The Tamil Nadu Assembly on Friday, passed a Bill to entrust additional functions with the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission (TNPSC), to recruit candidates for certain posts in State-owned Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs), State corporations, statutory boards and authorities.
Finance and Human Resources Management Minister, Palanivel Thiaga Rajan, who introduced the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission (Additional Functions) Act, said professionalism in recruitment for vacancies in these organisations could be maintained through the enactment. “It would also relieve such organisations from the cumbersome work relating to recruitments, and allow more time to concentrate on their core work,” Mr. Thiaga Rajan said.
So far, the TNPSC has conducted recruitment for vacancies in various government departments. There is also a separate recruitment board for the appointment of teachers.
