The Andhra Pradesh Legislature amends a bill to appoint Olympic silver medallist PV Sindhu as a Group-1 officer in the govt.
This bill has been passed in AP Assembly Special Sessions today with amendments to bestow her with Group 1 job.
The bill Regulation of Appointments to Public Services and Rationalisation of Staff Pattern and Pay Structure) Act, 1994, prevented the appointment of the badminton player as any recruitment in public service should only be through the AP Public Service Commission, selection committee or employment exchange. Thus the government decided to amend section 4 of the act. The Bill was later passed by the Legislative Council as well.
Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu announced to appoint PV Sindhu as the state’s sports ambassador.
