Revenue department said here today that a a section of media has reported that 1200 retired Patwari/Kanungos were appointed on contract against vacant posts in the Revenue department, which was not factual.

He clarified that only 214 retired Patwari/Kanungos were engaged against the vacant posts as a stopgap arrangement. As many as 1120 Patwari candidates are presently undergoing training and they would be available for posting by the end of August, 2018.

He said the government was sensitive towards public which should not suffer on account of termination of services of engaged retired Patwaris. The Cabinet in the meeting held on 4 January, 2018 had taken a decision in public interest to continue with the services of 214 retired Patwaris/Kanungo till freshly recruited 1120 would be available of posting by the end of August, 2018
