A high-level committee set up by the state government to look into the recruitment process of APPSC is most likely to come up with a final decision on the matter within the next couple of months. Officials of the commission had recommended a regular time-bound conduct of examinations for speeding up the recruitment process.
Secretary, APPSC, Poonam Malakondaiah said that that the commission has put forward the recommendations to reduce controversies regarding appointments. "Under the present circumstances, it is taking almost four years to complete the recruitment process. For instance, the interviews for Group-I posts, which were notified in 2008, are being conducted this year ," said Malakondaiah.
