The cabinet approved the appointment of 1500 posts in various departments of the state government
The government has given the green light to a series of crucial initiatives aimed at bolstering development, employment, and public services in North Bengal. The key highlights of the decisions include significant recruitment drives, housing projects, and advancements in healthcare and land administration.
Fire Department Recruitment Gets Nod:
The Cabinet has officially endorsed a proposal to fill approximately 1000 vacant posts in the fire department. The recruitment process, to be conducted through the Public Service Commission, welcomes applicants who have successfully passed the Madhyamik examination. Administrative sources indicate an overall need for around three thousand operators in the fire department, marking a crucial first step in addressing staffing deficiencies.
North Bengal Development Projects:
A substantial portion of the Cabinet meeting was dedicated to addressing the needs of North Bengal, particularly focusing on tea plantation workers and the North Bengal Medical College. Minister Manas Bhuiyan announced the completion of houses under the Cha-Sundari project, with keys handed over to the beneficiaries. A groundbreaking decision involves providing land patta to tea workers, along with 1 lakh 20 thousand rupees to facilitate the construction of their homes.
Health Recruitment Board Initiatives:
In a bid to strengthen healthcare services, the government is creating 29 Medical Officer positions in Homoeopathic Dispensaries under the Health Recruitment Board. This move underscores the commitment to enhancing healthcare accessibility and services.
Land Department to Undergo Digital Transformation:
Recognizing long-standing manpower shortages at various levels of the land department, the government is set to address this issue by creating 427 contract-based 'Data Entry Operator' positions. This initiative aims to streamline and expedite land deed processes through digital means.
Political Significance Ahead of Lok Sabha Polls:
The decision to allocate funds for tea workers in North Bengal is seen as strategically timed, especially considering the region's political significance as a stronghold of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). This move gains prominence as it precedes the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, where allegations of corruption have stalled allocations for the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana.
These comprehensive measures demonstrate the government's commitment to addressing various facets of development, employment, and public welfare. The initiatives, spanning multiple sectors, are poised to make a tangible impact on the socio-economic landscape of North Bengal.North Korean Leader Orders Acceleration of War Preparations Amidst Rising Tensions with the United States
