A good score in the UPSC Exams can get aspirants’ a private job and the prospective recruiters from the private sector could use this UPSC rank and scores of the candidates (who did not clear the UPSC exam interview round) to identify the quality talent. Everyone is aware of the rigorous selection process of the UPSC to select 5,000 candidates for jobs in the administration, police, etc.
The government coming forward with the disclosure scheme where the scores and ranks of the candidates (who did not clear the exam in the interview round) taking competitive exams will be made available online, which is also a step towards to boost the private sector recruitments. So, private sector recruiters seeking for talent can use these ranks and scores of the candidates obtained in the exams held by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC).
Every year, the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) puts around 10 lakh job aspirants through a rigorous selection process to select 5,000 candidates for jobs in the administration, police, and the armed forces. While for the remaining candidates (roughly around 99.5%) who could not clear the exam in the final interview round, the test scores stand nowhere.
Hence, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi mooted an idea last year i.e. to put the scores of these candidates (who did not clear the exam) online so that prospective recruiters from the private sector could use it to recruit quality talent.
The Union Public Service Commission said that this disclosure scheme will be started for every public recruitment examination from this month. An announcement by the commission said that there shall be an “Opt-out Clause” which shall be applicable for the candidates who qualify for the final stage of the examination. The scores of these candidates will be disclosed along with their contact details which will be made available online through an integrated information system that is being developed. The scores would be valid for one year.
This move is made thinking about the good candidates who would have not cleared the exam just by a few marks and for these candidates, the database could help them to get into a private job, said one of the government officials. This would also help prospective private sector employers who are seeking good quality talent.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi declared that “the government and public sector undertakings conduct various recruitment examinations need to declare the scores of all the candidates”. Till now, the scores in these examinations have been not disclosed by the government and henceforth, the result and the candidates’ information will be made available with the consent of the candidates. This will create a progressive externality.
