(News) Failed in UPSC IAS interview? : You may still get an opportunity to qualify for top government jobs

(News) Failed in UPSC CSE interview? : You may still get an opportunity to qualify for top government jobs


Here is a good news for the UPSC aspirants who qualify for UPSC Personality Test (Interviews). If you are not get into the final list, you may still get a top govt. job.

Qualified for UPSC IAS Interviews (Personality Test) stage?

If you are one among top 2000 brilliant candidates in India, who are called for UPSC IAS Interviews. Here is an opportunity to chase your dream to get selected either government sector or PSUs for senior level positions. 

Highlights of the proposal by Arvind Saxena, UPSC Chairman:

In 21st National Conference of the Chairmen of State Public Service Commission organised in Odisha, Arvind Saxena said:

“We have proposed to the central government and the ministries to recruit people from the list of candidates who make it to the interview stage in civil services and other exams, but fail to get picked up”. 

He also said, 

“Nearly 1.1 million candidates apply for the Civil Services Examination each year. Half of them appear for the preliminary examination. The number of candidates decreases through the examination stages and in the end, only about 600 candidates are selected”. 

He also noted that, Government can consider recruiting from the million candidates who went through the various tough screening process but not recommended for CSE after the last state. This will help to reduce exam stress for aspirants. 
They are not only get an opportunity for selecting government or PSUs but also they could get top private sector job also. 

A 3 year old proposal:

A senior official of the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), the nodal ministry for the UPSC, said the commission’s suggestion was a “welcome recommendation”.


“Some recruitment agencies like the SSC (Staff Selection Commission) and the Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) already have this provision,” the official added

However, the proposal is not new, the official said. “The recommendation was made to us by the UPSC in 2016, and cleared by the Cabinet the same year…

But, the UPSC is figuring out the modalities,” the official added.

“The idea is that the candidates can be considered by a number of government employers since they already have their UPSC marks and ranking,” the official said.

A way to utilize the bright minds for serving nations:

The total vacancies for all civil services like IAS, IPS, IFS etc. in total only less than 1000 every year,(including 50% reservation seats). 

This means over 1 million candidates only 1000 are chosen for final list. Aren’t next topped 500-1000  are capable enough? 

Conclusion:

There is no doubt that the topped 2,000 candidates are almost equally good.It gives an opportunity for those students who have no option left, until next year CSE preliminary exam started if any attempts are available for him.
From private company angle, it saves a lot of time to find best talent in the country. 

 From candidates angle it’s a payback for their merit and hardwork which was unrecognized in the past. 

Good Luck.

Current Public Administration Magazine (SEPTEMBER 2018)


Sample Material of Current Public Administration Magazine

1.  Accountability and Control

Out of my mind: The Sole Reformer

Every week from Tuesday to Saturday, newspaper headlines are dominated by decisions of the Supreme Court. The pace and scale of its activities are more hectic than any time in the decades since Independence. Just this year, same-sex relationships have been decriminalised. Adultery is no longer a crime. Gender-based restrictions have been removed for temple entry (women catching up with Dalits). Sexual harassment, especially rape, is to be punished severely and by death penalty if the victim is a minor. Triple talaq is against the Constitution.
It is as if the only branch of government functioning to change society for better is the Judiciary. The Legislature at the Centre and state levels is frequently disrupted and barren of any new decisions. The Executive at the Centre, especially the Prime Minister, is consumed by electioneering and, after the torrent of activity in the first half of its tenure, is now bogged down in firefighting. Even in something as vital as triple talaq, despite the invitation of the Judiciary, the best the Executive has been able to do in face of a fractious Parliament is to resort to an ordinance.

2. Indian Government and Politics

Know Thy Judge

Judge Brett Kavanaugh has been confirmed as a judge of the US Supreme Court but the process allowed Christine Blasey Ford to publicly recount her trauma of sexual abuse in exercise of what she considered her “civic duty”. We are enriched in our understanding of the people who eventually hold high positions of authority. This is how a democracy functions.

India has no similar process for appointment of judges to the Supreme Court or any other court. We have what we call a “collegium” of the five senior-most judges of the Supreme Court considering names primarily from among chief justices of the high courts and occasionally from the bar for appointment to the Supreme Court. The future chief justices of India will be chosen from a pool of judges in the high courts, who have today put in more than 14 years of service. Those who have or have had a relative in the judiciary have a better chance of making it compared to others. An aspiring law researcher with a little help from Google Analytics will be able to predict who will be the CJI of India in 2039.
