Union Minister Jitendra Singh has said that the proposal for establishment of National Recruitment Agency is at an advanced stage. During the launch programme of IAS Civil List 2020, on June 25, Mr Singh said "...when introduced, it will be recorded in the annals of history for providing level playing field to the candidates."

The National Recruitment Agency (NRA) was first proposed by the government in the union budget 2020. The NRA will be an independent, professional, specialist organisation and will conduct an exam, which would be known as the Common Eligibility Test, for selection to government jobs, it had said then.

At present, candidates appear for various exams held under the discretion of the recruiting organizations like UPSC and SSC.

" This places enormous burden on time, effort and cost of young people," Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had said while presenting the budget.

The list has the information of IAS as per batch, cadre state, present posting, pay and allowances, education and superannuation.
