Additionally, the initiative encompasses personnel working under Consolidated Pay, Centrally Sponsored Schemes, and various projects within the Forest Department, Home Guards, Village Guards, Nurses, ICDS-Anganwadi Workers, helpers, as well as ASHA Workers.

Education Sector Reforms

Within the education sector, the government has established 1948 posts to regularize pre-primary, primary, graduate, and post-graduate teachers. This proactive step not only addresses the stability of employment but also emphasizes the significance of a robust education system.

Commitment to Employee Welfare

Chief Minister Prem Singh Golay, in a statement on social media, highlighted the profound impact of these initiatives on supporting families and bolstering the confidence of regular staff. He emphasized the government’s unwavering commitment to extending support to deprived families and ensuring economic balance and prosperity.

Golay stated, “Our government remains steadfast in its commitment to extending a helping hand to deprived families, enlightening every household with employment opportunities that lead to economic balance and prosperity. It’s our fervent vision that every member of underprivileged families secures a livelihood to support their families.”

The decision to regularize temporary employees who have completed four years of service by December 31, 2023, was announced earlier this month, signaling the government’s proactive stance towards addressing employment challenges.
