Panaji, Jan 12: The Centre is thinking of directing the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) to expedite recruitment of officers for various central administrative services within three months instead of procrastinating the process for months together so that vacancies are filled up on time.
It is also considering to suggest to the recruiting agencies including the public sector enterprises to conduct campus interviews besides going to tribal areas so that the qualified people belonging to the SC/ST/OBCs and other weaker sections are given jobs. Talking to newspersons here today, Chairman Parliamentary Standing Committee on Personnel, Public Grievances, law and Justice Dr E M Sudarsana Natchiappan said that the recruiting organisations should also think of finding more avenues of promotions and increments so that people are ''retained'' in the government services.
It was found during enquiries that these people had been migrating to private sector jobs with no incentives of promotions and increments found with the Central government jobs, he said.
The committee had, in its sitting in Goa for the past two days, interacted with various public sector enterprises like the MPT, MMTC, GSL and Konkan Railway Corporation. It had its sittings earlier in Hyderabad and Mumbai to discuss implementation of job reservations to various categories of peoples.
The committee regretted that some of the PSEs failed to fill the vacancies which ranged from 95 to 100 per cent for want of qualified candidates.
The committee had also directed the organisations to create suitable jobs for the physically challenged, particularly the blind so that the vacancies are filled up.
It had also directed the central organisations to consider waiving of application fee under the Right to Information Act for disseminating information to the public. This could avoid litigation in courts where cases had been piling up for years together.
Mr Nachiappan said the government organisations should update all the information in their websites on a regular basis as part of providing transparent administration under the RTI.
''We expect a day soon when there will be none to file application under the RTI with entire information made available on respective organisational websites,'' he said. ''We have to sensitise all the 108 government departments and 500 public sector enterprises in this direction,'' he said. The 10-member committee was likely to submit its first report of recommendations to Parliament in July on these and other related issues, he added.
