By the way : Recruitment is an issue…

Recruitment-is-an-issueThe Public Enterprises Selection Board (PESB) has an uphill task as there are nearly 150 top ranking vacancies to be filled. The public sector head-hunter is working hard under the Chairmanship of Sanjay Kothari. The way the head-hunters work is becoming demanding day by day; insiders feel that there should be more board members to conduct the interview and select competent professionals. PESB has to fill as many 108 board level positions in a stipulated time-frame. Reportedly, out of these 108 posts, 32 are MD/CMD level posts and 76 are Director level posts. It may be noted that for want of revision and approval of revised criteria for board-level posts, PESB had stopped advertising vacancies after June 10, 2016 and took time till February 27, 2017 to come up with the first advertisement, i.e. for the post of MD, BPRL. Since February 27, PESB has advertised as many as 43 posts including 24 MD/CMD posts. The latest post advertised on March 31, 2017 is of Director (Project & Services) CONCOR. PESB is now busy preparing the ad for 8 more posts of MD/CMD and 52 posts of Director. The paradox in the whole process is that PESB is merely a recommending body; the actual selection is the job of concerned ministry and Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC). Even after the selection of the candidate, the file may be kept in the concerned ministry for months together as the ACC does not find the recommendation appropriate. A case in point is National Mineral Development Corporation where R Sridharan is holding charge as CMD for more than a year now. g
