The probationary officers have been appointed as Supernumerary Assistant Collectors for field training in the districts of Banaskantha, Bhavnagar, Kutch, Panchmahal, Valsad, Narmada, and Navsari.

Chief Minister Patel highlighted the “privilege of serving in high positions in Gujarat”, as he urged them to “embrace this opportunity to work with a sense of duty and service, striving to earn a place in the hearts of the people".

During the meeting, the officers shared details of their academic careers and recounted their experiences during training with the Chief Minister.
