The Andhra Pradesh government appointed over 1.26 lakh employees on Monday, September 30. This is claimed to be the first of its kind in the country in terms of single recruitment drive, under a new governance initiative of Village and Ward Secretariats, to be launched on October 2.

On the occasion, Chief Minister of AP, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said, “Never before were these many permanent government jobs created in one go anywhere in the country and employees recruited in a record time of just two months.”

While over 21 lakh candidates had applied for various posts in these secretariats that would deliver about 500 public services, a total of 19.50 lakh appeared for the written examinations, which took place from September 1 to 8. Of the 1,98,164 candidates qualified in these examinations, 1,26,728 have been given jobs, including 31,640 in urban areas.

The Chief Minister initiated the process of handing over appointment letters to the qualified candidates at a function in Vijayawada.

The village and ward secretariats would become fully functional across the state from December first week. Each secretariat would have 10-12 employees related to departments like panchayat raj and rural development, revenue, medical and health, animal husbandry, power, agriculture and social welfare in rural areas and municipal services in urban areas.

Besides, there would be a woman police and women and child welfare assistant in each secretariat to take care of women protection and counselling. About 500 public services will be delivered through these secretariats with the help of village and ward volunteers. Over 2.8 lakh village and ward volunteers have been appointed for this purpose.

The Chief Minister announced on the occasion that henceforth, recruitment examinations would be conducted every year from January 1 to 31 to fill up vacant government posts in different departments. In all, 11,158 Village Secretariats and 3,786 Ward Secretariats (in urban areas) are proposed to be opened across the state.
