While appreciating the chief minister for creation of 43 additional posts of SDC for the efficient functioning of the administration of the state and to accommodate more candidates recommended recently by the MPSC by giving more scope of employment to the youths of both the hills and the valleys of the state, the ATSUM “categorically highlights” the procedure to be adhered to while giving appointment to the recommended candidates without giving rooms for choice and errors or complaints or litigation(s) subsequently.

With the state cabinet in its exclusive cabinet meeting held on February 21, 2023 (as informed by state government’s spokesperson to local media) approving creation of an additional 43 posts of SDC to the pre-notified 48 posts to be recruited through Combined Civil Services Examination 2022, which was conducted after MPSC examination 2016 was declared null and void, the total number of SDC posts increased to 91, the ATSUM also said. Since the posts of SDC was further expanded, distribution of seats for unreserved and reserved categories need to be readjusted and therefore additional 22 seats for UR, 13 seats for ST, 7 seats for OBC and so on are to be added subsequently, the tribal student body also said. Thus, unreserved seat should be expanded beyond Sl. No. 56 up till Sl. No. 78 of the  MPSC recommended merit list, it also stated.

The ATSUM also mentioned that candidates between Sl. No. 57 and Sl. No. 78 of MPSC recommended merit list offered to the posts of SDC under reserved category and MSS/EO under unreserved category has to be adjusted to the unreserved category of SDC post considering the increased of the posts from 48 to 91. As such, after clubbing together of pre notified 48 posts and newly created 43 posts, merit list No.58 (PF Lorho); Sl.No. 59 (Shonjakhup Haokip); SL. No. 60 (Lianminthang Samte); Sl. No 66 (Chinghempou Savio Daimei); and Sl. No. 74 (Teresa Tangpua) who were previously offered in ST category should be in ‘unreserved merit list’ as done in the case of Sl. No.49 ( L Lhunminlal Khongsai) and Sl. No. 55 (K Lunlenmoi Vaiphei), the ATSUM added.
