GOA: The government promoted 129 junior engineers (JEs) and technical assistants at the public works department (PWD) to the post of assistant engineers (AEs).
The decision was taken at a Goa Public Service Commission (GPSC) departmental promotion committee meeting. “A total of 98 engineers were promoted in the civil engineering section, and another 31 promoted in the mechanical/electrical engineering section,” said GPSC chairman Jose Manuel Noronha.
He said that to be promoted to AE, a JE has to have at least seven years of regular service, and a technical assistant must have at least three years of service. “This is the first promotion that these engineers have been granted in their careers,” Noronha said. “They have put in more than 25 years of service, and many of them are due to retire within the next two-three years, while some will retire this year.”
