Hyderabad: In a major decision, the Telangana state Cabinet on Saturday ratified the government’s proposal to scrap the zonal system in the recruitment of jobs and postings. The government’s decision would be forwarded to the President for approval.
Stating this at a media briefing after a four-hour meeting, Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari said henceforth there will be only two cadres, State and District. All new recruitments would be done accordingly. He said to bring abolition of the zonal system into effect, it is necessary to amend the Article 371(d) with the consent of the President.
In view of this, Kadiam said Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has constituted a committee, headed by Chief Secretary SP Singh, and instructed him to conduct a detailed study on the zonal system.
The Cabinet has also ratified ordinances, which include amendment to ROR (Records of Right) Act and PD (Preventive Detention) Act. Under the ROR Act, the discretionary power given to the sub registrars were revoked to curb the menace of occupation of jagir lands by private agencies.
The objective of the amendment in the PD Act is to award stringent punishment to those who indulge in the supply of spurious seeds and adulteration of essential commodities. The ordinance to amend the Gambling Act is aimed to ban playing cards on online.
The minister said the sheep distribution scheme would be launched by the Chief Minister in his Gajwel Assembly constituency on June 20. On the same day, all the MLAs would take part in the distribution of sheep to the beneficiaries in their respective constituencies. The government would also launch mobile veterinary clinics in July.
