1889 persons remaining in the surveyors PSC rank list ,But govt trying to appoints through employment exchange

PALAKKAD: In spite of more than 1889 persons remaining in the PSC rank list for the post of surveyors (second grade) which is yet to lapse , there is a move by the government to appoint 3,900 persons for the same on a temporary basis from the employment exchange.

The order L3/29372/2011/DE� issued by the Directorate of Employment ,Thiruvananthapuram, dated October 19, 2011 states that there are 3,900 vacancies for the post of Surveyor/Digitalizer in 130 villages in the state under the Directorate of Survey and Land Records. The order states that a list of 11,700 persons be sent from eight districts before October 28,2011 from which the 3,900 vacancies are to be filled. So far only 721 persons have been appointed from the PSC list. The PSC rank list came into effect on November 15, 2008. The list is valid till December 30, 2011.

As per the order, there were vacancies in the districts of Thiruvananthapuram (360), Alappuzha (270), Ernakulam(450), Thrissur (690), Malappuram (270), Kozhikode (600), Kannur (720) and Kasargod (540). Many in the rank list were unable to apply for a new post because of crossing the age limit. Two months ago, the rank holders had met the Chief Minister and got assurances that new appointments would be based on the rank list. Incidentally, at the same time temporary appointments were being made from the employment exchange.

A move to appoint persons from employment exchanges in 2009 was stayed by the Kerala High Court on a petition by the persons who had secured a place in the rank list. The Revenue Department had informed the government that under the Bhoomi Keralam scheme there were insufficient surveyors to resurvey the land and therefore more staff needed to be appointed. It should also be noted that the order is silent on the vacancies for the post of surveyors in the remaining six districts of the State.
