Gujarat Govt releases GPSC recruitment calendar

The Gujarat Public Service Commission (GPSC) recruitment calendar for the June to December 2019 period was released on Wednesday evening. The commission will recruit 4,617 class I, II and III government employees to various departments.

A government release in this regard announced it was looking at recruiting candidates for 1,493 posts of medical officers, 100 posts in the Gujarat Administrative Service, including municipal chief officers, 273 gynaecologists, 128 anaesthetist, 213 physicians, 191 surgeons, 77 assistant engineers for the roads and building department, 350 assistant engineers for the Narmada and water resources department and 92 agriculture officers, among others. The major thrust of the recruitment effort is focussed on strengthening health infrastructure.

Last month, the state government expressed concern at the lack of specialist doctors in rural areas and promised the Gujarat high court that it was holding special recruitment drives to address the problem. These promises came when a petition was being heard that objected to the government turning away doctors from other states who were seeking to enroll in specialist postgraduate courses even though most seats had remained vacant. “Some departments like Narmada and water resources and the roads and building department need engineers for to the ongoing canal network and road network expansion. These recruitment proposals had been pending for one and a half years,” said a senior official of the general administration department (GAD).
