In an event organized by the Services Department on Tuesday, the Lt. Governor handed over 398 appointment letters to newly recruited government servants, who are being appointed in various departments / local bodies / autonomous bodies like the Directorate of Education, Department of Information & Technology, Delhi Transport Corporation, Municipal Corporation of Delhi, New Delhi Municipal Council, Labour Department, Delhi Agricultural Marketing Board, and DJB etc.

Around 150 appointments have been made on compassionate grounds by the Services Department and New Delhi Municipal Corporation. The new appointees include females, Divyangs, and from other reserved categories.

The event marked the fourth consecutive function of its kind, following the previous ones held on 24.02.2023, 19.04.2023, and 30.06.2023. During these occasions, the Lt. Governor distributed approximately 3400 appointment letters. The Chief Secretary, Delhi accompanied by the Heads of different departments, local bodies, and autonomous bodies of the Government of NCT of Delhi, as well as other esteemed guests, graced this event with their presence.

Lt. Governor congratulated the new appointees on behalf of the people of Delhi and informed the audience that ever since taking over the charge in Delhi, he has been stressing permanent appointments against government vacancies instead of ad-hoc and contractual recruitment, underlining that such practices lead to favoritism, corruption, and exploitation of citizens who rightfully deserve a job.

He further informed that among the 149 appointment letters given on compassionate grounds, 103 dependents have been appointed by the Services Department and 46 dependents have been appointed by NDMC.

While addressing the new recruits at Vigyan Bhawan, soon after the distribution of the appointment letters, LG Saxena informed that a further 22,000 vacancies in various Departments/agencies of the Delhi Government / civic bodies will be filled on a permanent basis within the next one and half year.
