The Assam government has decided to create as many as 900 new posts in the Public Works Department (PWD) and Public Health Engineering (PHE) Department. 

These new 900 posts will be created by making new circles and divisions under these two departments in various parts of the state.   

The decision was taken during an Assam cabinet meeting held on Thursday in Guwahati. 

The Assam cabinet approved creation of as many as 8 circles, 20 new divisions and 28 sub-divisions across the state.
