Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in a path-breaking move decided to scrap the interview round from the recruitment process in all the non-gazetted posts of Group B, C and D categories. While the group B category is held for non-gazetted jobs, group C is held for clerical jobs and group D for the job of a peon. The decision was taken by the CM at a cabinet meeting that was chaired by Yogi Adityanath. This decision has been taken with the aim to bring transparency in the process of staff selection for government jobs. An official statement issued regarding the same stated that, “Keeping in mind the system followed by the Government of India, it has been decided to end the interview process for the government jobs in all non-gazetted posts of Group B, Group C and Group D,” as reported by news agency PTI. Earlier, the Narendra Modi government had announced end the of the interview for Group D,C and B non-gazetted posts in central government.

The announcement about the jobs in the central government was made by PM Modi as part of efforts to put an end to the menace of corruption in jobs. “The government has completed the entire process to do away with interviews for lower rank jobs. There will be no requirement of the interview for Group D,C and B non-gazetted posts in central government. It will come into effect from January 1, 2016,” Modi had announced this during his monthly Mann Ki Baat program.

According to an India.com report, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) during the 2017 assembly elections had raised questions about the rising unemployment. This happened after the Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party received more than 23 lakh applications, including 250 from Ph.D. holders, for about 360 posts of peon in secretariat in 2015.

Non-gazetted recruitment means those jobs where the promotions and other official business is not issued through gazette and the non gazetted officers are not entitled to a seal and other attestation powers.
