HYDERABAD, JULY 06, 2024:  Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy has made it clear that the government is committed to fill all the vacancies in the government departments and ready to take decisions to address the issues raised by the job aspirants.  The Chief Minister asked the unemployed youth not to fall prey to the conspiracies hatched by some political parties and vested interests.

The CM assured that the government will take appropriate decisions ensuring no legal hurdles are faced again due to the sudden change of rules during the examination period. The CM cautioned the unemployed will be meted out injustice and the present job notifications will also be cancelled if the government takes wrong decisions like in the previous government.

Government has already issued notifications to fill  28,942 posts as promised to the unemployed,  the CM said that  his government cleared all legal hurdles pending for years  to fill  Group -1, Group 2 and Group -3 posts. The Government is putting all efforts to fill the vacancies by conducting the exams as per the job calendar.  The CM announced that the job calendar will be released after discussion in the upcoming budget session of the state legislative Assembly.  The Chief Minister assured that the job calendar will be prepared in such a way  that the job aspirants will not face any difficulties to appear for other job  recruitment exams which are being conducted by the central government  and other recruitment boards.

Mr Revanth Reddy accused the political parties of playing with the lives of unemployed for political gains when the government is striving hard to render justice to the job aspirants.  The CM said that the unemployed youth will suffer more and the official process for recruitment will be stopped if the government takes decisions contrary to the provisions in the notifications under the pressure of political conspiracies.

The CM held a meeting on job notifications on Friday evening. Bhongir MP Ch Kiran Reddy, MLC Balmuri Venkat, Youth Congress State President Shivsena Reddy, Sama Rammohan Reddy, Professor Riaz, Teachers JAC Harshvardhan Reddy, OU student leaders Changani Dayakar , Manavatarai, Bala Lakshmi, Charakonda Venkatesh, Kalva Sujatha and others participated in the meeting.

During the three hour long meeting, the CM inquired about the demands and concerns of the unemployed.  Soon after the meeting, the chief minister called Chief Secretary Santhi Kumari and other top officials and discussed the demands raised by the unemployed and the ways to solve them.  The meeting reviewed the demand for the selection of candidates at the rate of 1:100 in the place of 1: 50 in the Group One mains examination.   The officials explained to the CM that the group 1 examination was postponed for two times due to paper leakage and wrong decisions taken by the previous government.  The Congress government withdrew a petition from the Supreme Court and issued fresh notification for Group one by adding more posts.

Four lakh candidates appeared for the Group 1  prelims examination which was conducted after a gap of 12 years.  The TGPSC ( Telangana  Public Service Commission)  conducted the preliminary examination in  a strict manner recently . According to the notification, the selection for mains will be done on the basis of merit in the prelims at the rate of 50 candidates for each post.

Officials explained to the CM that the present rules permitted 50 candidates, based on merit in the prelims, for each post to appear for mains exams. The threat of court intervention is not ruled out if the rules are amended to select 100 candidates for each post and the risk of cancellation of notification is also there again.  The officials told the CM changing of the provisions in the notification will also not be legally valid. The officials brought to the notice of the CM the comments made by the High Court when the Group 1 examination was cancelled for the second time. The officials said that the State High Court cancelled the examination for a single reason that the biometric system was not followed as per the then notification issued.  The officials also explained the judgment delivered by the Supreme Court in the case of UPSC v. Gaurav Dwivedi in 1999.  The Supreme Court made it clear that giving opportunity to  more people  than mentioned in the notification, will  do injustice to those who are already qualified.

The CM and officials also deliberated on the increase of Group 2 and Group 3 posts.  The officials informed  CM Revanth Reddy that increasing the posts while the examination process is on will  be a violation of the notification and the chance of court intervention will be plenty .  The government increased  the number of group one posts because the  Group 1 notification was issued afresh.  There is no  such flexibility to increase the posts in the Group 2 and Group 3 notifications.

The leaders of the student union brought to the attention of the CM that the candidates are losing out as the Group 2 and DSC examinations are being held back to back. They said that DSC exams are being held  from July 17 to August 5 and the Group 2 exams will be on August 7 and  August 8. As a result, the job aspirants are facing difficulty  in preparation. The CM assured them that the government will discuss with the TGPSC and the Education Department about the exam dates and take a further decision.
