The government has instructed all government departments/state-run undertakings and private organisations/businesses to notify every vacancy to the Generation and Training Department, official sources said on Tuesday.

"This has been done to boost opportunities," a government spokesperson said here.

He said as per Compulsory Notification of Vacancies Act of 1959, it was mandatory for all government/private establishments to notify such vacancies to Exchanges across the state.

He said this practice was not followed religiously and most vacancies not notified to the exchanges.

"A Supreme Court judgment of 1996 made it compulsory for every vacancy to be simultaneously advertised in newspapers and notified to Exchanges. Most employers began advertising in the print media, but stopped notifying the Exchanges.

"Therefore, the state government has instructed all establishments in the government and private sectors to share information/advertisements of all jobs/vacancies in departments/organisations (contractual/outsourcing/regular) with the Joint Director in the office of Director, Generation and Training."
