The Tamil Nadu Assembly on Friday adopted over 12 Bills including one that entrusts the TN Public Service Commission with the task of recruitment of personnel in public sector undertakings to further open up job opportunities for the rural youth.

A Bill to amend the TN Cooperative Societies Act, 1983 was passed to make visually impaired persons and those unable to write due to any physical disability eligible for being elected or nominated as a member of a board of any registered cooperative society. The TN Public Service Commission (Additional Functions) Bill 2022 entrusts the TNPSC with the task of making recruitment to services under state owned PSUs, state corporations and statutory boards. The Bill was piloted by Minister for Finance, Palanivel Thiaga Rajan. Recruitment to posts in such state owned bodies by the TNPSC would bring in uniformity in the process of selection of candidates and also enable the youth in the rural and remote parts of the state to apply for job openings, the Objects to the Bill said.

Also, it would relieve such organisations from the cumbersome work related to recruitment and allow more time to concentrate on their core work.
