PANAJI: The Goa Staff Selection Commission (SSC) terminated the long-standing practice of hiring through government departments on Friday by releasing its first advertisement to replace group-C positions that were vacant.
The commission published job openings for 33 positions across nine departments and 33 categories.
As per the instructions or orders issued by the government from time to time, the candidate should ensure that they possess the necessary educational qualification, a valid 15-year residence certificate issued by the competent authority in Goa, registration with the employment exchange, a Goa/valid employment registration card, a birth certificate, or a caste/disabilities certificate.
“With the Goa staff selection commission, our government has delivered on its commitment to conduct transparent, time-bound hiring for the Goa government,” chief minister Pramod Sawant stated.
Network engineer, laboratory technician, assistant sub-inspector (wireless operator), electronics/physics technician, and secondary school drawing teachers are among the positions that are being advertised.
Chief Minister Pramod Sawant stated, “Our government has delivered on its pledge of transparent, time-bound hiring in the Goa government through the Goa Staff Selection Commission.
In the event that more than 1,200 people apply for any given post, the commission retains the power to hold a two-tier computer-based test (CBT). The material and exam structure for a single-tier CBT (when there are fewer than 1,200 candidates) will be the same as those listed for CBT-1.
If a two-tier CBT is conducted, only the CBT-2 exam will be used for screening and short-listing. Only the marks earned in the CBT-1 will be used to select candidates after that.
This is the first time that the state government is hiring through the SSC. The government had directed all departments to complete the earlier recruitment rounds by October 31 and informed departments to submit proposals to the SSC for future requirements.
The process of recruitment will start immediately after advertisements are published in newspapers and on the commission’s website.
The information on the commission’s website is available in Konkani and Marathi, and will be made accessible to persons with disabilities.
The portal also features the syllabus for examinations for each department’s posts, as well as mock tests. Previous question papers will also be made available for applicants.
