There is no interview.
Months before the CGL 2017 issue, candidates of CGL 2016 and CHSL 2015 had complained of not receiving the appointment letters. 10,661 candidates who successfully qualified the exam were allotted posts but then their allotment was put on hold because some of the candidates who were rejected filed a court case claiming that their papers were not checked properly. Later on the Commission came up with a clarification. In its defense, the commission said that it is for the User departments concerned to expedite the issuance of the appointment letters to the nominated candidates.
Regarding the SSC CGL tier 3 exam the Commission is yet to announce the exact date.
