National Recruitment Agency
The Union Cabinet has approved the proposal to set up a National Recruitment Agency. The job of the National Recruitment Agency will be to conduct a Common Eligibility Test for recruitment on various government jobs. In this way, for different government jobs, candidates do not have to apply for many examinations and appear in the examination.
The candidates preparing for the government job will now have to appear in the ‘Common Eligibility Test’ to be conducted only by the National Recruitment Agency. Thus, instead of different agencies for government jobs, the same agency will conduct the examination. There are about 20 agencies in the country that conduct examinations.
It is noteworthy that this decision was taken in the meeting of the Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. According to the information received, initially under its ambit, Railway Recruitment Examination (Railway Jobs), Banks Recruitment Examination (Bank Jobs) and Staff Selection Commission (SSC) will come.
He told that the scores achieved in this examination will be valid for three years. For conducting ‘Common Eligibility Test’, at least one examination center will be set up in every district. Union Minister Jitendra Singh termed this decision as historic and said that initially the examinations of the three agencies will come under the ambit of the National Recruitment Agency.
