22 Nov 2017

The Haryana government today decided to change the prescribed marks ratio for recruitment in Group C and D posts in the state.

The state cabinet decided to change the prescribed ratio of 85:15 to 90:10 -- that is 90 marks for the written test and a maximum of 10 marks for experience and some objective socio-economic criteria -- in respect of recruitment to Group C and D posts in the state, an official release issued here said. A proposal to this effect was approved in the cabinet meeting presided over by chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar here today.

Five marks will be given if no person from among the applicant's father, mother, spouse, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters is, was or has been a regular employee in any department, board, corporation, company, statutory body, commission or authority of the Haryana government or any other state government or government of India, the release said. Similarly, five marks will be given if an applicant is a widow, or if the applicant's father had died before the applicant was 15 years of age, it said.

Five marks will be given if an applicant belongs to a denotified tribe (Vimukt Jatis and Tapriwas Jatis) or nomadic tribe of Haryana which is neither a Scheduled Caste nor a Backward Class. A maximum of five marks have been kept for experience -- One-half (=0.5) mark for each year or part thereof exceeding six months of experience, out of a maximum of ten years, on the same or a highest post in any department, board, corporation, company, statutory body, commission, authority of government of Haryana, the release said.

No marks will be awarded for any period less than six months, it said, adding that no applicant will be given more than 10 marks under any circumstances. Notably, the state government had already announced to do away with the system of interviews for Group C and D posts.
