Graduates recruitment for state sector halted Featured

The cabinet of ministers that met on June 19 under the chairmanship of president Maithripala Sirisena has decided to halt the recruitment of graduates for employment in the state sector.

That is pending the resolution of a dispute over the granting of cut-off marks.

Certain districts are at a disadvantage due to the change in the cut-off marks in the first stage recruitments as development officers.

The graduates were to be absorbed into the state service on 02 July.

Newspaper advertisements have been published for the second stage recruitments.

The joint graduates union condemns this and asks that graduates be given jobs based on the year of graduation.
