Doctor and engineer aspirants in Bihar will no more have to give written test or interview as Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi Saturday said that the appointment of doctors and engineers in the state will be done on “marks basis” alone. Around 7,000 posts of engineers are lying vacant in different departments of road construction, rural works, water resources, minor irrigation in the state, Modi said.
“The appointment of doctors and engineers will be done on ‘marks basis’ through Bihar Technical Service Commission in the state. No written test or interview will be conducted for carrying out appointment of doctors and engineers in the state,” the DCM said.
Modi was addressing “Engineers Day” function on 157th birth anniversary of Bharat Ratna M Vishveshwaraiya organised by the Bihar Engineering Service Association (BESA) in Patna.
Those appointed on contracts do not have to get their renewal done every year, till the regular appointments are completed, the deputy CM said.
Out of the 7,000 posts of engineers, around 2000 posts have been filled through contractual appointments as regular recruitments are taking time, he said.
Contractual employees will also get facilities on par with regular employees like - earned leave, casual leave and maternity leave and other facilities. They will get the benefit of work experience and age relaxation in regular appointment, Modi said.
Also, students passing from engineering and medical colleges of Bihar will get 50 per cent reservation in the appointments. The recruitment process is getting delayed by Bihar Public Service Commission (BPSC) due to heavy requisition to it, the Dy CM said.
The state government has set up the Bihar Technical Service Commission to expedite the appointment process like it did in case of appointment of university teachers and police by setting up separate commissions, he added.
