Presiding over a review meeting of the general administration department, Kumar stressed on the need for expediting recruitment process in government jobs in view of vacancies on key posts in various departments.
    
The BPSC and BSSC should look into the matter and prepare an annual calender to conduct recruitment-related examinations on schedule, Kumar said.
    
The Chief Minister suggested that there was no need for conducting separate written examination for gazetted and non-gazetted posts and the commissions should consider holding one examination for both so that selection could be made on the basis of marks and posts offered on the basis of choice.
    
In order to expeditiously fill in vacancies, the general administration department should seek a list of vacancies from different departments in a time-bound manner and send it to the recruiting commissions for an idea about the number of vacancies while carrying out the examination process, he said.
    
Ideally, all departments should inform the general administration department about the number of vacancies in the same year, Kumar said. On shortage of teachers in universities, he said the departments having more vacant posts should get priority in the recruitment process.
