Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Thursday said that the Assam Government will complete its recruitment process for 12,000 posts by September 22, taking a big step towards employment. The appointment letters will be given to 12,000 recruits in multiple departments of the government on September 22 at a function, he said.
“In our concerted push to complete hiring for 1 lakh jobs at the earliest, glad to share that today we have decided to complete recruitment for 12,000 posts,” said CM Sarma. These 12,000 posts include 5,200 constables and sub-inspectors in the Home Department, and 256 assistant engineers in the Public Works Department (PWD). The other listed vacancies were in Panchayat and Rural Development Department, Higher Education Department and Health Department, among others.
"The addition of another 12,000 employees in the service of the state government will help run the day-to-day activities more seamlessly," the chief minister said. In May, 30,000 vacancies were filled up and with these new recruitments, the Assam government has planned to hire a total of 42,000 people in less than six months.
