Giving a detail of the number of jobs provided, Chowdhury said that some 11,500 jobs have been provided by the current Government. Out of them, 4586 have been recruited with regular pay scale, besides around 1300 under Tripura State Rifles or TSR, 1300 Special Police Officer or SPO and 2150 on contract basis jobs and 2158 through outsourcing.
