This proactive approach aligns with the broader objective of fostering economic stability and uplifting the workforce, ultimately leading to an improved standard of living.

In his message the Chief Minister extended warm congratulations and directed the newly regularised employees and newly appointed employees, to work with utmost sincerity for the state, assuring them that their position during retirement will far surpass their current positions.
