In its first recruitment drive in over a decade, the Municipal Corporation of Chandigarh has advertised for 172 positions.
The corporation’s most recent recruitment push was in 2010, when it filled positions such as junior engineers (JE), firemen, and sub-divisional engineers (SDE).
According to the publication, the fire department currently has 82 vacancies out of 172 total vacancies. There are 81 vacancies for firefighters and one vacancy for a fire officer. Two SDEs, four JEs, and 41 clerks are among the remaining positions. Sub-inspectors (enforcement department), computer programmers, police officers, data entry operators, and other positions are also available.
The online recruitment process for the Municipal Corporation of Chandigarh (MCC) is scheduled to begin on April 8th. The application window will close on May 3rd, and the application fee must be paid by May 8th.
Various MCC divisions are experiencing severe staffing shortages. More than 55 percent of permanent positions are unfilled.
According to The Tribune, MCC Commissioner KK Yadav confirmed that the vacancies have been advertised and will be filled soon. Another official was quoted in the publication as saying that these positions are being filled so that they do not become vacant. MCC has been recruiting on an outsourcing and contractual basis for the last few years, going back to the 2010 recruitment push.
