AMARAVATI: The Andhra Pradesh government which has already recruited candidates for VRV (Grade-2) posts in village and ward secretariats, is now all set to start the recruitment process for 3,795 Gram Revenue Officers (VRO) grade-2 posts in the Revenue Department of the state.
Earlier, the state government has agreed to consider the appeals from all the Village Revenue Assistants (VRA) to promote them as VROs on a one-time basis. Now, the state government has given permission to all the respective district collectors to recruit 3,795 VRO posts with eligible VRAs who have education qualification equivalent to Intermediate.
At the same time, various associations have been appealing for the eligibility to serve as Village Revenue Assistants (VRAs) for many years on a one-time basis. Even though the revenue department has earlier issued orders to this extent, the recruitment was delayed due to technical reasons.
Now, the Revenue Department has issued internal orders to all districts collectors over the eligibility requirements for these posts. Accordingly, Chief Secretary of the Revenue Department, V Usharani, has instructed the Chief Commissioner of State Land Administration to announce the district-wise vacancies and select eligible VRAs on a seniority basis.
Candidates must have minimum qualification of Intermediate or equivalent.
VRAs must have completed five years of service by January 1 of this year
Those who have a degree and PG without studying intermediate are also eligible
Previous orders pertaining to employees having to take prior permission if they wished to study any course will henceforth be not taken into consideration.
On a one-time basis, the government will allow all the eligible VRAs to be selected as VROs.
