The candidates who have undergone various government recruitment examinations will now be able to check their scores and ranks at a public online portal announced by the government. Through the portal the private companies can take up the data and identify potential employees for their companies.
Department of Electronics and Information Technology along with National Information Centre(NIC) and Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), is working together to put up the online portal. This portal will take data from the various recruiting websites and assemble them in one portal for the benefit of the candidates as well as the employers. The portal was promised by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as he wanted private companies to have a database ready of skilled and eligible candidates to recruit from, in order to make a better ecosystem of employment and cut down the cost of hiring in private domain. As private companies will be able to pick candidates from the portal, the labour market in the country will improve resulting in reducing of unemployment. IIT and IIM scores are presently being used by the private educational institutes to select deserving candidates.
The portal, which was proposed by the NITI Ayog and approved by DoPT, has been named “Integrated Information System for Public Recruitment Agencies” and it would link pages of various recruitment opportunities in one. The home page of the portal would show the details of examination conducted by various recruitment agencies in past one year and date of announcement of final results. The portal would give away personal details of the candidates such as name, date of birth, educational qualification, total marks and the ranking in the exam.
The candidates would be free to either take part in the database or not, and mention it at the time of applying for the post.
