Families of political violence victims to get a job in Tripura

Tripura, Dec 25: Tripura will provide a government job to one of the members of each of the families who lost their lives in political violence since March 2018. The news has been shared by the state law minister Ratan Lal Nath. The families have been petitioning the government for jobs.

The state government constituted a Nath-led six-member committee on December 22 to scrutinize the applications received for the jobs. The committee scrutinized 10 applications at its first meeting on Thursday and found seven of them eligible. But it recommended jobs for six as one of the eligible applicants was found lacking the requisite educational qualification.

Nath said the state Cabinet will consider giving the ineligible candidate financial assistance or relaxation in educational qualification.

After forming the government in 2018, we received many applications for government job from these families throughout Tripura,” Nath said.

He said that the jobseekers would need to fulfil required educational qualification criteria.
