Gujarat Panchayat Seva Pasandagi Mandal (Gujarat Panchayat Services Selection Board), a recruitment body responsible for filling vacancies in the State government’s Panchayat department, has been handed over to IPS Hasmukh Patel, Additional DGP of Gujarat Police.
Patel successfully and transparently conducted the recruitment process for over 3 lakh aspirants for vacancies in the Police Department last year. He has now been given additional responsibility for GPSSB ahead of a critical recruitment exam involving over 9.15 lakh applicants.
Last year, over 9.5 lakh youths registered to take the exam for the vacant posts of Junior clerks in the Panchayat department. However, due to a leak of paper from a printing press in Hyderabad, the exam had to be cancelled last month, hours before its scheduled time.
Hasmukh Patel, who recently joined the Panchayat recruitment body as its in-charge chief, stated that the State Board exams are scheduled between 14 and 29 March, and thus the postponed exam for Junior Clerks may take place in April. He did, however, clarify that this is only an estimate at this point.
Junior Clerk exam is to be conducted in 100 days and a law is also to be made in near future. So that the incident of paper leak in the examination can be stopped. There is a possibility of a decision regarding this law in the budget session.
After the paper of a junior clerk was leaked in Gujarat, the government has clamped down on the accused. Now IPS Hasmukh Patel has been entrusted with the responsibility of the chairman of the Gujarat Panchayat Service Selection Board.
