Uttar Pradesh (UP) Chief Minister (CM) Yogi Adityanath has sought information about vacant posts in all government offices and departments and has ordered officials to start filling them.
According to a tweet by UP Chief Minister's Office (CMO), the Chief Minister on Friday (18 September) asked officials to update him about the vacancies in government departments.
CM Yogi has also directed them to begin the recruitment process in the next three months and hand over recruitment letters within six months, the tweet further said.
The decision comes at a time when unemployment problem has risen due to lakhs of migrant workers' return to the state following the coronavirus outbreak in March this year.
The CM took the decision in a meeting with the officials from various recruitment commissions and boards in the state at the Lok Bhavan in Lucknow.
He also told the officials to conduct the recruitment in a transparent manner.
"So far 3 lakh recruitments have been done, similarly start the recruitment process in a transparent manner within the next three months, the appointment letter should be distributed in the next six months," the CM was quoted as saying in a Zee News report.
"Just as UP Lok Seva Commission conducted a transparent and fair recruitment, in a similar fashion the other recruitments should be completed," he added.
