Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Thursday chaired the meeting of the Arunachal Pradesh Staff Selection Board (APSSB) to strengthen the board for a robust and efficient recruitment process.
During the meeting here, Khandu said that the APSSB is the biggest reform of the Arunachal Government towards transparency and meritocracy.
He said APSSB is among the few boards in the country leading in proactive disclosure of information in the public domain, adding, this has enabled the candidates to access information without the need to file RTI.
The CM prioritised publishing the annual calendar of examinations, which would enable the completion of the entire recruitment process, starting from receiving a requisition to publishing 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, Khandu added.
He also urged the Board to keep the target of conducting one recruitment exam every month.
Assuring that there would be no let down in providing any support from the state Government in strengthening APSSB, the CM said the requirement of the Board in terms of manpower and any other facilities will be always kept on priority.
He also discussed the revision of the recruitment rules of various posts for Group C, so as to make them uniform for similar posts across various departments.
Khandu 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.
The APSSB was established on October 4, 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. With agency inputs
