PSC starts recruitment for senior government posts including 160 joint secretaries, undersecretaries

 KATHMANDU, Oct 14: The Public Service Commission has started the recruitment process of over 160 joint secretaries and undersecretaries toward both technical and non-technical fields.

The commission has resumed the process of recruitment of government employees which was halted nearly six months ago due to the outbreak of coronavirus and subsequent measures to combat Covid-19 pandemic.

After the government recently decided to allow exams to be conducted, the PSC has started the process of the recruitment.

Releasing a public notice on Wednesday, the PSC  announced vacancy for 25 gazetted first class officers (joint secretary level) toward technical field and 15 gazetted first class officers (joint secretary level) toward non-technical field.

According to the PSC notice, the vacancy for 18 joint secretaries is for the administration service, with one each for justice and law, government attorney, foreign and federal parliament, among other services. The technical field recruitment is aimed at filling vacancies for engineering, telecommunication, education and archaeology services, among others.

The PSC has also started the recruitment process to fill the vacancy for 89 gazetted second class officers (under secretary level) toward technical side and 32 toward non-technical fields. Most of the vacancies announced by the PSC toward technical fields are for the judiciary, law and administration services while non-technical field vacancies are mostly for engineering, civil, highway, general mechanic, education and archaeology, among other services.

The PSC has also called the vacancy for nearly 41 posts toward health service 11th level including chief consultant general medicine, health medicine and forensic medicine surgery, among others. Toward ninth level for health service, there are vacancies for 94 posts including consultant nephrologists, physicians, hospital nursing administrator, among others.

The PSC has set November 3 as the deadline to apply for these posts. However, any aspiring candidates for civil service of senior rank official can apply by November 10 by paying double fee for the application. The application fee for the joint-secretary level post has been set Rs 1500 and Rs 1,200 for under-secretary level posts.

The written exams for the joint secretary-level vacancies have been scheduled between December 14 and mid January next year while the exams for under-secretary level staff are set to be held between January 15 and March 5 next year.

According to the PSC, the applications can be filed online via the commission’s online application system and application fees can be paid through electronic payment medium.

Earlier last week, the PSC released standing operating procedures (SOPs) to conduct exams during the pandemic. The PSC’s SOP, however, bars those suffering from the coronavirus disease to appear in the exams.
