Ranchi: The Jharkhand government on Friday approved the proposal for declaring all 24 districts drought-hit. Earlier, Chief Minister Arjun Munda had declared only six districts as drought-hit.

Cabinet Secretary NN Pandey said, “The deficient rainfall this monsoon has severely affected the agriculture, therefore, the state government has declared all district as drought-hit.”  The decision was taken during the Cabinet meet, chaired by Chief Minsiter Arjun Munda.

The state Cabinet also decided to revoke the suspension of 19 Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC) officers, who were suspended during the Presidential rule in 2010.

The Cabinet also decided to bring Trade Tax (Pesha Tax) into effect.

Meanwhile, the Cabinet further gave its nod to amend Primary Teacher Recruitment Manual. After the amendments, it will become mandatory for teachers to clear Teachers Eligibility Teat (TET).
