Now, scores of Central government exams will be available online
Candidates taking various examinations for recruitment into Central government will now be able to access their scores and rankings through a dedicated portal, with the government approving a proposal of Niti Aayog in this regard.
The detailed results will be available for public viewing, unless the candidate concerned has opted out of the disclosure scheme at the time of filing of application.
"The government has approved the proposal of Niti Aayog for making available publicly scores and ranking of candidates in recruitment examinations through portal for increasing access of the unemployed to job opportunities...NIC (National Informatics Centre) will develop a website 'Integrated Information System for Public Recruitment Agencies," DoPT said in a communication to Niti Aayog and department of electronics and information technology (DEITy) on Tuesday.
DoPT, as part of the modalities worked out by it for implementing the system suggested by Niti Aayog, has tasked NIC with creating the dedicated portal where the marks and ranking of all those who have appeared for recruitment exams will be uploaded. The integrated website will have links to various recruiting agencies' (UPSC, SSC, etc) own web pages.
The homepages of the recruiting agencies will display details of the recruitment examinations undertaken by them in the past one year and the date of announcement of the final results.
The user can click on the appropriate examination, which will display the search page. Through the search page, one can access display of details of the candidate, along with their rankings and scores in descending order. Other details to be made available include the candidate's name, father/husband's name, date of birth, category (general/SC/ST/OBC/PH/minority), gender, educational qualifications, address and e-mail address.
Stating that candidates may opt out of the public disclosure of their scores, the DoPT order said the option would have to be exercised at the time of filling 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 elaborated.
The integrated web-portal will carry disclaimers saying that the authenticity of the data displayed by the recruiting agency will be its own responsibility. Also, if any other private or public agency undertakes recruitment based on data/information so disclosed, the DoPT/concerned ministry/department will not be responsible for any legal matter emanating from the process.
