Thiruvananthapuram: Engineers will be appointed to oversee the public works in local body institutions which will mean employment opportunities for around 10,000 people. Appointments will be for degree, diploma and certificate holders in Civil Engineering. The government had recently decided to appoint Solid Waste Management Engineers in all municipalities.
Though the engineers are employed by contractors under the guidance of the local body institutions, this cost too will be included in the estimate and used in setting the conditions for the tender procedure. Since a large number of public works take place every year under the 1200 local body institutions across the state, they can continue in their work based on their performance.
Degree holders will be registered under Engineer-A title and diploma holders under Engineer-B and certificate holders under Engineer-C. The registration will be done online. They will be paid an equivalent amount paid for similar job titles in various departments of the government. The registration duty is assigned to the superintendent engineers at circle offices in Kozhikode and Thiruvananthapuram. The registration is valid for three years. The performance and skill of the engineers will be considered for registration renewal. Raising the grade of C and B categories of engineers will be done based on their experience.
