Sub : Unified and transparent recruitment process for filling up vacancies of Group ‘B’ (Non-Gazetted) and below posts in Government of India - regarding.

Sir/Madam,
The Ministry of Home Affairs, GOI, through its letter dated 07.02.2017 has referred to DoPT, GOI, O.M. dated 25.01.2017 which states that of present candidates seeking government jobs has to appear for different examinations where similar eligibility conditions have been prescribed. The multiple recruitment examinations not only burden the candidates but also results in avoidable expenditure in conducting of these examinations by various recruitment agencies. Government is now proposing to introduce common eligibility and to shortlist the candidates for vacancies of Group ‘B’, Non-Gazetted and below posts through computer based online mode test for Tier-1 Examination to be conducted by a multi agency body. There will be common registrations of candidates through National Career Service (NCS) portal. There would be separate common examinations for graduates, 12th pass and 10th pass candidates. The scores obtained by the candidates shall be available to the candidates and individual recruitment agencies. The Tier-1 score shall be valid for one year from date of declaration of the result. Candidates can thereafter apply to various recruitment agencies for appearing in Tier-II examinations. Final selection will be made through specialised Tier-II examination to be conducted by individual recruitment agencies. This would result in savings to the candidates and the Government but also compress the duration of the selection process by half. The MHA has sought details in prescribed format (reproduced below) in respect of all Group ‘B’ (Non-Gazetted) and below level posts, wherever there is ******* of direct recruitment and direct recruitment is not through the SSC/UPSC.

I am directed to request that information may kindly be provided in requisite format latest by 23.02.2017, both in, respect of your department and subordinate offices/organizations under your administrative control, in order to enable this department to compile and forward details/reply to Ministry of Home Affairs, GOI.
Counselors as well as students have also welcomed the move. "Though the issue of common Tier-I exam for SSC and other Govt jobs needs more clarification, even if it is implemented at the Graduate, Inter (10+2) and Class 10th levels, National Career Service (NCS) will certainly put an end to malpractices during the Govt recruitment process.

It is just another move towards strictly implementing the concept of one India, one exam.
