Chief Minister’s instructions to all departments regarding MPSC recruitment
Mumbai: Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has taken serious note of the fact that some departments have not yet submitted applications for direct service recruitment through the Maharashtra Public Service Commission. In any case, all the departments should immediately review the sanctioned posts and send their demand forms to the commission by September 30, the Chief Minister directed the secretary on Wednesday.
Earlier, Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar had directed to send the details of vacancies in various departments of the state government to be filled by the Maharashtra Public Service Commission by September 30. The concerned departments were to prepare the point list and send it to the MPSC with proper approval. However, the new recruitment process is likely to be delayed as some departments have not sent applications for the posts despite repeated instructions. Loksatta had reported on September 21 under the headline ‘New year will dawn on MPSC advertisement’. Taking note of this, the Chief Minister directed all the departments to send demand papers by September 30.
Swapnil Lonakar, a young man from Pune, committed suicide while the convention was going on due to delay in the recruitment advertisement of MPSC. Taking serious note of this, it was announced that 15 thousand 511 MPSC posts will be filled by the government. Despite the Deputy Chief Minister repeatedly reviewing the process, the recruitment process is likely to be delayed due to delays by the departments.
Loksatta had on September 21 published the news that the new year would dawn for the advertisement of ‘MPSC’ as the administrative departments were delaying in submitting the demand letter to ‘MPSC’ even after the ruling. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar have taken note of this news.
