The Uttarakhand government today decided to fill nearly 12000 posts of class-III employees lying vacant at various departments besides recruiting 490 instructors in ITIs for starting market-driven courses.
A decision to this effect was taken during a cabinet meeting presided by Chief Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, Chief Secretary N S Napalchayal told reporters here.
The government made it mandatory for candidates to be registered with local employment exchanges for applying to the class-III posts. The candidates would be asked questions related to local customs, culture and geographical conditions to give preference to locals.
It also decided to introduce eight market-oriented courses in the ITIs. A total of 490 instructors would soon be recruited for this purpose, Napalchayal said.
