AP Govt. to Fill 560 Grade 2 Supervisors Posts
976 Grade – 2 Supervisor posts ..
The government has decided to give promotions to the anganwadi workers for the first time since the partition of the state and the 560 vacant posts of Extension Officers (EO) Grade – 2 (Supervisors) will be filled up. In fact, there are 976 Grade-2 Supervisor posts sanctioned in the state. 416 posts of them have been recruited in the past. The remaining posts will be filled by giving promotions to Anganwadi workers. A notification will be issued next March.
The government is strengthening the Anganwadis providing special services to women and children in the state. CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has taken many steps for the benefit of Anganwadi workers and supervisors who are doing their part on behalf of the government. With the coming of the YSSRCP government, Grade-2 Supervisors were promoted to Grade-1 Supervisors, Grade-1 Supervisors to CDPOs and CDPOs to APOs. We are now promoting Anganwadi workers as Grade-2 Supervisors. The previous government completely ignored them. The government has raised the age limit for promotions of Anganwadi workers from 45 to 50 years.

We will transparently process the promotion of Anganwadi Workers as Supervisors. They were last promoted in 2013. There has been a demand since then to fill the vacancies with eligible Anganwadi workers. The government considered their request positively and approved the promotions. The notification will be issued in March. This process is done by APPSC.
