The Rajasthan Cabinet, chaired by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, took several important decisions on Thursday, including promoting tourism in the state and amending the state civil services (absorption of ex-servicemen) rules, among other things. 

The government also approved the proposal for the Rajasthan Homeless Upliftment and Rehabilitation Policy, according to an official statement. 

The cabinet approved the Rajasthan Rural Tourism Scheme-2022, which aims to create job opportunities in the state. 

“With this, the establishment of tourism units and rural guest houses, agricultural tourism units, campaigning sites, and caravan parks in rural areas will generate employment in villages and protect rural handicrafts.” At the same time, domestic and foreign tourists will be able to learn about Rajasthan’s rural culture,” according to the statement. 

In addition, the Rajasthan government approved the Homeless Upliftment and Rehabilitation Policy 2022. 

According to the statement, provisions have been made under the policy to provide terraces with a minimum space of 50 square feet per person, as well as proper privacy and security to special categories of people such as women, the mentally retarded, and the stick. 

“Along with this, the policy includes various provisions such as providing basic necessities such as drinking water, medical facilities, adequate fire safety measures, and running homeless shelters.” The decision will empower the homeless by providing them with education, skills, and employment,” the statement said. 

In addition, the cabinet decided to amend the Rajsthan Civil Services (Absorption of Ex-Servicemen) Rules, 1998. 

“With this, ex-servicemen will be given a horizontal category-wise reservation in state recruitments.” With this amendment, SC/ST ex-servicemen will be given proportionate representation in direct recruitment as a whole. In addition, due representation of general candidates (other than ex-servicemen) from backward classes will be ensured in positions reserved for backward classes,” it added. 

The cabinet also approved the amendment to Schedule-1 of the Rajasthan Computer State and Subordinate Service Rules, 1992. 

According to this, the current provision of 50% direct recruitment and 50% promotion for the position of programmer will be changed to 40% direct recruitment and 60% promotion. This will give serving personnel more opportunities for advancement.
