Telangana: CM KCR announces notification for 80,039 govt jobs – The Siasat Daily

Hyderabad: Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has announced the job notification for 80,039 job vacancies in the state on Wednesday. He has also declared the regularization of 11,103 contract employee jobs in the state. That takes the announcement of a total of 91,142 jobs in the state.
“The process of filling up these vacancies will begin immediately,” he declared in the state Assembly.
The announcement comes when the issue of unemployment has become so heated with frequent protests by opposition parties and unemployed youth across the state. The CM blamed state bifurcation issues and court orders as the reason for the stall in issuing the notification. “The centre should arbitrate these issues but is not doing so. The claims made by the Andhra Pradesh government asking for a share in Nizam inherited properties are bizarre. These issues have made the whole situation quite complex,” he remarked.
“From the erstwhile Andhra Pradesh, the new state has inherited contract employees. The government has decided that it’s not right to have such a huge number of contract employees in the public sector. That is why in 2014, on humanitarian grounds, the government has decided the regularize these jobs. But due to the court cases filed by a few narrow-minded political parties and the interim orders passed by the high court, this process came to a halt. But the government kept fighting in the courts of law. And, due to these efforts, in December 2021, the high court struck off the writ petitions. Now that all the obstacles have been removed, the government has now regularized the services of contract employees,” CM KCR said. “The process of contract-based hiring will no more be there in the state of Telangana,” he declared.
“For others, politics is a game, for us, it’s a task,” the CM remarked in the assembly.
After the regularization of these jobs, we have still found vacancies for 80,039 jobs in the state. I feel happy to inform the unemployed youth of the state that the process of filling up these vacancies will immediately begin. The state government spending will go up to about Rs 7300 crores due to filling these vacancies and regularizing contract jobs. Even then, the government is moving forward in a brave manner.
The state government has so far given notifications for 1.56 lakh jobs and has filled up 1.33 lakh posts so far. Filling up vacancies of around 23,000 posts is underway,” the Chief Minister said.
The CM further said that the government has decided to relax the upper age limit for direct recruitment keeping in view the aspirations of the unemployed youth. “To enable more unemployed become eligible to compete in the proposed recruitment we have decided to move the bar up by ten years, except for uniformed services like police. With this, the upper age limit will be 44 years for O.C, 49 years for SC, ST, BC, 54 years for Physically handicapped, and 47 years for Ex-Servicemen,” he informed.
