The State government will conduct a special recruitment to fill the 7,383 vacancies reserved for Muslims in government service.

The Backward Classes Welfare Committee of the Assembly, which held a sitting here on Thursday, said that measures were being initiated for the special recruitment following recommendations of the panel to the Chief Minister and the Ministers.

“The recruitment will be done in a foolproof manner without leaving any chance for confusion or complaint,” said Kovur Kunhimon, MLA, chairing the sitting.

The panel examined the representations of different community organisations. Abdurahman Randathani and A.K. Chandran, MLAs and District Collector M.C. Mohandas took part in the sitting. The Assembly panel directed the Lead Bank Manager to ensure that nationalised and private banks did not deny loans by raising flimsy technical reasons.


Panel members said that efforts were on to form a separate department for backward communities by expanding the existing cell.

Additional District Magistrate P. Abdurahman, Deputy Collector M.C. Venugopal, Huzoor Sirasthdar V. Ramachandran, and district-level officers of various departments attended the function.
