Govt asks departments to complete recruitment process within 6 months

After slashing interview for non-gazetted recruitments, the government has directed all departments to complete all direct recruitment process within six months of the closing date of the applications as mentioned in the advertisements. The Centre has prepared draft guidelines for the same.The draft prepared by the Department of Personnel and Training (DOPT) says there was "unduly large" delay in recruitment process undertaken by many central government departments.

"All ministries or departments are, therefore, requested that while initiating the recruitment process to fill vacant posts by the method of direct recruitment in their ministries or departments, they may ensure that the recruitment process i.e., conducting written examination or holding of interviews is completed within six months from the closing date of receipt of applications mentioned in the advertisement," the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has said in draft instructions.

The DoPT noticed that the ministries were taking longer time than required in the direct recruitment for various posts in the Government of India by conducting competitive examinations or interviews. "It is seen that in many cases the time gap between the date of advertisement for the vacancy and date of examination or interview is unduly large and defeats the object of early recruitment process.

"Further, delay of recruitment process by more than a year will deny the opportunity to fresh candidates who become eligible during that year," it said in a note to all central government ministries seeking comments. The DoPT has asked all ministries to send their views on the draft by November 16.
