The state government has decided to create a new post of Social Management Specialist in State Project Implementation Unit (SPIU), National Cyclone Risk Mitigation Project (NCRMP) in the revenue (disaster management) department.
The post was to be filled either on deputation from Environment Protection Training and Research Institute (EPTRI) or on contract basis.
Since there are no officers left in the EPTRI to be deputed, it was decided to fill the post on contact basis.
A selection committee headed by the commissioner of disaster management has been constituted.
The appointment will be made for a term of one year and the first meeting of the committee will be held on May 27.
Meanwhile, the government has also issued orders creating 187 posts of child development project officers (CDPOs) on regular basis in the department of women, children, disabled and senior citizens welfare.
