According to PCB officials, many of the permanent posts in the board were lying vacant for the past few years. To fill these vacant posts, many employees were being recruited on a contractual basis. “However, the lack of manpower is being felt now and the decision to open permanent positions for recruitment has begun,” said an official, requesting anonymity.

The proposal by Gaikwad was made during the recent general meeting of the board. When asked, DN Yadav, PCB chief executive officer, said, “As all the rules and regulations of the PCB recruitment are made and implemented from the central level, to make this alteration, the appeal needs to be made to the Centre.”
