Defence Minister approves proposal of E-in-C of MES for optimisation of over 9,300 posts in basic & industrial workforce

@rajnathsingh
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has approved proposal of Engineer-in-Chief of Military Engineering Services for optimisation of more than 9,300 posts in basic and industrial workforce. 

It is in line with the recommendations of the Committee of Experts, headed by Lt General (Retd) DB Shekatkar. 

The Committee had recommended measures to enhance combat capability and rebalance defence expenditure of the Armed Forces.
 
One of the recommendations made by the Committee was to restructure the civilian workforce in a manner that the work of MES could be partly done by departmentally employed staff and other works could be outsourced.
   
The proposal of abolition of 9,304 posts in MES out of the total 13,157 vacancies of the Basic and Industrial staff has been approved by Raksha Mantri. 

The recommendation was aimed at making MES an effective organisation with a leaner workforce, well equipped to handle complex issues in the emerging scenario in an efficient and cost effective manner.
