What you should know about PSU Recruitment and GATE Scores?

 

Which GATE score will be used for recruitment? PSU Recruitment through GATE announced by each company will specify the GATE score that will be considered. Mostly it is for the current year and in some case the past year. Unlike M.Tech admissions GATE scores for PSU recruitment will not be valid for three years.

 

Are GATE scores the only factor considered for PSU Recruitment through GATE 2019? Generally, GATE scores are used for shortlisting but in some instances they are used for direct recruitment. This solely depends upon the PSUs and you will have to check each one to know the selection process. For instance, BSNL didn’t conduct any interview for recruitment for its BSNL JTO Recruitment while NTPC went further to conduct another test for further shortlisting. However, generally, a personal interview and in some cases a group discussion are the screening tools used for PSU recruitment through GATE.

 

Reasons for popularity of PSU Recruitment through GATE 2019

 

Starting 2014, one of the many reasons why GATE has seen an increase of applicants is the recruitment by PSUs. There are many reasons for this interest- some good and some bad. Check them out below.

  • Since it is perceived that GATE scores can’t be manipulated as it is a computer based test, the feeling is strong that the results are unbiased and there are no chances of unfair means in the exam, students accept the exam as a reliable one.

  • The pay is good and the job stable at the PSUs. For many this is a lifetime opportunity for a secure job that may end with 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)

Know the 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

Eligibility Criteria for PSU Recruitment through GATE 2019

 

Apart from the valid GATE score in the relevant GATE paper, PSUs may specify other eligibility criteria like the pass percentage or CGPA obtained during graduation, age limit, medical certificate to signify fitness. Indian nationals are only eligible for PSU recruitment through GATE 2019.

 

Important: Candidates having Colour blindness are ineligible for PSU recruitment in most cases.
