The Manipur government has ordered to put on hold all the ongoing recruitment processes due to adverse impact of Covid-19 on the state’s economy.
The state personnel and administrative reforms (personnel division) department issued an office memorandum on the new policy decision on Saturday.
“It is ordered that all the ongoing recruitment processes, including daily wage contract employment, muster roll, and direct recruitment, being undertaken by all the departments, including all agencies, societies, undertaking boards, etc under them, shall be put on hold with immediate effect until further orders in view of the adverse impact of Covid-19 on the state’s economy and its precarious financial conditions,” the memorandum signed by state chief secretary Rajesh Kumar said.
“This also includes the written test examination and viva-voce,” it added.
The memorandum stated that any emergency recruitment process would be resumed only with permission from the department of personnel and “the approval of the competent authority”.
