Bhubaneswar: Amid the confusion regarding Odisha government Job Recruitments, the State Finance Department on Wednesday issued a clarification stating that all the on-going government job recruitment process will continue.
Further clarifying the same, the Finance department said that all the vacant government posts will be filled up as usual and the temporary restriction is only on the ‘creation of new posts’.
There had been confusion over the July 7 announcement of austerity measures in the wake of a shortfall in the realisation of revenues and higher spending for COVID-19 management.
The announcements made by the State Finance department, in this regard, as follows:
1. There shall be a complete ban on creation of new posts except for Health & Family Welfare Department. In case there is absolute necessity for creation of posts for modernization of administration or effective implementation of development and welfare programmes, the same shall be considered only against abolition of equivalent posts with concurrence of Finance Department.
2. There shall be automatic abolition of redundant posts which have remained vacant for more than 5 years. All the Administrative Departments are to issue formal abolition order by 31st July 2020 and furnish a report to Finance Department and G.A and P.G Department.
3. New engagement of consultants, outsourcing and engagement of retired Government employees shall be restricted and prior concurrence of Finance Department would be required for the purpose.
