Port Blair, Sept. 4: Shri Kuldeep Rai Sharma, President, PCC, in a letter to the Lt. Governor stated that there are total forty one posts of Panchayat Secretaries lying vacant in various Panchayats. Due to non- positioning of Secretaries, the Panchayat Pradhans are facing acute administrative problems to run their respective offices smoothly.

Sharma therefore requested the LG to kindly consider filling up of these vacant posts with the eligible candidates from Employment exchange to enable the local unemployed youths to get employment.
