Online registration, e-exams in pipeline
SRINAGAR: The J&K Public Service Commission (PSC) is all set to go hi tech with the state-of-the-art technology being used to cut the gestation periods in selection processes and screenings.
According to Chairman, J&K PSC, Latief-uz-Zaman Deva, the initiative has been taken to overcome the delays caused in the selection processes due to age-old manual system of document checking and eligibility determination and repetition of various processes.
In its move to automate the functioning of the Commission, one time registration of candidates has been introduced wherein the candidature of a candidate shall remain alive after he/ she registered for a job vacancy once all the eligibility conditions are fulfilled.
The candidate would continue to receive system generated job alerts through SMS or email till he or she attains the upper age limit or gets a job.
The Commission has also proposed to introduce online submission/collection of application forms for the posts advertised. This would quicken the process of short listing and screening of candidates considerably which otherwise would take months and even a year or so if the number of candidates applying would be more. Also it would reduce the overall gestation period of selections.
The admit cards and other communications would be sent to candidates electronically with the introduction of e-admit cards and e-summon letters. This way the old method of sending the same through post which would take weeks to reach the candidates would be dispensed with.
The Commission is also proposing conducting various examinations online as is being done by recruiting agencies elsewhere to save time and pace up the selection process.
