I am delighted to learn that the historic decision of the State Government
to create Staff Selection Board (SSB) is taking its full shape through the launch of SSB's maiden website.
I put on record that merit based recruitment process was extremely necessitated in view of the rampant discrepancies and nepotism effected during recruitment processes in various Government Departments. Genuine and meritorious candidates were deprived while those having political and official connections could easily get away with the Government job. This had seriously hampered the self-esteem of the deserving candidates and lowered the faith on Government functioning. Creation of the Staff Selection Board (SSB) then came into fore to offer equal opportunities to unemployed youths across the state in fair and transparent manner.
With this move, recruitment of all Group C posts in the Government departments would be conducted through SSB thereby ensuring transparent and fair recruitment process debarred of political or official influence.
This would also lead to quality education. As recruitment will be on merit basis, parents and youths would take education seriously and thereby improve the education scenario of the State. I am confident that Staff Selection Board will live up to the aspirations of the people and give justice to the assignment for which it has been constituted
My best wishes to SSB in all their endeavours.
