Government Jobs’s 2016 LDCs UDCs Replaced by Tech Savvy:-
Tech-savvy and multi-tasking Executive Assistants will replace staffs working as Lower and Upper Division Clerks (LDCs and UDCs) in government jobs as part of key administrative reforms decided by the government today,
The move is based on the solicitation of the 6th Central Pay Commission ,which had noticed that multi-skilled Executive Assistants with educational qualifications of a degree from a recognized university and a one-year diploma in computer education should be recruited.
The issue of introduction of Executive Assistants Plan was also designated to 7th CPC for their views.entertainingly, the Commission did not make any solicitation on the introduction of the scheme in its report submitted to the government recently.
The resolution is based on assumptions that secretariat function will gradually become more Information Technology based and reduce support on papers. It will also result in reduced numbers in the personal staff in secretariat.
