Chandigarh, Dec 30 : Kickstarting the process of recruitment to 50,000 government posts in this fiscal, the Punjab Cabinet on Wednesday approved restructuring of 10 departments, paving the way to boost their functional efficacy through fresh hiring and technical upgradation.
The virtual Cabinet meeting, presided over by Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, decided to create new and more relevant posts, where required, in place of the existing non-essential or antiquated ones, many of which had been lying vacant for prolonged periods.
