In a big decision, the Odisha government today announced abolition of contractual recruitment system in the state.
The state cabinet headed by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik took the decision to abolish contractual appointments.
“The contractual recruitment system started in 2013. It was, too, a difficult decision for me. Now our economy has improved significantly. Odisha has created a new identity for itself in the field of development in the country. Last year, we substituted the contractual recruitment posts with initial appointee,” said the Chief Minister.
“Today, I am delighted to announce that the State Cabinet has decided to abolish the contractual system of recruitment permanently. Even today, there are no regular recruitments in many states and they are still continuing with the contractual recruitment system. But in Odisha, the era of contractual recruitment has come to an end. I was waiting for this for this moment. The notification will come out tomorrow,” he said.
More than 57 thousand employees will be benefited. The Government will spend approximately Rupees 1300 crore per annum. This decision brings early Diwali for their family members.
“Today, Odisha is moving ahead with confidence. A strong and empowered Odisha. This is a golden moment in the history of Odisha,” Naveen said.
“In this context, I would like to suggest all the Government employees to work sincerely. Serve the people with commitment. Follow the 5-T initiative of Team work, Technology, Transparency, Time and Transformation diligently while discharging your duty.
Work hard to enhance the image of the Odisha, and play a significant role in the transformation of Odisha, he said.
