Port Blair, June 6: The Directorate of Social Welfare had notified vacancy for filling up of 9 posts of Mukhya Sevikas out of which 6 were on regular basis and 3 on contractual basis as three Mukhya Sevikas of this Department were on deputation to Tribal Welfare Department.
Consequent on reporting back to this Department by the 03 Mukhya Sevikas, the vacancy position has been reduced. Concurrently the Ministry of Women & Child Development vide DO No. JS (RK) MoWCD/2019 dated 27/03/2019 has also reduced the total number of sanctioned post for this UT from 31 to 28.
Accordingly the vacancy to be filled now has been reduced to 03 instead of 09 notified earlier. The intention of the department is very clear and the curtailment in the vacancy has arisen due to GOI’s decision as well as repatriations of 03 Mukhya Sevikas to the parent department.
The Department of Social Welfare will now be filling up only 3 posts of Mukhya Sevika 1 in OBC Category and 2 in General Category, a communication from the Director (Social Welfare) said.
