More than two-decades after its last direct recruitment, Dhanbad-based Coal Mines Provident Fund Organisation (CMPFO) is all set to invite applications for appointment of 281 lower division clerks and 15 provident fund inspectors.
CMPFO, a statutory body under the Union coal ministry, said the forms for applications would be available online from Friday. The last direct appointment by the organisation was made way back in 1989.
According to joint commissioner of CMPFO U.P. Kamal, the written test for the examination will be held on March 24, with February 12 being set as the last day of submission of the forms.
“Local residents have been asking us to conduct a recruitment drive for many years now. A number of officers have retired over the years creating vacancies. We decided to carry out a recruitment drive on our own after the staff selection committee refused to do the needful,” Kamal said.
He added that CMPFO’s board of directors had already given a go-ahead to the process.
The examination he said will be held in two phases — a written test followed by an interview — that will be organised in 19 states of the country simultaneously.
According to the details released, a candidate applying for the post of inspectors should not be 32 years of age and 27 years for upper division clerks.
