32 lakh apply for 32,000 Maharashtra go nment jobs
MUMBAI: The steady stream of applications for go nment jobs has turned into a flood, with the state’s mega recruitment drive attracting 32 lakh applicants for 31,888 vacancies since January. It roughly translates into a mind-boggling 100 aspirants for each post.
A third of the applicants —11.2 lakh—is seeking one of the 13,514 vacant posts in the rural development department. But the toughest competition seems to be for the 729 vacancies for livestock supervisors and attendants in the animal husbandry department, with 452 applicants vying for each post. It has received 3.3 lakh applications.
The 31,888 vacancies across 13 departments are mainly for grade III and IV employees for departments including fisheries, agriculture, public works, animal husbandry, forest department, finance department, soil and water conservation departments and rural development.
Go nment jobs considered ‘safe’, thus a flood of applications
Close on the heels of the rush for the animal husbandry department jobs is that for forest guards, with 448 applicants for each vacancy. The forest department had advertised 900 vacancies and received 4 lakh applications.
Other departments also received applications running into lakhs. The revenue department got 5.6 lakh applications for 1,802 posts of tthis or revenue offi als. The public health department received 4.2 lakh applications for 5,778 posts. The finance department received 1.74 lakh applications for 932 posts, including account clerk, audit clerk and junior accountant.
The demand for go nment jobs remains high because they are viewed as safe jobs with little fear of retrenchment. “Go nment jobs also provide wage employment and good sries especially after the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission,” said TISS Labour Studies professor Bino Paul. Go nment jobs also provide post-retirement benefits, including pension and gratuity, which may not be available in private sector employment, he pointed out.
