The new state of AP will soon see a new high rise with the number of government jobs. The Andhra Pradesh state government has sanctioned 20,000 open positions across the departments that will be filled in a phase wise manner.
This decision was made yesterday at the Cabinet meeting, when Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and PR Minister P Raghunatha Reddy announced to the press.
“Thousands of government jobs are lying vacant but given the financial constraints faced by the state, we are taking up ‘need-based recruitment’ to fill the vacancies,” said Mr Y Ramakrishnudu, Minister for Finance during the recent Budget session.
The cabinet held a detailed debate over the matter and gave a go sign for closing 20,000 openings. This comes as an addition to the existing permission to fill 12, 358 posts across the administrative, managerial and technical sectors of the government.
The announcement comes as a welcome gesture for the youth seeking employment in the government space. The new secretariat of AP is also being readied as the construction takes up a brisk pace with planning and execution.
