Recruitment for vacant non-cadre posts
THE application from the 35th BCS qualified non-cadre has begun from 20th November. This time, the PSC has formulated a rule that those non-cadres, already recommended in second and first class government jobs, are not eligible to apply for the same posts. We think this is a praise-worthy decision from the Public Service Commission (PSC). Because of this decision, unemployed non-cadre recommended candidates can now hope to get a government job. But concern arises over our hope when we see the responsible authority is turning a deaf ear to replenish vacant positions in public administration.
We came to know through various print and electronic media coverage that almost forty thousand first class non-cadre posts are vacant in various ministries and departments. The PSC wants to fill these positions. This constitutional institution has asked for demand orders from ministries and departments. However, the authorities are reluctant to place requisitions to PSC. Four months have passed since the results of 35th BCS came out. We have came to know that only two ministries the Ministry of Social Welfare and Ministry of Education placed requisition order for only 700 posts. According to the non-cadre recruitment act only 50 per cent of these posts, i.e., 350 will be recruited from 3359 non-cadre qualified candidates. If we deduct 56 per cent of the quotas, only about 170 will get a job from 35th BCS non-cadres on merit quota which is really frustrating for us.
Meanwhile recommended non-cadre candidates are also writing applications to the Prime Minister's office. In a situation like this the Honourable Minister of Public Administration can use his good offices to influence requisitions to PSC from different ministries and departments of the government.
