In the election years the State Government has decided to fill up 20000 posts laying in various department. Most of such posts were left vacant after the retirements and few by way of death or resignation. It was a sort of economy drive but resulted in severe staff shortage and hampering of Government working.
The highest number 2000 post are kept vacant in the Revenue Department causing shortage of Patwari, Revenue Inspectors, Tehsildars.
Besides these 20000 posts the Government has decided to recruit 30-40 thousand teachers but even after it the post of another 40 thousand teachers will remain vacant. Many schools will face the shortage of school teachers and the teaching will be affected for some more years to come.
