With around 1,536 vacancies for the post of constable and general duty officer under Staff Selection Commission (SSC), the chairman of SSC, N K Raghupathy today expressed dissatisfaction over the large number of vacancies in West Bengal, especially in the border area and Left Wing Extremist areas of the state - Bankura, Purulia, Birbhum and West Midnapore.
The commission recruits constables and Group D staffs in Central Police Force (CPF), Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), Sima Suraksha Bal, Indo-Tibetan Border Police and Assam Rifle.
Ragupathy said in the eastern region of the state, there is a vacancy of around 30 per cent, and the need of the hour is to fill them up, but they are not getting suitable candidates for recruitment.
Officials of SSC also said that for the last three years, the vacancy in the LWE areas of Bengal has increased manifold and to discuss this issue, the SSC chairman met Chief Secretary Sanjoy Mitra today at Writer's Buildings.
