Malda begins recruitmen­t process of around 1K workers

‘Applicants must be residents of Malda’


Malda has started the process of recruitmen­t of around 1,000 workers in Integrated Child Developmen­t Scheme (ICDS). The government portal to apply online has been open since Friday. The recruitmen­t of ICDS staff in Malda had stopped since 2009 due to legal complicati­ons, including cases in the High Court.

After overcoming all the complicati­ons, the district Social Welfare department of Malda issued a recruitmen­t notificati­on for about 1,000 vacancies. Anindya Sarkar, additional district magistrate (developmen­t) who is in-charge of the concerned department, said: “A large

number of vacancies have been created. We have started the recruitmen­t process and received online applicatio­ns from Friday. Applicatio­ns can be made till March 31 free-of-cost.”

Anganwadi assistants can also apply for promo

tion. About 171 women will be appointed as Anganwadi workers in the district. There are 768 vacancies for Anganwadi Assistant posts. Recruitmen­t for these two posts will be through written and oral tests. Also, about 539 women will be promoted as Anganwadi

workers from the post of assistants.

Nihar Ranjan Ghosh, member of the recruitmen­t committee of the district Social Welfare department and MLA of Chanchal, said: “This recruitmen­t process was closed in Malda for about 14 years. Women who have passed Higher Secondary examinatio­n will get this job opportunit­y. The district administra­tion has already published the notificati­on for this job for women. The age limit for the posts is between 18 and 35 years.

Applicants must be residents of Malda. One can apply only for the vacancies of one’s residentia­l block. This recruitmen­t will be done on the posts of Anganwadi workers and assistants.”
