Bhubaneswar, Feb 7: The State Cabinet on Friday approved bringing changes in the existing recruitment rules to pave way for more vacancies for the families of the government employees in the Group D category to ensure they do not suffer due to sudden demise of their breadwinner.

The State Cabinet Friday held their meeting under the chairmanship of the Chief Secretary which approved the change in rules under the   Rehabilitation Assistance Scheme (RAS). It has now been proposed that under the new regime the RAS vacancies will be increased from 10 per cent to 50 per cent in the Group D category.

To achieve the desired result, the Cabinet has planned to frame new array of provisions in Odisha Civil Service (Rehabilitation Assistance) Rules 2020 repealing the Orissa Civil Service (Rehabilitation Assistance) Rules 1990 and subsequent amendments.

The Odisha state government also has decided to undertake a total of five  Rural Piped Water Supply Projects in the Sundargarh district. It has been planned that the projects will be undertaken by Odisha Mineral Bearing Area Development Corporation (OMBADC) with its funding. The objective of the plan is to give safe drinking water to the people in the area.

We are a bunch of like-minded people from the media who came forward to build a niche where important news affecting the people at large could be covered independently. This website has been envisioned to be a one stop centre for stories on different facets of the society which should ideally get space in the media but due to several reasons the mainstream media do not give them ample space. This website is trying to build that void. We are trying to report from the important developments from the eastern India with special focus on Odisha, West Bengal and the North East. This website was founded by some senior, mid and new budding journalists to cater to the needs of consumers of digital media which is unbiased, non dependent on government ads for survival and dare to report on the issues which should get ample space in the media and spark debate and discussions in the society. We have our representatives in New Delhi, Odisha, West Bengal, Chattisgarh and North East to cater to the needs of people from their region which are otherwise shunned by the national media. We have our head office at Bhubaneswar in Odisha
