Telangana: Slow job hiring leaves 30 lakh graduates in the lurch

Hyderabad: Recruitment for government jobs in Telangana State is moving at a very slow pace. As per official estimates, there are around 30 lakh graduates in Telangana who are eagerly awaiting recruitment notifications, and have been attending coaching classes in the city and other major towns to crack these exams, an expensive process. 

The TRS government, in the 42 months of its existence, has approved the filling up of 63,153 vacancies, but just 27,874 posts have been filled so far. The TS Public Service Commission (TSPSC), the major recruitment agency, has notified 34,625 posts, but recruitment has been completed only for 5,932.  

After the bifurcation of AP in June 2014, the new Telangana government constituted the TSPSC in August 2014. But the recruitment process was held up for over a year because the government wanted changes in the syllabus, incorporating content related to the Telangana statehood agitation, and the history, culture, arts etc of the newly formed state. The committee constituted to frame the revised syllabus took six months to submit its report.

There were further delays as the government dilly-dallied over determining ‘local status’, to ensure that only natives of Telangana got government jobs and not the large number of AP-natives who became locals of TS by virtue of having studied in schools in Hyderabad for seven years.

At one point, the government even considered stipulating that only those who were natives of TS prior to 1956, when the Telangana region was merged with Andhra region to form AP, should be treated as locals. After lengthy deliberations it was decided not to bring any such changes as it would violate the Presidential Order and lead to legal cases. 

Finally, when the TSPSC started issuing notifications from 2016, it was embroiled in legal issues with petitioners pointing out loopholes with regard to the syllabus, pattern of exams, errors in question papers, announcement of results, merit list etc. The government has been blaming the Opposition parties for blocking recruitments by approaching the courts on one pretext or another.

Deputy chief minister and education minister Kadiam Srihari claimed that, “If not for these cases, we would have met the target of filling 1.08 lakh vacancies by now. Despite all these cases, we could notify over 42,000 vacancies and have filled nearly 30,000 posts so far. We are determined to meet the balance target by August 2018.” 

Information technology minister K.T. Rama Rao, who interacted with job seekers at the City Central Library in Chikkadpally recently, told them, “We too are in a hurry to fill all the vacancies overnight and get your appreciation, blessings and support. But, being in the government, we need to follow certain procedures and norms, which is taking time. I assure you that we will fill up to 3,000 more posts than 1.08 lakh jobs promised before our term expires in 2019.”
