Meanwhile, the government said the merit list is still short of candidates for 430 posts in the PWD and ex-servicemen categories (non-gazetted) due to non-availability of eligible candidates.
Social Welfare and Social Education Minister Tinku Roy on Thursday said, “Posts like pump operators, for divyangjan and ex-servicemen and others could not be filled up due to non-availability of eligible candidates.” Roy added that the viva examinations for the Group D posts in various departments would be conducted at the earliest.
Former education minister Ratan Lal Nath said advertisements to fill up a total of 2,410 Group C posts of which the JRBT recommended 1,980 candidates for the different departments were issued.
On December 1 last year, 2,400 candidates had qualified for various Group C and D posts. The exams were conducted to fill up 2,410 and 2,500 Group C and D posts, respectively.
Sushanta Chowdhury, who served as minister for Information and Cultural Affairs in the previous government, had earlier in April said, “Results of the Group C were announced based on a 1:3 ratio while for Group D, it was 1:6. Declaration of the results were delayed as it was a sub judice matter and the court gave a stay order on the issue. But the officials worked in a transparent way to finally declare the results.”
JRBT, which is a body under the Directorate of Employment Services and Manpower and Planning, is the recommending authority for filling up posts of Lower Division Clerks, Agri Assistants, Junior Operators etc.
