About 2,500 licensed surveyors in Andhra Pradesh are at their wits’ finish as they’ve misplaced their livelihood with the appointment of 11,158 Village and Ward Survey Assistants in the course of the current recruitment drive by the State authorities.
Licensed Surveyors M. Subahan and E. Prasad Babu informed Bharat.One that every one their doorways to symbolize the matter to the State authorities had been now closed because the Survey Assistants had joined service. “We had asked the Revenue Minister Pilli Subhas Chandrabose to consider our case for appointment as Survey Assistant, but we were asked to write the examination and only eight of us got through the written test,” mentioned Mr. Prasad Babu. This he mentioned was like robbing Peter to pay Paul.
“While the State government gave us training in land survey for 15 days at Kakinada at its cost six years ago and allowed us to practice, it is taking away our authority at one go,” they mentioned. “During his padayatra,Y.S. Jagan had promised to do justice to us by considering us in regular appointments, but we have been rendered jobless meting out injustice of the highest order,” Mr. Subahan mentioned.
Within the district, there have been 180 licensed surveyors and they didn’t have sufficient work. And now there have been 896 of them within the district beneath 63 mandal-level authorities surveyors, they mentioned, and questioned as to what productive work might they do to justify their salaries. The licensed surveyors demanded that the State authorities present an alternate for them.
