Haryana chief secretary DS Dhesi has directed administrative secretaries to make necessary amendments in service rules of their departments to implement the state government’s ‘no interview’ policy for recruitment in Group-C and D posts.

Recruitments will now be made on the basis of written examination and minimum educational qualification.

For Group-D posts in those departments where minimum qualification is just knowledge of Hindi or English, the minimum qualification will be Class 8 pass.

Presiding over a meeting of administrative secretaries, the chief secretary said the interview system has been eliminated in recruitment to Group-C and D categories. He said various departments will make amendments in service rules at their own level without taking approval from the cabinet, general administration department or finance department.

For Group-D posts in those departments where minimum qualification is just knowledge of Hindi or English, the minimum qualification will be Class 8 pass. However, in jobs where the minimum qualification is Class 10 or 12, the norms will remain the same. The chief secretary said the State Eligibility Test in Computer Appreciation and Application will not be applicable on other posts except for the post of clerk.

He said employees or persons already having computer qualifications such as BCA, MCA, BTech or MTech in computers from reputed institutions, diploma in computers from government polytechnics, Haryana Knowledge Corporation Limited, Hartron, DOEACC or NIELIT will be exempted from the State Eligibility Test.

The state government has dissolved the selection committees constituted by the general administration department for conducting interviews of the candidates against the vacancies of Group-D posts with immediate effect. In its last meeting, the cabinet decided to do away with the interview system during the selection process in case of recruitment to Group-C and D posts.
