Partial modification in Groups A, B and C recruitment procedure

ITANAGAR, 10 Jun: The administrative reforms department has partially modified its earlier memorandum (No OM-54/2006 dated 7 January, 2008) regarding the minimum qualifying marks in the written examination for recruitment to Groups A, B and C posts under the departments/agencies of the state government.

As per a memorandum issued by the administrative reforms department on Friday, “Candidates appearing in any written exam being conducted by the recruiting agency (Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission/Arunachal Pradesh Staff Selection Board) should obtain at least 33 percent marks in each subject to be eligible for viva voce test. However, the existing requirement of obtaining 45 percent marks in aggregate is hereby withdrawn.”

“For appearing in the viva voce test for appointment to Group A and B posts as prescribed, the candidates who obtain at least 33 percent marks in each subject will be called by the selection agency in the ‘ratio’ of 1:3 (three times the number of vacancies) on the basis of merit determined by marks secured in the written examination.”

“In case the number of candidates (who obtain at least 33 percent marks in each paper) is less than three times the number of vacancies, all the candidates securing 33 percent marks in each subject shall be called for appearing in the viva-voce test,” it said.
