In order to boost hiring, scores of all candidates taking various competitive examinations will be made available online for both public and private sector.
The central government has approved the proposal of Niti Aayog for making available publically scores and ranking of candidates in recruitment examinations through a portal for increasing access of the unemployed to job opportunities, an order issued today by Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said.
The move comes nearly three months after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement in this regard.
“As approved by the government, the candidates will have the option to opt out of the disclosure scheme.
The option of opting out will have to be taken at the time of filing up the application.
“This, thus further indicates that the actual implementation can be done only on those examinations for which the application forms will be invited in future. Seeking option from candidates during the process of conduct of examination may neither be practical nor feasible,” it said.
There are many recruiting agencies like Union Public Service Commission and Staff Selection Commission to select employees for various government jobs including for prestigious Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and Indian Police Service (IPS) among others.
The results of government entrance examinations for engineering and medical colleges are already being used by private colleges for admissions.
