Report by Orissadiary correspondent; Bhubaneswar : The Panchayati Raj Department will shortly appoint One Thousand Junior Engineers ( JE) in the state to look after different projects in different Blocks and Panchayats.
As per the information, about 250 lakh projects are managing by 1500 JEs in the state through Panchayati Raj Organisations. So 200 projects are under a JE. It is very difficult to look after all the projects by the JEs.
The state government is facing much trouble to complete the projects in time. In view of the above the proposal of the Panchayati Raj department has been approved by the Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik. After approval of the Finance Department , action will be taken for appointment of one thousand Junior Engineers in the state.
