Yogi Adityanath-led UP government ends interviews for govt job

Yogi Adityanath, who has completed almost five months as Uttar Pradesh chief minister, has been grabbing headlines with a series of decisions ranging from giving 70 lakh jobs and launching Whatsapp number to register cheating complaints to putting UP teachers behind bars if they force students to take coaching.

Now, in a landmark decision, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath-led UP government has decided to end the process of holding interview for selection of candidates for the government jobs in all the non-gazetted posts of Group B, C and D categories.

Here’s what the official statement read:

“Keeping in mind the system followed by the Government of India, it has been decided to end the interview process for the government jobs in all non-gazetted posts of Group B, Group C and Group D,” an official statement said in a recent PTI report.

The decision was taken in a cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

Now, all the aspirants just have to appear for written examination.

As reported by TOI, under the new directive, if any department considers interview mandatory for a certain post, it can send a proposal for the same to the Personnel department, which will make the call.

More on the report:

  • Also, the UP Cabinet has decided to fix the support price of common variety of paddy at Rs 1,550 per quintal and Rs 1,590 per quintal for grade-A paddy
  • Moreover, the boundary of the Aligarh Nagar Nigam will be expanded.

Meanwhile, the Uttar Pradesh Health Minister Siddharth Nath Singh has welcomed the move and said it will put an end to corruption in the country.

Furthermore, the Cabinet also gave its nod to construction of Kailash Mansarovar Bhawan in Ghaziabad to facilitate pilgrims of Kailash Mansarovar Yatra, Sindhu Darshan Yatra and Chaardhaam Yatra, the official statement said.
