Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the first Common Eligibility Test (CET) for the recruitment of Non-Technical Group B and C government employees is yet to be conducted. At the same time, this exam is also not likely to be held till the end of this year. This information was given by a senior Union Minister on Tuesday.
Union Minister for Personnel, Pensions and Grievances Jitendra Singh on Tuesday said that the CET will be conducted by the newly formed National Recruitment Agency (NRA) to screen/shortlist candidates for the recruitment of Non-Technical Group B and C government employees. It is noteworthy that the selection for these was earlier done through Staff Selection Commission (SSC), Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) and Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS).
due to corona pandemic CET there is a delay in
Jitendra Singh, on the occasion of the release of the e-book Civil List of IAS Officers-2021, said, “It was started with the personal intervention of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to screen and shortlist candidates for recruitment in Central Government jobs. The unique initiative was supposed to start with the first such exam before the end of this year, but it is likely to get delayed due to the Corona pandemic.”
CET recruitment To easy will make
He said CET will bring “ease of recruitment” for young job aspirants and prove to be a “great boon” for those living in remote areas. He said that, “NRA will be a multi agency body which will conduct common examination for screening and shortlisting of candidates for Group-‘B’ and ‘C’ (Non-Technical) posts,” he added. “The most important feature of this reform is that every district of the country will have at least one examination center which will greatly increase the reach of the candidates living in remote areas.”
Changed the practice of getting the documents verified by a gazetted officer
Singh also spoke of other reforms undertaken by the government since 2014, such as doing away with the practice of verifying documents by a gazetted officer and replacing it with Celt-Attested and careers for Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers.
