NOIDA: Grappling with a shortage of experts, Noida Authority has floated six positions for retired government employees under the age of 65.
To manage the city with a population of 6.37 lakh, as per the 2011 census, the authority relies upon a workforce of less than 5,500 employees. Among them, only 960-odd employees are permanent and the remaining are contractual or on the rolls of the vendors associated with the authority.
“We are moving as per the directions of the state government and are looking for retired government employees. For now, six positions have been advertised. The tenure of the individual will last for six months,” said officer on special duty (personnel) Avinash Tripathi.
Authority officials will review the work and contribution of the expert after that and extend the terms of engagement accordingly, said another official.
The selected individual will get a monthly salary of about Rs 50,000.
Though various government departments have been offering extension to competent employees after their superannuation with the government’s nod, it is for the first time a recruitment drive to hire half a dozen former employees has been initiated in Noida. Only employees who have served in government-run corporations, civic bodies or development authorities will be considered for the posts.
While three positions are being offered in the accounts section, three others are up for grabs for supervising civil works, revenue department work (as tehsildar) and horticulture works.
Only individuals under the age of 65 will be considered for the job. The person must also furnish a fitness certificate signed by the chief medical superintendent of a government hospital or the GB Nagar chief medical officer.
The service record and history of the retired employee will be also examined to see if he or she faced any departmental inquiry or action in the past. The authority will post its exact requirement on its web portal in the coming days and shortlist candidates after evaluation.
Ashish Srivastava, retired joint director, UP State Bridge Corporation Limited, told TOI that retired employees have a better understanding and exposure to work within the government set-up. “They also command more respect and have stronger connections than private players. The clause of reviewing their performance after six months will also encourage them to produce better results,” he added.
