Jaya Inaugurates Employment Offices in Vellore, Tiruvannamalai
Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa inaugurated the newly constructed buildings of the District Employment Exchange Office (DEEO) in Tiruvannamalai and Vellore districts through video conferencing from the secretariat on Wednesday.
The CM also inaugurated the offices of the newly created Anaicut and Natrampalli taluks in Vellore district. The taluk offices would function from the Block Development Office of the respective block.
In Vellore, the building was constructed at Keelmanavoor at a cost of `1.50 crore. On the ground floor of the building, it houses the office of the District Employment Officer, a registration hall and a computer room. A ramp and differently-abled friendly toilets have also been constructed to facilitate the differently-abled candidates coming to the office. On the first floor, three training centres, a record room and the office cabin of the Assistant Director (Training) and three cabins have been constructed.
“The administration sanction for the construction of the DEEO was issued on January 2012. We commenced the construction work in the month of September 2012. The work was completed and the building was handed over to the department in the month of September 2013,” said Executive Engineer (Construction and Maintenance) of Public Works Department, Vellore, S Rajagopalan.
The DEEO had been functioning at Kagithapattarai for several years. The aspirants for government jobs, coming to the office to enrol and update their registration, had been facing a lot of difficulties due to lack of space, said the officials in the department.
Collector of Tiruvannamalai A Gnanasekaran said the DEEO that had been functioning in Gandhi Nagar would be shifted to the new building constructed next to the District Combined Courts Complex in the town within a week. “The building has been constructed at a cost of `1.50 crore with all facilities like ramp and different-abled friendly toilets,” said the Collector.
