Why is PSU Recruitment through GATE highly popular?

 

There are ample reason why many students run helter-skelter to land a job in a PSU, some of which are listed here, the good and the bad ones both!

  • The shortlisting is through GATE scores and this is perceived to be unbiased as GATE scores can’t be manipulated. PSU Recruitment through GATE 2018 is also expexted to see a high number of applicants on account of this reason.

  • The pay is good and the job stable. For many, the marriage lasts a lifetime, divorced only at the time of retirement. On the downside, it is often seniority not ability that gets rewarded.

  • Most PSUs are slow in implementing new policies and bringing in innovation. So, if you like a dynamic environment, it could turn out to be a dampener. On the brighter side, you could well be the change agent who could change the fortunes of these companies. In fact, if you have the spark and pluck, and are optimistic about the PSU sector is India, it is the time to jump into the ring.

  • The perks in the PSUs are unending, starting from house allowances to health care facilities. Now before you get too far ahead, let us put the brakes! It is your personal equation with your superior that may determine the kinds of perks you enjoy (read foreign trips, extended leaves, et al)

Will GATE scores only be considered for PSU Recruitment through GATE 2018?

 

This is the individual decision of the specific PSU whether they want to hire candidates solely on the basis of GATE score or conduct additional tests. There are some PSUs that use GATE scores only to screen candidates and then conduct group discussions and personal interviews to pick the best candidate. There are some who use the GATE scores directly for recruitment. For example, BSNL didn’t conduct any interview for recruitment for its BSNL JTO Recruitment. On the other hand, NPCIL and KRCL conducts interview for candidates who are shortlisted based on GATE scores.

 

Types of PSUs

 

Based on parameters like listing on Indian Stock Exchange, global presence, annual revenue and income generated, PSUs in India have been classified under the following three heads:

  1. Maharatna PSU’s

  2. Navaratna PSU’s

  3. Mini-ratna PSU’s

What is the Eligibility Criteria for PSU Recruitment through GATE 2018?

 

Candidates seeking jobs at the PSUs must meet the eligibility criteria required for the job, which generally is a valid GATE score in a discipline relevant to the job. The PSU may also specify the minimum pass percentage or CGPA obtained in their degree that has be considered while applying. Some also specify age limits. A medical examination after shortlisting is a must for all candidates before recruitment.

 

How to apply for the PSU Recruitment through GATE 2018?


Some PSUs accept both online and offline applications, while there are others that recommend online applications. In case of an offline application, candidates have to download it, fill it and sent the same along with the specified documents. However, most PSUs announce online applications only.  Candidates applying online are generally required to register, upload requisite documents and fill the application. Some PSUs ask for an application fee to be paid online or through a challan/DD.

 

The GATE Details of the candidates are extremely important and are a pre-requisite to fill the application forms of the respective PSUs. Candidates will be asked to enter their GATE Registration ID which will be available only after the GATE 2018 admit card is announced as it is mentioned in the same.
