In order to reduce administrative expenses, the recruitment process of new employees in the civil service, four security agencies, teacher service, university service, public institutions, development committees, and organized institutions was stopped.
The government has stopped hiring new staff in all government services to cut administrative costs as the country is in financial crisis due to the Covid-19 outbreak and lockdown. The Council of Ministers has decided to stop the recruitment of new employees in all the organizations, including the government-invested public enterprises, which will receive a salary allowance from the state treasury on April 27.
Civil servants of all three levels of government as well as the Nepal Army, Nepal Police, Armed Police Force, National Investigation Department, Teachers Service, University Service, government-invested public institutions, development committees, and organizations will no longer be allowed to recruit new staff. They have an average of 6,00,000 posts. More than 60,000 people enter these services every year. More than 60,000 posts are vacant due to age, tenure, resignation, or death.
Millions of young people preparing to enter the service have been affected by the ban on recruitment. It is estimated that more than two million people take preparation classes for exams to enter these services. The Public Service Commission estimates that more than 600,000 people take preparatory classes to enter the civil service.
The Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers has written a letter to the Public Service Commission on Sunday requesting to stop the process of filling new posts until further decisions are made.
