  • Mr. Manohar Lal said that by organizing written examination for the class-III employees recruited in Haryana Civil Service who are nominated by special powers of the Chief Minister, he has ended this practice and last year recruitment of these employees was done through written examination. He said that likewise, every year a name from non-HCS category is sent by the states to the Union Service Commission for IAS. We have also ended this tradition and have started conducting written examination for the same.
  • “An employee recruited on merit always works with the spirit of public service and the employee hired by giving bribe and has back door entry always keeps looking for ways of doing corruption,” asserted Mr. Manohar Lal.
  • He said that similarly the transfer process of employees, which was another way of corruption, has also been closed and is shifted to online medium. Even though we have had to face political contradiction with our own people for all these reforms, but we have remained committed and the result is that the youth of Haryana is not only appointed at prominent positions in government sectors but in private sector too, said Mr. Manohar Lal.
