To conduct Common Eligibility Test (CET) for selection to non-gazetted posts in the central government and public sector banks, the Union Cabinet has approved a proposal to set up National Recruitment Agency.
There will be single entrance examination for all non-gazetted posts i.e. Group B and C posts. Candidates who will qualify this test can apply to any recruitment agency for higher level of examination.
“This decision will benefit job seeking youth of the country,” Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said.
The score will be valid for three years during which candidate can apply for jobs in different sectors depending upon his/her aptitude and preferences.
Presently, besides examination fees, candidates have to incur additional expenses for travel, boarding, lodging and other such. A single examination would reduce the financial burden on candidates to a large extent.
