BHUBANESWAR: The Odisha Government on Monday moved to an online application system for recruitment of constables. Applicants for the posts of constables in 9 India Reserve Battalion (IRB) can now log on to www.lokseba-odisha.in or http://g2cservices.in/g2c/forms/index.aspx and fill out application forms directly.
The system was unveiled by Chief Secretary AP Padhi here. The Chief Secretary said the system would simplify the recruitment process, expedite it and bring in more accuracy.
Created by Centre for Modernising Government Initiatives (CMGI), it has made use of the Common Application Portal (CAP) which is a public services delivery site as part of the 'Lokseba Adhikara' initiative. If this experiment succeeds, recruitment to other posts would also be carried out through CAP, Home Secretary Asit Tripathy said.
DGP KB Singh said since the State Police conducts recruitment round the year, such an initiative would be handy.
Additional DG B Radhika said receipt of application on the online forum will continue till January 4. Aspirants can also make use of the Common Service Centre. As many as 521 constable posts would be filled up through the online recruitment process. Applicants would get SMS and e-pass.
Since the online system is being launched this year, offline application would also be accepted as an alternative. Candidates can submit their applications in all 17 headquarters except for Police Commissionerate Bhubaneswar-Cuttack.
Special Secretary of GA Department AK Meena, Additional Secretary RS Gopalan, Special Secretary, Home Lalit Das and Coordinator of CMGI Pinaki Mohanty were also present.
