'Few takers from states for Central govt jobs'

Bangalore, Feb 3, 2013, DHNS 0:24 IST
A possible ‘inferiority’ complex, fear of frequent transfers and lack of awareness on payscale are the prime reasons for the dwindling number of applicants each year for the Central government posts, according to the Staff Selection Commission (SSC).

“Despite receiving applications from graduates to multitasking staff (MTS) or clerical posts, there is lack of awareness among people and fear of being posted out of their hometown, inconveniencing the applicants from Karnataka,” said S Gopalan, Regional Director for SSA.

As per the statistics from the SSA, while Karnataka registered 1.54 lakh of the total 90 lakh applicants from across India in 2011-12, this year, the State has shown a dismal performance in registering for the examinations to the SSC.

“In the last 10 days, we have seen a combined application percentage of 3.1 per cent from both Kerala and Karnataka. On any given day, we receive one application from the State as compared to two from Kerala,” said Gopalan.

The SSC believes that the biggest worry for the aspirants is of being posted outside the State. “We have been assuring the applicants that getting a posting in Karnataka is possible after the initial two years. There is always a possibility of having mutual transfers between people who wish to return to their home state,” said the regional director.

On the payscale, the SSC claims that every individual who receives a gross salary, is eligible for PF, Children Education Allowance and the LTA, which is over and above the gross pay. “There appears to be little knowledge on these vital points,” Gopalan added.

The SSC will conduct the two-tier examination on April 14/April 21 and on July 21 this year. The applicants who qualify in the April 14 or April 21 examination will be eligible to appear for the July 21 examination.

The interested can register online through http://ssconline.nic.in or on http://ssconline2.gov.in. The Part-I registration will close on February 13 and the last date for registration for Part II is February 15.
