Jishnu Devvarma said that the government will soon announce new recruitment rules for all departments as a draft has been prepared and is just awaiting government’s approval. He said this will happen soon. “The draft needs to be finalized. I shall see (the proposal), the chief minister too will see,” Devvarma added. The decision should be rational and reasonable and take into consideration the problems of the people, he said. However, a little bit of time will be taken as the the proposal will also be discussed with all the ministers.




Even as this state’s staff is set to soon hear the good news, the same has become elusive at the central government level for the employees. They are waiting for a hike in their pay through a fitment factor of 3.68 times rather than 2.57. The minimum salaries fo staff at the lower level will then rise to Rs 26,000. This decision by the Centre is still hanging fire.
