CHANDIGARH: In a promising development, the Punjab government is set to bolster its workforce by recruiting 16,000 new employees across various government departments. This strategic move aims to accelerate administrative functions and alleviate the burden on existing employees. Finance Minister Harpal Singh Cheema confirmed the decision, emphasizing that past administrations had neglected the crucial task of filling vacant positions within departments, boards, and corporations, resulting in a significant disruption of operations. The government is now committed to initiating a comprehensive recruitment process.

Details of the vacant positions have been formally requested from department heads, signifying the administration's proactive approach towards addressing the workforce deficit. Efforts are underway to swiftly fill these vacancies and provide employment opportunities to the youth of the state. Department heads have received directives to furnish a detailed report on vacancies to the office of the Chief Secretary. Upon receipt of this report, the Chief Secretary's department and the board will convene a joint meeting with top officials from various corporations to streamline the recruitment process.
