Hyderabad: 22 lakh aspirants are going to appear for the examination of the village secretariat posts in Andhra Pradesh. The examinations will be conducted from September 1 to 8. There are 1,26,728 posts notified for the village secretariats across the state. 10 types of posts have been created in every village secretariat including village secretary, village revenue officer, village engineer, etc.
