Madhya Pradesh will offer govt. jobs on NRA test scores: Chouhan

It is the first State to take such decision

- Staff Reporter

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that State government jobs would be offered based on marks obtained in the National Recruitmen­t Agency (NRA) test.

“The youth will not be required to take any separate examinatio­n for government jobs in the State. They will get government jobs only on the basis of marks obtained in the test conducted by the NRA,” Mr. Chouhan said on Twitter on Thursday.

The Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved the creation of the NRA to conduct a preliminar­y examinatio­n, the Common Eligibilit­y Test, for recruitmen­t to Group B and C (non-technical) vacancies in the Central government, which have been filled through different examinatio­ns until now.

Mr. Chouhan claimed that the State was the first to take such a decision. “This will make lives of youth comfortabl­e and easy,” he said, while exhorting other States to follow suit to provide relief to the youth.

Earlier, Mr. Chouhan had announced that all State government jobs would be reserved for locals. “Now, there will be relief from unnecessar­y expenditur­e and travel owing to several examinatio­ns,” he said.
