The state government on Monday agreed to appoint Pourakarmikas, who are currently working on a contract basis, as permanent employees.

The decision was made in the state cabinet after Prime Minister Basavaraj Bommai met the Pourakarmikas who had protested permanent employment. The cabinet has approved the appointment of 11,133 pourakarmikas under a special recruitment program, sources said.

Also, sources said they will be appointed in the monthly salary structure of between £17,000 and £28,890.

Following Mr Bommai’s announcement in the Legislative Assembly last week that new legislation would be introduced to make Kannada compulsory, the Cabinet approved the bill on Monday.

The Cabinet also approved amendments to the Karnataka State Civil Services (Regulation of Transfer of Teachers) Act, 2020, allowing for reciprocal transfers.

Another amendment to the Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board Act to allow for the merger of the SSLC Board with the Pre-University Board was also approved by Cabinet.
