The State Level Police Recruitment Board (SLPRB) announced the selection of nearly 5,400 applicants for various positions in several Assam government agencies, including police, on Monday, according to its chairperson and Director General of Police GP Singh.
He said that the recruiting was done on behalf of the Assam Police, the Director General of Civil Defence and the Commandant General of Home Guards, the Assam Police Radio Organisation (APRO), the Fire and Emergency Services (F&ES), the Prison, Excise, and the Forest departments.
“The SLPRB was tasked by various departments with conducting recruitment for 5,730 positions.” “A total of 5,421 candidates were found to be qualified for these positions,” he stated as the results were announced online.
Constable-related employment in APRO and F&ES, graduate-level, HS and HSLC level, and grade IV were among the positions available.
Singh stated that the appointment letters for selected applicants would be accessible online in a few days and that they will begin duty on June 1.
“Some of the selected candidates will be ceremonially handed their appointment letters by the Union Home Minister at a program here,” he said.
He stated that the Board’s recruitment effort for around 300 positions could not be filled owing to a shortage of qualified candidates.
He stated that applicants failed to achieve physical criteria in the majority of the 309 open positions for which the recruitment campaign was conducted.
“I urge those interested in applying to focus on physical fitness as well,” the senior officer stated.
The results of several ministries’ recruitment efforts have been released in recent days, as the Himanta Biswa Sarma-led government approaches one lakh government job figures before of its second-anniversary celebration on May 11.
Approximately 50,000 appointment letters will be presented at the event, which will be addressed by Union Home Minister Amit Shah, to secure nearly one lakh jobs as promised by Sarma prior of the 2021 state Assembly election.
