THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Cabinet has decided to recommend to the governor to begin Cabinet sessions from September 26. Moreover, it has also been decided to hand over recruitments in the Devaswom board to the PSC.
But, as it will take at least one year for the PSC to prepare special rules and start recruitments, the existing recruitment board will be retained with minor modifications. The amendment bill in this regard will be tabled in the coming Assembly session.
The session’s main goal will be to make sure that a comprehensive budget is passed. As GST bill has been passed in Parliament, the State Assembly will have to pass a resolution, accepting the bill. This will happen in the Assembly session, which will end on November 4.
The Cabinet meeting also decided to allow special financial assistance of Rs 1000 to each Anganwadi worker and helper.
