Centre Proposes Single Exam For Non-gazetted Govt Jobs

The government proposes a single test for the recruitment to all non gazetted posts. Presenting the budget 2020, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that the government intends to introduce major reforms in recruitment to non-gazetted posts in governments and public sector banks.

Explaining the rationale for this, Nirmala Sitharaman said at present the youth have to take several exams for different government posts and this incurs a heavy burden on them as they have to spend considerable time and money on them.

To mitigate the hardship faced by the candidates, the government proposes to form a National Recruitment Agency, which would also be referred to as NRA.

The NRA will be an independent, professional, specialist organisation and will conduct an exam, which would be known as the Common Eligibility Test, for selection to government jobs.

Another major reform proposed by the government is to implement computer based test for selection to government jobs. As of now most government recruitment test are held in computer based mode, though not all. With the implementation of this the old pattern of exam where candidates mark their responses in OMR sheets, will be stopped.
