The central government has recently decided to make the scores of the government job entrance tests online. This will help aspiring students avail their scores and ranks at a click’s go and they could easily apply to get jobs in the private sector by showing their entrance tests results. Malpractices in the recruitment procedure could also get curbed due to the making of results online.
The Prime Minister of the nation, Narendra Modi had earlier abolished the personal interview round from Group C and D recruitment procedure in government departments and offices in order to curb the malpractices prevailed in the system of recruitment through interviews. But it had left the option for malpractice in the written tests. After making the scores online, this could also get checked.
The National Informatics Centre is developing a website named Integrated Information System for Public Recruitment Agencies, which will be linked to the websites of the recruiting agencies, so that data from their database could be shared with it. According to a DoPT order, “The home page (of these agencies) will display details of recruitment examinations undertaken by them in the past one year and the date of announcement of the final results.” Through the website the users would be able to access details of candidates and their performance along with their marks and ranks in a particular exam. The applicants would have a right to opt themselves out from the database at the time of applying for the post.
The idea was mooted by the PM Narendra Modi in the month of March this year and he had asked NITI Ayog to approve the same from DoPT.
