A decision in this regard was taken in a cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann.The development comes amid opposition parties criticising the AAP government over the law-and-order situation in the state.Sharing details of the Cabinet decisions after the meeting, Finance Minister Harpal Singh Cheema said the state government will recruit youths to the posts of constables and sub-inspectors in the Punjab Police department every year.Cheema said 1,800 constables and 300 sub-inspectors will be recruited every year and asserted that the recruitment process will be completed in the same year.A spokesperson of the chief minister"s office said a fixed schedule will be adopted for publishing advertisements, and conducting and declaring results for these exams every year.Advertisement for the exam will be issued in January, the written exam will be held in May and June, the physical test will be conducted in September and the result will be announced in November every year, said a spokesperson of the chief minister"s office.At the meeting, the Cabinet also gave the green signal to fill up 710 vacant posts of revenue patwaris.This will help in maintaining and updating the new record as well as maintaining old revenue records to facilitate the general public in availing these services in a time-bound manner, the spokesperson said.The Cabinet also gave its approval to amend the relevant section of the North India Canal and Drainage Act, 1873, for recovery of canal or river water charges for non-irrigation use.

Under the new crusher policy, the EMF at the rate of Re 1 per cubic feet is to be charged both from the screening as well as crushing units on the same output, which enhances the input cost.In the larger public interest, it has been decided that if the EMF has already been paid by the screening plant for the quantity that has not been sold in the open market or to the end users directly, the EMF amount will be refunded to the said screening plant unit within two months.The Cabinet also extended relaxation for crusher units to pay their security deposit in three instalments up to a maximum period of six months.
