It is really a happy occasion for unemployed youth of Telangana State that Telangana Public Service Commission has been established and started working independently. The unemployed youth of Telangana State have much aspiration that unbiased selection with proper refined procedure would be done for the existing vacancies in Government and its undertaking sector.
The Government of Telangana has appointed a committee headed by Prof Hara Gopal with handful members of intellectuals having good academic and administrative exposure for refinement of procedure of selection and also revision of syllabus. The Committee has started its work as per their objectives and will definitely take appropriate decision keeping in view of formation of new State of Telangana. However, few suggestions are forwarded to the Committee and to the Government.
- There should be uniform policy for direct recruitment quota in all the departments as it varies in different departments most likely 30 per cent is amicable proportion that can be earmarked for direct recruitment.
- There should be classification of posts as Administrative and Technical .
- There is every need to have reclassification of post under Group-I, Group-II, Group-III and Group-IV and Technical Posts separately.
- All the posts which has been classified under Group-I, Group-II, Group-III and Group-IV which does not require any specific/ technical qualification should be brought under the single category of Administrative. All the other posts which need specialisation or specific qualification to hold the post should be categorised as Technical.
- The annual calendar for conduct of examinations for Group-I & Group-II and Group-III & Group-IV posts should be fixed keeping in view of all other country wide, Government of India , bank recruitment exams and other exams.
- There should be common conventional written examination for Group-I and Group-II posts followed by interview
- Separate Common conventional written examination should be conducted for Group-III and Group-IV without any interview.
- For Group-I and Group-II, there should be preliminary examination out of which candidates for main examination should be selected in the ratio of 1:50. Further, from main examination results candidates for oral interview should be selected in the ratio of 1:3.
- Basing on the accumulated marks secured in main examination and interview final selection should be done.
- The demarcation of marks for interview should be not more than 5 per cent of the total marks.
- The Interview Board should have at least one subject expert for the subjects to be interviewed.
- There is every need to have transparency with regard to conduct of interview and there should be audio and video coverage of the interviews conducted. Further, the candidates should have the right to see their performance in the interview.
- There is every need to have high confidentiality in setting the examination paper and valuation.
- The examination papers should invariably prepared by the subject expert, two or three set of papers need to be prepared and at random selection of paper for conduct of examination should be done one hour before the examination.
- The valuation of conventional examination paper should be by the subject expert.
- There should be unique codification in different steps
1. First level code should be General Code of Group/ Adminstrative/ Technical Posts
2. Second level code should be specific for the subjects
3. Third level code should be specific for the Centre of Examination.
4. After conduct of examination all the papers should be sorted out subject wise with thorough shuffling and at random should be allotted to subject experts for evaluation.
- Much care should be taken throughout the process starting from release of notification till final selection of candidates is done. It is being observed that after notification for filling of posts, even after conduct of examination and before declaration of final results, it is being challenged in the court of law due to some snag. The complete process was held up for years together. This has created much inconvenience to the unemployed youth.
