LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Thursday approved recruitment for one lakh vacancies in various departments across the province.
On the directions of Punjab CM, the recruitment process would be transparent and purely merit-based in accordance with the recruitment policy. Usman Buzdar also ordered to remove bottlenecks in the payment of salaries to ad hoc doctors and directed that there should be no delay in the payment of salaries.

He said in the primary healthcare department, 1200 vacant posts, specialised healthcare 2900, higher education 2600, college teachers’ interns 3500, civil defence 1200, prisons department 4300 and similarly 4800 patwaris’ vacancies will be filled in phases.

Hassan Khawar said that the journey of progress had been started with one lakh jobs and the CM had directed to initiate necessary action to fill in the posts in housing, public health engineering, local government and other various departments.
