Pune, 20th April 2023: After 17 long years, the jail department of Maharashtra is finally set to get a boost in manpower as 2,000 posts will be filled in the coming days. The recruitment process had been halted since 2006, leaving the administration to cope with a shortage of staff.

The shortage of staff has been a major issue for the jail department, as the number of prisoners kept increasing, and posts of officers and employees remained vacant. As a result, the administration was overburdened with work and delays were becoming more common. The Inspector General of Prisons, Amitabh Gupta, had sent a proposal to the government to fill the vacancies in the department. In a recent meeting, the proposal was approved, and the recruitment process will begin soon.

The approved proposal includes recruitment of Group A, Gazetted Group B, Self Assistant, and Non-Gazetted Group B posts. The list of posts to be filled includes one Inspector General of Special Prisons, two Superintendent Central Prisons, seven Psychologists, six Psychiatrists, seven Superintendent District Jails, nine Class Two Medical Officers, two Self Assistant Administration Officers, 26 Class Three Medical Officers, five Office Superintendents, 45 Jail Officers Class One, 116 Jail Officers Class Two, 21 Mixers, 12 Senior Clerks, 21 Clerks, seven Laboratory Technicians, 56 Subhedars, 277 Constables, 1,370 Jail Constables, and 10 Attendants.

This recruitment drive will help reduce the workload on the existing staff and bring the jail administration back on track. The vacancies were causing delays in the daily work, and the new recruits will ensure smooth functioning of the department. With the addition of new staff, the administration will also be able to provide better facilities and care to the prisoners.

The recruitment process will begin soon, and the interested candidates can check the official website of the Maharashtra Prisons Department for further information. This move is expected to provide a ray of hope for the unemployed youth in the state, as well as boost the functioning of the jails in Maharashtra.
