The need for such an agency is a must because the current system is a symbol of inefficiency. There are about 3 Crores aspirants who enrolled for a nearly 1.25 Lakhs vacancies every year. They have to go through a rigorous process and various exams in order to secure a job in the central government.

Now, the role of the NRA would be to make things much simpler and bring the inadequate system to level, making it more efficient than it ever was.

The NRA is said to conduct a Common Eligibility Test (CET) which would filter the most ineligible candidates in the first round itself. Afterwhich, based on the score in the CET, one can apply for a vacancy with the respective agency as allotted to them.

The NRA will shortlist candidates only for group B and C posts only. These posts are in the nontechnical fields and until now have been governed by SSC, RRB, and IBPS.

There would be three levels for the test:

  • Higher Secondary
  • Matriculate 
  • Graduate

Afterwhich, the candidates would be divided into tiers (1,2,3) and would be handed over to respective agencies for the next rounds which are agency-specific.

The conduction of National Recruitment Agency is required to be made easily accessible to all, which is why each district would have its own examination center. This way the people who are not that economically sound, or based in remote areas would also be benefitted equally.

The score of CET would be valid until three years of the exam being conducted. While there is no limit on how many times one can give the exams, but the result of the latest attempt would be deemed the current score of the candidate.

The exam would be made available in 12 languages which would make sure no eligible candidates get left out.

Conduction of the NRA would make the process of recruitment snappy. It will save time and also saves money on resources spend on taking multiple examinations.

The current budget that has been set up for the National Recruitment Agency by the Union Cabinet is INR 1517.57 Cr, for a period of three years.
