Mr. Channi further said that the job aspirants would be able to focus on a consolidated, single syllabus for their preparation.  ‘It would also reduce the financial burden on the applicants as well as on the state which had to bear the burden for conducting multiple tests. He said that the Punjab Cabinet has also approved a state employment plan for 2020-22 to fill jobs in government departments, boards, corporations and agencies in a phased and time-bound manner.

Rahul Tewari Secretary Employment Generation and Training said that this is the result of continuous efforts of the Punjab Government to ease all the recruitment process by bringing it under one umbrella of Ghar Ghar Rozgar Mission. He said that such more steps would be taken to bring efficiency and transparency in the recruitment for the government posts. A single exam would mean recruitment against a larger number of vacancies at one go which saves time and effort of the government machinery. This would also avoid a situation where a single student gets selected for multiple posts and delays the process of filling up the posts.
