“Promise of the recruitment of 2.3 lakh vacancies annually and mega-DSC exams still to be fulfilled”

According to the job calendar, there were only 36 vacant posts in Groups I and II and none in Groups III and IV. He called for the number of posts in these categories to be increased.
It was assured that a digital library will be set up for every 2,000 households and that the positions thus created will be filled via the DSC. He said that priority should be given to applicants who had completed a library science course and had adequate training in using computers.
Looking for old age relaxation
