In a Remarkable Move, Jharkhand Government Distributes Appointment Letters
Chief Minister Hemant Soren Personally Presents Appointment Letters
Expressing his astonishment, CM Hemant Soren remarked that he had never witnessed such a large-scale distribution of appointment letters in the state before.
Government’s Commitment to Alleviating Employment Struggles
In the current employment scenario, a peculiar situation has arisen nationwide, with organizations that previously offered the most job opportunities now experiencing a decline. Despite these circumstances, the government of Jharkhand is striving to alleviate the employment struggles faced by the youth in the state.
This commitment is reflected in the ongoing recruitment process, which ensures timely appointments in the state. Hemant Soren noted that although the army used to provide the maximum number of jobs in the country, even that avenue has become scarce.
The Chief Minister acknowledged that privatization has become a prevailing trend in the country, leading to an increase in contractual arrangements. He further expressed concern about the deteriorating condition of the railways and the widespread selling of assets.
Appointment Letters Distribution Program
The appointment letter distribution program commenced at Morhabadi Situation Ground in Ranchi, with Lower Division Clerks receiving their letters first. Subsequently, successful candidates from various departments were presented appointment letters according to their respective districts.
Appointment letters were granted in the Panchayati Raj Department, Revenue Registration and Land Reforms Department, Finance Department, and Food Supply Department. Chief Minister Hemant Soren, along with Rural Development and Panchayati Raj Minister Alamgir Alam, Planning and Development, Finance and Food Minister Dr. Rameshwar Oraon, Labor, Planning, Training and Skill Development Minister Satyanand Bhokta, and other officials, graced the occasion.
Hemant Soren personally handed over appointment letters to 1,633 Panchayat Secretaries in the Panchayati Raj Department, 707 Lower Division Clerks in the Revenue Registration and Land Reforms Department, 166 Lower Division Clerks in the Finance Department, and 44 Lower Division Clerks in the Food Supply Department.
A Journey of Six Years
The appointment process for these candidates, who received their appointment letters from CM Hemant Soren, spanned over six years. Candidates faced a long and arduous journey, starting from application submission to finally receiving their appointment letters. The document verification process was completed in 2019; however, disputes between scheduled and non-scheduled districts prolonged the appointment.
Ministers Encourage and Congratulate
Finance and Food Supply Minister Dr. Rameshwar Oraon expressed happiness for both the appointed candidates and the appointing authorities, emphasizing the increased responsibilities of the newly appointed individuals. He urged them to contribute to the state’s development.
Rural Development Minister Alamgir Alam congratulated the candidates on receiving their appointment letters and announced the upcoming implementation of E-Panchayat. He stressed the importance of preparedness among Panchayat Sevak Secretaries for this initiative.
Labor and Employment Minister Satyanand Bhokta highlighted the Panchayat Secretaries’ role in issuing birth and death certificates, urging them to maintain close connections with the public. The event was attended by Rajya Sabha MP Dr. Mahua Maji, MLA Rajesh Kachhap, Chief Secretary Sukhdev Singh, Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister Bandana Dadel, Secretaries Rajeev Arun Ekka.
