"Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only public health and medical education departments were allowed to carry out the recruitment but had put restrictions on recruitment of all other departments.

As per the government resolutions dated May 4 and June 24, the recruitment process for vacancies in other departments of the state was restricted.

The move came after 24-year-old Swapnil Lonkar, a Maharashtra government job aspirant allegedly committed suicide at his house in Pune's Hadapsar area on June 30.

On July 5, during the two-day monsoon session of the state assembly, Pawar had taken cognisance of Lonkar's suicide and said the posts for which the MPSC exams were completed will be filled up on a priority basis by July 31.
