Lucknow, Dec 1 - Fulfilling one of the promises, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has decided to appoint over 35,000 safai karamcharis on contractual basis in Municipal bodies with immediate effect. This decision was taken in the state cabinet meeting held today.
A senior official said,''35774 safai karamcharis would be appointed through interview in next fiscal.''
In Municipal Corporations, the appointment would be made by a committee headed by the Municipal Commissioner, while in Nagar Palika a committee headed by ADM will screen candidates, while in Town Area SDM-headed committee will make selections.
“Those people who are working as safai karamchari in gram Sabha and eligible for selection would get preference,” he said.
Chief Minister had made an announcement on November 26, 2013 about the appointment of safai karamcharis in municipal body and this cabinet decision is a manifestation of that announcement.
The government has also decided to do away with written test in recruitment of police constables. The class X and XII pass youth would be appointed through direct interview. However, they will have to pass the physical test.
