Launch of Recruitment Rules and Vacancy Management System
Hon’ble Punjab Governor and UT Administrator Sh. V.P. Singh Badnore on 6th July 2020 launched “Recruitment Rules and Vacancy Management System” developed by NIC for Personnel Department of Administration, at Raj Bhawan, in the presence of senior U.T. officers.
Secretary Personnel, Sh. S.K. Jha briefed about the features of the system which include allowing the HODs to monitor on their dashboards the information gap related to updation of Recruitment Rules and vacancies, sending automated quarterly alerts to the Branch In-charges to provide the information, online to-and-fro information sharing with Recruitment Agencies and tracking of the joining of officers and officials.
This will help the departments to fill up the vacancies expeditiously and, in turn, provide an opportunity of regular appointments to the youths. Filling up the vacancies will also improve the quality of delivery of administration. It is important to note that because of the decision regarding retirement, larger number of people have retired from the administration. The system will also capture a life cycle of the recruitment process. The system will provide timely reminders to the HODs to take action so that the posts do not lapse after two years of remaining vacant. This will also help the cadre management in various cadres.
Hon’ble Administrator appreciated the efforts of the Personnel Department and NIC to devise a system which will address the key challenges in the current system while providing opportunity of regular appointment to the youths. He wanted the features of the software to be utilised by the HODs by taking a holistic view to streamline the administrative machinery.
