Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh chief minister Pema Khandu on Thursday assured the full support of his government to strengthen the Arunachal Pradesh State Selection Board (APSSB).
“There would be no let down in providing any support from the state government in strengthening the APSSB. The requirement of the board in terms of manpower and any other facilities will be always kept on priority,” said Khandu.
The chief minister was addressing a meeting of the APSSB at his secretariat office here.
Khandu said the APSSB is the biggest reform of Arunachal government towards transparency and meritocracy.
He said the APSSB is among the few boards in the country leading in proactive disclosure of information in the public domain. He said this has enabled the candidates to access information without the need to file RTI.
The APSSB was established in October 04, 2018 for the purpose of conducting examinations and selection of candidates for appointments to the subordinate services or in the Group C posts of the Arunachal government.
The chief minister, during the meeting, prioritised on publishing the Annual Calendar of Examinations, which would enable the completion of the entire recruitment process, starting from receiving of requisition to publishing of results within a span of one year.
“This would make the candidates aware of the examination schedule in advance and would also ward off any feeling of uncertainty,” he said.
Khandu also requested the board to keep the target of conducting one recruitment exam every month.
The chief minister also had discussion on revision of the recruitment rules of various posts for Group C, so as to make them uniform for similar posts across various departments.
He said with the robust recruitment system in place, the state government can hope to have a well motivated workforce and passionate enough to work for the development of the state.
