THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The state government has issued guidelines to report vacancies through the e-vacancy software of the Public Service Commission. All appointing authorities should create a username and password to upload information on the software.
All departments have been asked to assign an official as administrator-vacancy master user (VMU) to provide assistance to the appointing authority for uploading the details.
The VMU will create the username and password for the appointing authority concerned and provide awareness to the latter on the uploading procedures.
The VMU should undertake the data entry work of government orders prescribing the details of all posts as per the special rules. The scanned image of the order should also be uploaded.
In case of departments with more than one appointing authority, the official who has the right to report the vacancies in the headquarters should be identified and given sanction for uploading.
The proforma should strictly have the digital signature of the appointing authority. Appointing authorities who do not have digital signature should secure it immediately.
Officials who have not received digital signature should send a hard copy of the proforma, duly signed by him or her, to the PSC on the day the vacancy is reported. In such cases, the PSC will record the data on the software and inform the appointing authority.
The government order has said that the appointing authorities in all departments should strictly follow the guidelines and report the vacancies through the e-vacancy software without fail.
