Govt Job Recruitment: UP, Haryana Among Few Yet To Discontinue Interview


New Delhi:  Scrapping of interview for recruitment to junior level posts has not been implemented by few States in the country among which Odisha has already taken steps to curb the practice. This was stated by Minister of State for Personnel Jitendra Singh in a written reply to Lok Sabha. '18 states and seven union territories have discontinued the practice, ' he said. "Arunachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Haryana, Mizoram, Tripura, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal are yet to decide about discontinuation of interview in the recruitment on lower-level posts," he further added.

While Sikkim and Meghalaya have not taken any measure for discontinuing the interview process, information regarding the state of Nagaland is not available, added Mr Singh. "Further, it has been informed by the state of Odisha that steps have already been taken to implement scrapping of interview system concerning junior level posts (Group B and C) of all departments," the minister said.

Mr Singh said the primary objective of implementing this decision is to curb corruption in the recruitment of junior level posts. This will also reduce the problems of poor aspirants to a great extent. He also mentioned about the benefits of removing interview as a part of the selection process for junior level posts highlighting the reports of Daman and Diu government. It has benefited the government economically 'by way of savings on account of non-application of travelling allowance or daily allowance and other expenditure involved in calling candidates for interview.'
