Plea to set up Public Service Commission for Puducherry

Press Trust of India  |  Puducherry 

The French Indian Rights Forum of today urged the union territory government to set up a separate State Public Service Commission to ensure employment opportunities for the local youth.

After submitting a memorandum to Chief Minister in this regard, Chairman of the forum, M Ilango told the media that the delegation had demanded that the administration rescind the UPSC notification issued in March this year for recruitment of 159 Assistant Professors in Arts and Science colleges, run by the territorial government.

He claimed that the recruitment process of UPSC, had been practically depriving the local candidates of the chance for getting placements and postings in the Union Territory.

Candidates who were residents of for the last five years should be considered for posting and the Presidential order issued in 1964 for reservation to SC candidates should also be adhered to, the memorandum said.
