Sikkim Chief Minister Pawan Chamling has launched “One Family, One Job” scheme in the State on Saturday.
“We are giving appointments for 26 different posts, including chowkidar (guard), maali (gardener), ward attendents in hospitals and other health facilities, village police guards and assistant village librarians,” Chamling said.
The scheme envisions providing employment to one person in the families not having a government job. Under the scheme, all loan debts in the agriculture sector would be revoked.
Currently, 12 government departments are recruiting for Group C and Group D posts.
Chamling kick started the scheme by handing over temporary appointment letters to two beneficiaries from each of the 32 Assembly constituencies of the State during “Rojgar Mela 2019”. In all, 11,772 people have issued appointment letters on Saturday itself.
Earlier, the Sikkim Government also announced that 20,000 youths would immediately be given temporary jobs under the scheme.
The budget allocations have been made for 89 days in the current financial year for paying emoluments to the new recruits, and fresh provisions would be made in the next financial year.
