New Delhi, September 21| In a written reply to Loksabha Dr. Jitendra Singh (MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions) stated that National Recruitment Agency is expected to conduct common Eligibility Test from September 2021 onwards.
This is a positive development and students appearing for multiple government exams will have to just write one exam conducted by NRA for the first round of shortlisting.
Government has set up National Recruitment Agency (NRA) vide order dated 28.08.2020, as an independent, professional, specialist organization to conduct computer based online common eligibility test (CET) to shortlist candidates for
- Vacancies of Group ‘B’ Non-Gazetted posts, Group ‘B’ Gazetted posts, which are exempted from consultation with the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC).
- Group ‘C’ posts in the Government and equivalent posts for which similar eligibility conditions have been prescribed.
NRA has been set up with a view to provide the same platform to all candidates at the nearest District HQ and with a view to set a new standard of equity and inclusiveness in recruitment.
NRA will conduct CET to screen/shortlist candidates for jobs in Government sector for which recruitment is presently carried out through the Staff Selection Commission (SSC), Railway Recruitment Boards (RRBs) and Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS).
NRA will conduct only preliminary screening of candidates. The final recruitment will be done through domain specific examinations/tests to be conducted by respective agencies viz. SSC, RRBs and IBPS.
Based on the score obtained in CET conducted by NRA, candidates may appear in domain specific exam/tests to be conducted by respective recruitment agencies.
The foundation of the National Recruitment Agency (NRA) will simplify the recruitment process for government jobs which has a huge traction among the youth for the security they offer. The move will also help put in place a single national exam for all government jobs at a time, when employment or rather the insufficiency of it is a huge argument. (Source PIB)
