UP mantris won’t get to pick personal staff | India News


LUCKNOW: The newly appointed ministers of the Yogi Adityanath government will not have the liberty to select the personal staff of their own choice. In the new system approved by the CM office, the selection of the staff has been digitized and ministers will have to choose from a list of candidates randomly sorted through a computer lottery undertaken by the secretariat administration department.
Also, no support staff which has worked with any minister in past five years has been retained in the new list while in a major step towards increasing the participation of women in governance and general administrative work, 20% would be deputed as private secretaries (PS), assistant PS, review officers (RO), and assistant RO with newly appointed ministers.
Sources said that the final list was approved by the CM office. The names of the finally selected persons were coded to make it asexual and caste or religion neutral document from which the ministers are to make their choice. “Therefore, at the time of selection, no minister will be aware who are the persons he is selecting as their staff,” said a source.
