GREEN FLAG TO NRA (National Recruitment Agency) : Bhavna Gautam
Are you just another Indian student knitting the dreams of acing government exams? If yes, then there is an astounding news for you!
Current BJP led government has taken yet another groundbreaking step by giving green flag to National Recruitment Agency (NRA) to conduct a Common Eligibility test (CET). It will be a common test to screen the candidates for the Group B and C (non-technical) posts of Central government jobs.
The NRA will have representatives from the Ministry of Railways, Ministry of Finance and Department of Financial Services, the SSC, RRB and IBPS. This step is believed to be beneficial to those 2.5 Crore candidates who apply every year for government exams.
Emphasizing on the concept of federalism, the states and the centre shall work together by conducting one single exam. The cabinet also anticipates the participation of private sector in this concept in the near future. Two such exams shall be conducted in a year and there shall be 1000 centers and at least 1 in each district as a relief for the candidates. However, there shall be no change in age bar and fee.
Another bright point is that now the exam shall be conducted in 12 languages which was earlier just 2. Gradually, the number of languages shall be increased. The curriculum for this test would also be common as would be the standard.
Union Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Prakash Javadekar tweeted on Wednesday, “The Union Cabinet led by PM @narendramodi ji today took a revolutionary decision for the youth of New India. A ‘National Recruitment Agency’ for conducting a Common Eligibility Test (CET) has been approved. The historic move will benefit nearly 2.5 crore aspirants every year!!”
PM Narendra Modi tweeted, “The #NationalRecruitmentAgency will prove to be a boon for crores of youngsters. Through the Common Eligibility Test, it will eliminate multiple tests and save precious time as well as resources. This will also be a big boost to transparency.”
We, the youngsters, look forward to the efficient and fair implementation of this concept by the authorities.
