Qualification not defined: More than 500 posts unoccupied
Kannur: More than 500 posts in cooperative banks remains unoccupied as the qualification to these jobs are not properly defined. The confusion in the notifications also adds to this. System supervisor and Data entry operator posts in these banks are facing this issue.
The appointments to these posts were undertaken by the cooperative exam board. Even though the syllabus for this exam is fixed, the qualification is not yet determined. Hence, many primary banks are unable to appoint to these posts.
It was in December 2003 that the appointments to the primary cooperative institutions were handed to the cooperative exam board. The appointments to the Primary cooperative banks, Primary Agricultural Rural Development Banks, Housing Co-operative Societies were given. It contains the posts of supervisory categories above the posts of peon and watchman in more than 2100 institutions.
As there is dilemma existing on whether the data entry operator and the system supervisor posts belong to the supervisory categories, the appointments to these posts were done by the administrative authorities themselves mainly through receiving money and politics.
In February 2016, the appointments were handed to cooperative exam board, but no appointments were carried out until now.
According to the authorities there are two orders at present defining the qualification to system supervisor post. The data entry operator qualification is not defined yet.
Letters have been submitted to the government to clarify these qualifications but no action have been taken on this.
