The Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that scores obtained by candidates in recruitment exams conducted by government and public sector undertakings will be shared with private sector to help them hire suitable candidates.
The government and PSUs conduct a number of recruitment examinations, and as per the prevailing practice, the scores in these examinations are retained by the government.
According to PM Modi, the aim is to reduce search costs in the labour market for both employers and employees. It will enable better matching of candidates from labour surplus areas with jobs in other regions.
As per the proposal, the results and the candidate information will be made available to all the employers, wherever consent is given by the candidate.
Most recently, in order to eliminate corruption in government recruitments, interviews for lower and middle level positions were abolished.
