The Tripura government has made it mandatory for all applicants to possess a Permanent Resident Certificate (PRC) while applying for any job under the state government as part of direct recruitment. This provision has been inserted anew to the recruitment for service rules for all posts in the categories of A,B,C,and D under the administrative control of the state government.

The notification was issued by the under secretary to the Tripura government J.Datta on behalf of the governor Satyadeo Narayan Arya. The notification states that “Permanent Resident Certificate of Tripura (PRTC) would be required while applying for jobs by direct recruitment under the state Government, Corporations, Boards , PSUs etc”.

The notification comes into force immediately.

The decision to make PRC mandatory for state government jobs was taken by the state cabinet on July 4 this year. The decision was made in order to keep state’s jobs open for state’s youths and applicants. The previous government had done away with the PRTC requirement in 2018, which had led to a number of outsiders occupying government jobs in the state.

The notification has been welcomed by many people in the state, who believe that it will help to ensure that state government jobs are given to those who are eligible and who have the best interests of the state at heart. However, some people have expressed concern that the notification could discriminate against people who are not originally from Tripura.

The PCC president Asish Kumar Saha has said that keeping the provision for knowledge of local language-either Bengali or ‘Kokborok’-would have served the purpose better. He said that this would have ensured that people who are familiar with the local culture and language are given preference for government jobs.

The notification has also been criticized by some people who believe that it is unnecessary and that it will make it more difficult for people from outside the state to find jobs in Tripura. They argue that the state government should focus on creating more jobs, rather than making it more difficult for people to get them.

The decision to make PRC mandatory for state government jobs is a significant one, and it is likely to be debated for some time to come. It remains to be seen whether the notification will have the desired effect of ensuring that state government jobs are given to those who are eligible and who have the best interests of the state at heart.

Background

The issue of PRC has been a contentious one in Tripura for many years. The previous government had done away with the PRTC requirement in 2018, which had led to a number of outsiders occupying government jobs in the state. This had caused resentment among many people in the state, who felt that outsiders were taking away jobs that should have gone to locals.

The current government has decided to reverse this decision and make PRC mandatory again. This is a significant change, and it is likely to have a major impact on the state government’s hiring practices.

Impact

The impact of the decision to make PRC mandatory is still unclear. However, it is likely to have a number of effects, including:

It will make it more difficult for people from outside the state to get government jobs in Tripura.
It will give locals a better chance of getting government jobs.
It could lead to an increase in the number of people applying for government jobs in Tripura.
It could lead to a decrease in the number of people from outside the state living in Tripura.

The decision to make PRC mandatory for state government jobs is a significant one, and it is likely to have a major impact on the state government’s hiring practices. The impact of the decision is still unclear, but it is likely to benefit locals and make it more difficult for outsiders to get government jobs in Tripura.
