Agartala: The Tripura government has decided to appoint 1,178 Panchayat Executive Officers, a group-C non-gazetted post and 35 Dental Medical Officers through Tripura Public Service Commission (TPSC), a minister said on Wednesday.

The decision to appoint the officers was taken in the meeting of the Council of Ministers on Tuesday, Information and Cultural Affairs Minister Sushanta Chowdhury told reporters in the state Civil Secretariat here.
