PUDUCHERRY: The local unit of the Communist Party of India (CPI) has urged the Puducherry government to constitute a staff selection board for direct recruitment to Group B and Group C government posts till a state or joint chapter of the Union Public Service Commission was constituted.

In a memorandum to the Lieutenant Governor, CPI State secretary R Viswanathan said that the Puducherry government should exercise its executive powers to constitute the board  to protect the interests of the general and reserved category of people in the UT.

The National Capital Territory of Delhi, by exercising its executive powers, constituted a staff selection board for sub-ordinate services.

Similarly, a board could be constituted in Puducherry as well, he maintained.

Viswanathan said that the 20 per cent quota for direct recruitment to the post of ‘assistant’ in the administration was open for all India recruitment without any compulsion of knowing local languages.

Though the Constitution of India provides for recruitment of employees and staff by the Joint Public Service Commission, the Puducherry government has not made use of it so far. Instead, it has surrendered its power to the Centre, he added.
