Govt clarifies on employment

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Oct 8 � Clarifying on the status and developments concerning government employments, the State Government today said that Revenue Minister Dr Bhumidhar Barman�s statement in the Assembly on July 12 regarding the number of persons appointed by the Government from 2001 till May 2010 was confined to 41 departments only and that too excluding the major employment-generation departments like Education (Primary and Secondary), Health and Family Welfare, etc.

The Government, in an official release, said that the figures on the number of appointments provided by the Chief Minister at a recent press conference were the updated ones covering all the 59 departments. �However, since May 2010, large-scale appointments have taken place in Forest, Police, Health, Education, SAD, etc. Further, more than 31,000 posts have been created to absorb muster roll and work-charge employees. The total number of persons given regular employment, however, will go up if appointments made in various boards, corporations and other government undertakings are taken into account,� it said, adding that therefore the question of misleading the public with wrong facts and figures did not arise.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today directed to withdraw the circular instructing all directorates to keep in abeyance the process of filling up of grade-III and grade-IV posts in the offices of the directorates as it created some confusion about the enforcement of the instruction.

�The circular had been issued in connection with several writ petitions filed in the Gauhati High Court over appointment of candidates selected and sponsored by the Director of Employment and Craftsmen Training, Assam, against vacancies of junior assistants and grade-IV posts,� it said.

The Chief Minister further said that the Government reconsidered the matter and now decided to withdraw the instructions keeping in abeyance the process of filling up of grade-III and grade-IV posts in the directorates, as there was an urgent need to fill up the vacant posts in certain departments.
