TALEIGAO :In a major move, the State government is all set to change its three-decade old Recruitment Rules (RR), making work experience mandatory for government posts.
CM Pramod Sawant announced this while addressing the gathering on the occasion of the inauguration of the Mega Job Fair organized by the Goa Government.
“Minimum 1-year work experience will not be a must for candidates applying for state government jobs. The state government is working towards this. Candidates should have prior experience,” said CM Sawant.
He further said that the state government is now in the process of amending the recruitment rules because now there are a lot of new courses and jobs, and the current recruitment rules have not been changed for the last 30 years.
Sawant said that the government has approved the Goa Staff Selection Commission (Amendment) Bill, 2022, and directed all departments to complete recruitments for posts advertised before January 8, prior to the model code of conduct for the 2022 assembly election, within a year.
“All recruitments in state government will now be done by the staff selection committee.
Sawant said the government will enact a legislation to provide job security to those working on contract in the private sector.
“Many youths are reluctant to apply for jobs available in the private sector and wait for government jobs because of lack of job security. Many youths are ready to work in private sectors, but they want job security,” he added.
He said that government will soon bring a law for the regularisation of services along the lines of legislation enacted by the Government of India and the Gujarat government.
“The government will soon bring an Ordinance to regularise contract jobs in the private sector. Even if any worker is working on a contract basis, the employer will have to provide him/her regular service. Under no circumstances will the government allow the private sector companies to spoil the Human Resources (HR) in the State,” Sawant added.
Sawant also disclosed that the government will sign an agreement of Rs 30 crore with Tata Technologies for the skill development of youth.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister announced that Mega Job Fair will also be held at Margao in the next three looking at the huge response.
