Port Blair
28 Apr 2017

The President, Pradesh Congress Committee, Mr Kuldeep Rai Sharma taking concern  of the age barred unemployed youths met the Chief Secretary, A & N Administration and invited his attention to the   age limit prescribed in the  ‘Vacancy Notice’  published in The Daily Telegram  on 14th April, 2017 by  the  Andaman & Nicobar Administration for conduct of  common recruitment  examination for various  categories of  Group ‘C’ posts in the Pay Band-I with Grade Pay of Rs. 1800/-  lying vacant  in  different departments  of the  administration.
The PCC  President  informed the Chief Secretary that    grievance  of  the  over aged unemployed youth  is  genuine   and  needs  consideration  as  the administration  after a gape nearly  six years  has  taken up  the step to  fill  the vacancies  available  in the different department of administration  by conduct of  a common recruitment  examination.  Mr Sharma opined that   the decision  of   Administration  is an  outcome of  the   failure of various departments to  fill up  the vacant posts despite   publication of vacancy notices  inviting application  for  recruitment.
The Chief Secretary was apprised of the  instances in the past  where  the administration  has considered  giving age relaxation  in respect of  recruitment to the post of  Physical Education Teachers, Staff Nurses etc.  Hence such consideration in age relaxation  may also be extended  for the  present recruitment   drive, Mr Kuldeep added.
