SAC approves creation of 2000 accounts assistant posts for Panchayats

 

The State Administrative Council (SAC) which met under the chairmanship of Governor, Satya Pal Malik accorded sanction to the creation of 2000 posts of Panchayat Accounts Assistants exclu­sively for strengthening the functioning of democrati­cally elected Panchayat Raj Institutions.

 

The recently amended Panchayati Raj Act envis­ages devolution of powers, funds & functions to the Pan­chayats. As such, the Pan­chayats are due for receiv­ing substantial funding from the Government. Therefore, posting of officials with adequate knowledge of maintenance of accounts and booking expenditure is imperative.

 

 

There are 4483 Panchay­ats across the State. However keeping in view the resource position and to begin with 2000 posts of Accounts Assis­tants are being created who would be given charge of 2-3 Panchayats depending upon the population and geo­graphical distance.

 

The recruitment to these posts shall be done under SRO 202 by SSB through writ­ten test and interview under which selected candidates will receive contractual salary for first five years and thereafter get full regular salary.
