Move aimed at integrating various departmental services on digital platforms
In line with the Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh’s vision to transform Punjab into a digitally empowered state, the Governance Reforms Department has created a state level IT Cadre, with 354 posts of IT Officers to execute various projects such as Digital India under the national e-governance program.
Notably, the applications are being invited from aspiring technocrats to avail this golden opportunity and to be part of state IT cadre. The various posts for which the candidates can apply include Senior System Manager (SSM), System Manager (SM), Assistant Manager (AM) and Technical Assistant (TA).

Disclosing this here today, Additional Chief Secretary, Governance Reforms, Vini Mahajan said that the initiative would go a long way in making Punjab a digitally empowered, knowledge-economy instead of the conventional way of doing business. She further said the IT Cadre would provide impetus to implement enterprise architecture in all Government departments and functionaries in order to facilitate interoperability, besides avoiding duplicity of efforts and wastage of time.
The IT Cadre manpower, Vini Mahajan said, will be made available in all the government departments and help them seamlessly share information with each other on a unified platform being developed by the State Government.
The cadre will, in addition, help departments in the integration of various departmental services on digital platforms like mSewa, Digilocker, Sewa Kendras and GeM/e-Procurement. The newly recruited officials will play a vital role in executing process re-engineering of various State Government Departments and PSUs, besides serving as a backbone for all the digital projects to help in laying a strong foundation for the state’s digital structure, she added.
