Every unemployed tourism youth of the state was eagerly waiting for the advertisement for the posts of district tourism officer (DTO) and tourist information officer (TIO), and while waiting for the advertisement, many have crossed the upper age limit.
After a gap of five years, the APPSC has advertised the post of TIO vide Memo No PSC-R(B)/04/2022, dated 17 June, 2022. But, to our utter surprise, only one post of TIO has been advertised, whereas there are thousands of aspirants and most of the districts are without regular DTO and TIO. Then why has only one post of DTO been advertised?
Advertisement for a single post of TIO is like rubbing salt into the wound of the frustrated unemployed tourism youths. It is a gross injustice to us. When the districts are without tourism officials, why is the government reluctant to fill up the vacancies in the districts? After all, it is a revenue generating department, and it will earn money for the government.
Therefore, unemployed tourism youths appeal to the state government to increase the posts of TIO and advertise the post of DTO in the next cabinet meeting.
