Paper-II will only be of qualifying nature and is intended to test elementary language skills in view of categorisation of the post as Group-C and in view of job requirements. However, marks scored by the candidates in Paper-II will be used to decide merit in case more than one candidate score equal normalized marks in Paper-I. Qualifying marks in Paper-II will be 40% for unreserved category and 35% for all reserved category candidates.
There will be separate category-wise, State/ UT-wise cut-offs in Paper-I. As the vacancies for MTS are in two age groups i.e. (i) 18 to 25 years and (ii) 18 to 27 years, the commission may fix separate age group-wise, category-wise and state/ UT-wise cut- offs in paper-I.
Based on the performance in paper-I and scoring the cut-off marks in paper-II, candidates will be shortlisted for appearing in the document verification to check their eligibility as per the information given by them in the online application Form. The eligible candidates whose documents are found in order will be considered for final selection.
