After two decades, UT finally decides to fill vacant JE posts
While the neighbouring states have their own staff selection commissions, in the absence of such a body in Chandigarh, the administration has no option but to depend on deputationists for the posts.
Chandigarh Newsline has, in these columns, highlighted the severe shortage of manpower owing to which, work at the UT Estate Office and the UT Engineering Department has been suffering.
Since the UT Engineering is the parent department, initially all the staff including the junior engineers were diverted to other departments such as the UT Estate Office, Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB), among others.
To add to the strength to its field staff , the UT Administration has also been filling up these posts by seeking junior engineers on deputation from Punjab and Haryana. All this is set to change, however, with the UT Administration set to fill the posts through the central staff commission.
Speaking with Chandigarh Newsline, the Advisor to the UT Administrator K K Sharma said: ď We are aware of the shortage of manpower specially in the engineering department. Filling up the vacancies in all the departments for smooth functioning of the administration is our priority. Soon we are going to fill these posts, of JE to start with through central staff commission and we have already written to them
