The Telangana State Residential Schools Society Recruitment Board (TSRSSRB) would be recruiting about 5,000 teaching and non-teaching staff to meet the requirements of growing number of residential schools in the State for SCs, STs, BCs, and minorities.

After the State government sanctioned a number of residential schools, including 119 schools for BCs last year, the Telangana State Public Service Commission was given the task of recruiting teachers. Earlier, it used to be the mandate of the District Selection Committees.

But with many going to court over the roster point of reservation and exemption to upper-age limit, the recruitment process could not take off smoothly. With the number of teaching and non-teaching staff posts in the newly-sanctioned residential schools running into about 5,000 this year, the government constituted the TSRSSRB for focused and speedy recruitment.

Senior government officials said it was a norm for the institutions run by the corporations and societies to have separate recruitment boards. Meanwhile, the TSRSSRB has requested Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU) to conduct the recruitment test for 5,000-plus posts in phases. In the first phase, 2,000 posts have been notified. The government wants the recruitment process to be completed in four months, but given the high number of posts, it may take six months. The Tribal Welfare Department has initiated steps to coach and train the tribal candidates to get as many posts as possible in the competitive recruitment test to fill the notified posts of police constables, village revenue officers and teachers.

Given that the government would recruit about 17,000 police constables under various categories, the Tribal Welfare Department wants the three Integrated Tribal Development Agencies in the State to give training – both physical endurance and academic skills – to tribal candidates to secure jobs. The Pre-Examination Training Centres have been set up by the department at Utnoor, Bhadrachalam, Khammam, Eturnagaram and Mahabubabad and one at Gymkhana Grounds in Hyderabad for tribals of plain areas.

About 2,000 tribal candidates would be trained for two months to crack the recruitment test. The department is also providing accommodation for the convenience of outstation candidates at Youth Training Centres in Agency areas.

After the creation of Telangana, the department was able to bestow focused attention on uplifting tribals through better education, health and training to help them secure employment in public and private sectors.
