No prelims for recruitment to any posts except Group 1: Andhra

0

The Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) on Friday announced that there will be no preliminary examinations for all its recruitments, save for Group 1 selections.

APPSC member S. Salam Babu also announced the application of 10 per cent Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) reservation.

He said that the APPSC has completed appointments for 30 of the 32 notifications it has issued until now, but Group 1 and polytechnic college lecturers’ appointments are currently stuck in the courts.

“With the changes we brought in the written exams and interviews, we will ensure that there will be no objections or errors in the appointments. The state government is completely cooperating with the APPSC in this regard,” Babu said.

Several unemployed youth and unions have made many representations in the past two years for cancelling the preliminary stage of examinations.

Unlike the earlier practice of taking up to 18 months to complete an examination, Babu said that the APPSC will now conduct the exams within three months of notification, follow it up with interviews, and the results in quick succession.

According to Babu, APPSC will issue a notification for filling 1,180 posts in August, which will include the recruitment of forest beat officers, assistant beat officers, assistant engineers and several others.

AP Govt scraps interviews for all APPSC exams including Group 1

0

The Andhra Pradesh government on Saturday took a major decision to abolish conducting interviews for all recruitment exams including Group 1 to be conducted by AP P Public Service Commission (APPSC).

Candidates will be selected for government jobs based on performance in written exams only.

Following the directions of Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy, the secretary of AP General Administration Department (GAD) Shashibhushan Kumar issued orders to this effect on Saturday.

The decision to scrap interviews was taken following complaints and allegations of interview boards favoring certain candidates in final selection by awarding more marks though they secured less marks in written exams.

Jagan said scrapping of interviews will ensure transparency in selection process and check irregularities in the recruitment process.

These orders came into force with immediate effect.

Jagan slams Naidu for anti-farmer attitude

0

Andhra Pradesh Leader of the Opposition and YSR Congress Party chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said the state government is least bothered about farmers’ problems. He critiqued that the government is not as demonstrative towards farmers as it is towards Badminton Player P V Sindhu. He said there is nothing wrong in supporting a sportsperson.

The legislative assembly made an amendment to give special permission for the appointment of Olympic silver medalist Sindhu as sub-collector. Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu on Tuesday announced ace Badminton player Sindhu as Deputy Collector under the AP Public Service Commission (APPSC) Act.

Jagan said farmers are committing suicides as they are not getting fair price. He questioned “why is the government overlooking farmers’ problems?” He further said that so far only Rs 2 crore has been released for Chilli purchase and from Tuesday the government announced holidays to the market yard. The YCP Chief deplored that the state government is least bothered to pay intervention price of Rs 5,000 announced by center to Chilli farmers. Furthermore, he said that the government is discarding the idea of price fixation fund which was proposed to be set up with Rs 5,000 crore. Jagan critiqued the Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu for his anti-farmer behavior.
