The central government has approved an amount of Rs 1517.57 crore for the National Recruitment Agency.

Two and a half million youth will be able to take the government job test. This exam will be for the posts of 'B' and 'C' group.
The benefit of this preliminary examination will be that applicants who score well in it will automatically become eligible for other examinations of the same group. The result of the examination that the National Recruitment Agency will take, will be valid for three years. For three years, a candidate will not have to take the preliminary examination again to take a job in the said group.
There are many problems in the current examination system
The banking sector has also made separate rules for its recruitment. There has been a lack of standards set in the recruitment process of these institutions. Women and men applicants, especially in railway and banking sector jobs, had to face a lot of problems.
Eligible women from rural areas could not give the test even if they wanted to. If the examination center is several hundred km away, they had to think many times. Who will go with, where will stay. There were many such questions which finally led the family to the conclusion that Quit giving the exam next time.
117 special centers will be set up
SSC, Railway Recruitment Board and Institute of Banking Personal Selection, the preliminary examination of the three will be simultaneously. The criteria for preliminary examination of the three agencies will also remain the same. Tests will be possible in different languages. In the present system, applicants are allotted the examination center at a great distance from their home. For example, a Punjab candidate goes to West Bengal or Mumbai to take the exam.
In such a situation, they have to face many problems. The NRA will set up examination centers in more than 700 districts of the country. The central government has a sufficient number of computer and technical staff. In central government, 1.25 lakh posts of 'B' and 'C' groups are recruited. Over 2.5 crore applicants appear in these examinations. Fifty such recruitment exams are held every year.
The recruitment process takes one and a half to two years to complete. There are many exams that take even four years. If there is a problem of corruption or corruption in any examination, then it is investigated. In such a situation, the entire recruitment process hangs. If the case goes to court, there is a delay in the result.
The applicant can take the preliminary examination of several exams simultaneously.
In the current system, it happens many times that two exams are held on the same day. The examination centers of both are also far away. In such a case, the applicant has to leave an examination. Now one day there will be only one exam. The score received by the applicant will be valid for three years.
CET will recognize the best score through its system. The National Recruitment Agency will have a general registration portal. There will be question paper bank, central server, test center, test nodes and score board. With the safe examination system and quick results, many problems of the applicants will be eliminated. The possibility of paper leaks in this examination system will be completely eliminated.
