The Rajasthan government has made a decision to complete the recruitment for over 10,000 vacant posts of lower department clerks in the Panchayati Raj department, pending going back six years. Main Minister Ashok Gehlot, on Wednesday in a declaration released, said the state has decided to fill the low Department Clerk (LDC) vacancies in the Panchayati Raj department announced in 2013.

The division had invited applications for 19,275 LDC posts in 33 zilla parishads. In the recruitment process, the Panchayati Raj section got given 70 % weightage to the marks in older secondary exam and 30 per cent weightage to the candidate’s earlier work experience. Among those chosen, hardly any were appointed. The Rajasthan High Court, hearing a plea challenging the 30 % weightage to candidate’s work experience, in July 2013 had put a stick to the recruitment process. Later, the high court reduced the weightage to 15 per cent.

A particular leave petition was then filed in the Supreme Courtroom and in November 2016 the apex courtroom accepted condition government’s selling point of maintaining the initial 30 % weightage to work experience. Now, the principle minister has made a decision to complete the recruitment process for the rest of the 10,029 articles.
