Change in Recruitment Policy for Central government Posts
The Central Government has decided to dispense with interview for all Group ‘C’ and non-gazetted posts of Group ‘B’ category in Central Government.
Staff Selection Commission and Central Ministries/Departments have been instructed on October 5, 2015 and October 9, 2015 to implement these decisions.
If a Department considers interview absolutely necessary for any specific posts, then clearance of Department of Personnel & Training is necessary.
DoP&T will monitor the progress in this regard.
This would promote merit based selection and enhance transparency and objectivity in the selection process.
This was stated by Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office Dr. Jitendra Singh in Lok Sabha today in a written reply to a question by Prof. K.V. Thomas.
