The Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions (Department of Personnel and Training) has proposed to create a special agency to conduct a specific eligibility test (CET). This proposed CET will be the basis for listing candidates for the purpose of appointment to all Group B non-gazetted posts, some Group B Gazetted posts, Group C posts in various Ministries, Departments, Offices of the Government.
Notification of General Eligibility Test 2019 has been released highlighting the salient features of the examination employed by the Ministry. Through this notification, the ministry is also inviting feedback and suggestions from everyone, including the candidates preparing for the government job exam.
To change all the exams, there is a plan for a single examination which is conducted so far according to the number of government recruitment bodies in India for the said posts. This will eliminate the need for job seekers to fill multiple forms or undergo various examinations. Currently, various bodies conduct Tier 1 online exam, Tier 2 objective or descriptive test, and Tier 3 skills test.
If the proposal is approved, the special agency will first conduct the exams that are currently conducted by RRBs that recruit for the Indian Railways, IBPS that do so for various banks, and SSC which Opens gateways to various departments of the government.
The scope of CET will be broad; Individual recruitment agencies can also avail general eligibility test scores. In addition, state governments can enter into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the agency that will conduct the examination to use its score for department recruitment. In addition, the central government can accept its results for recruitment to posts other than those offered through SSC. Private sector companies can also use test scores.
In addition, the CET score will be valid for three years.
Inviting suggestions from all, the ministry states that “comments on the proposal can also be submitted online at asestt-doptgov.in, with comments as the subject of the email written on CET”. The last date for receipt of suggestions is one month from the date of the issue of CET notification.
