resolve the issues related to allocation of services on the basis of Punjab State Civil Services Combined Examination.
