People belonging to the age group between 18 and 40 are eligible to apply. Also, if a candidate has lost their family members due to COVID-19, then they will also get a priority in the selection process. However, this death benefit is only reserved for the General category candidates.
Candidates will be hired on a contractual basis for a year and they will receive a monthly honorarium of Rs 6000/- per month. Full details of the selected candidates will be sent to the Panchayat Administration Committee under the chairmanship of the District Magistrate.

Upon selection, if the services of the candidates are found satisfactory, then their contract is likely to get extended by one more year.
The Panchayat Pradhan will not be able to hire their family members and kins for these posts. The Assistant Panchayat has to be selected from the same category as that of the Gram Panchayat. For example, if the Gram Panchayat belongs to the Scheduled Caste category, then the Assistant Panchayat must also be from the Scheduled Caste category.
