  • In Paper-I of Tier-II, it will be mandatory for the candidates to qualify all the

Based on the aggregate performance in Section-I and Section-II of Paper-I of Tier-II Examination, candidates will be shortlisted for evaluation of Section-III of Paper-I of Tier-II Examination. The candidates who are not qualified in Section-I + Section-II will not be eligible for evaluation of Section-III and they will not be considered for further selection process.

  • Section-III of Paper-I of Tier-II is qualifying in nature, in other words both modules i.e. Computer Knowledge Test and DEST are qualifying in nature. However, in Module-I, a separate higher cut-off, as decided by the Commission, will be fixed for the posts where Computer Proficiency is prescribed (as mentioned at Para 13.8.10) in comparison to other posts. Similarly, in Module-II i.e. DEST, a separate higher standard/ cut-off, as decided by the Commission, will be fixed for the posts where either Computer Proficiency or DEST is prescribed (as mentioned at Para 13.8.11.4) in comparison to other posts.
  • Preference for various posts and departments will be taken from the candidates through Online Option Form on the website of the Commission before declaration of final result. A candidate will not be considered for a Post and Ministry/ Department/ Organization, if he has not indicated his preference for it. Options once submitted shall be treated as final and will not be changed subsequently under any circumstances. Therefore, candidates must be careful in exercise of such options.
  • Candidates, who do not submit their post preference(s) on the website of the Commission within the stipulated time, will not be considered for any post in the Final Result. Such candidates shall not be provided with another opportunity to exercise preference for posts and will be solely responsible for the same. Any grievance received in this regard in any form like Post, Fax, Email, by hand, etc. shall not be entertained by the Commission and will be summarily rejected.
  • Posts listed at Para-15.5 have mandatory requirements of physical and medical standards including Physical Efficiency Test (Details of such requirements are available at Annexure-XVII). Examination of such physical and medical standards will be conducted after the final selection of candidates by the User Department concerned. If a candidate fails in such tests, his candidature will not be subsequently considered for any other post/ department. Candidates are therefore required to carefully go through these requirements and give their considered preference of posts.
  • Merit list will be prepared on the basis of overall performance of candidates in Tier-II Examination only.
  • Merit List for the post of Junior Statistical Officer (JSO) and Statistical Investigator Grade-II will be prepared on the basis of aggregate marks scored in Section-I & Section-II of Paper-I and Paper-II of Tier-II examination subject to qualifying Section-III (both modules) of Paper-I of Tier-II.

    standards and Module-II (i.e. DEST) of Section-III of Paper-I of Tier-II at higher standards.
  • Merit List for the posts, where CPT is prescribed (as mentioned at Para 13.8.10), will be prepared on the basis of aggregate marks scored in Section-I & Section-II of Paper-I of Tier-II examination subject to qualifying of Module I (i.e. Computer Knowledge Test) & Module-II (i.e. DEST) of Section-III of Paper-I of
    Tier-II at higher standards.
  • Merit List for all other posts will be prepared on the basis of aggregate marks scored in Section-I & Section-II of Paper-I of Tier-II examination only subject to qualifying Section-III (both modules) of Paper-I of Tier-II.
  • Final selection of candidates, in each category, will be made on the basis of overall performance in Tier-II Examination’ and ‘preference of posts’ exercised by them. Once the candidate has been given his first available preference, as per his merit, he will not be considered for any other option. Candidates are,
    therefore, required to exercise preference of posts very carefully. The option/ preference once exercised by the candidates will be treated as FINAL and IRREVERSIBLE. Subsequent request for change of allocation/ service bycandidates will not be entertained under any circumstances/ reasons. 
  • The final allotment of posts is made on the basis of merit-cum-preferences of Posts/ Departments given by the candidates and once a post is allotted, no change of posts will be made by the Commission due to non-fulfillment of any post specific requirements of physical/ medical/ educational standards. In other words, for example, if a candidate has given higher preference for a post and is selected for that post; in that case, if he fails to meet the medical/ physical/ educational standards for that post, his candidature will be rejected and he will not be considered for any other posts.
  • SC, ST, OBC, EWS, ESM and PwBD candidates, who are selected on their own merit without relaxed standards, will not be adjusted against the reserved share of vacancies. Such candidates will be accommodated against the unreserved vacancies in the post as per their position in the overall merit or vacancies earmarked for their category, whichever is advantageous to them. The reserved vacancies will be filled up separately from amongst the eligible SC, ST, OBC, EWS, ESM and PwBD candidates.

 

  • A person with benchmark disability who is selected on his own merit can be appointed against an unreserved vacancy provided the post is identified suitable for persons with benchmark disability of relevant category.
  • Candidates on final selection may be allotted a State/ UT/ Zone by the User Ministry/ Department/ Organization concerned. Such candidates may be required to acquire the proficiency in local language of the allotted State/ UT/ Zone for confirmation of the candidates to the allotted posts by the User Ministry/
    Department/ Organization concerned. 
  • If a candidate scoring more than cut-off marks in any Tier/ stage of the examination is not qualified for the subsequent stage/ final selection due to any reason, he must represent to the concerned Regional Office of the Commission within two months of the declaration of the result or two weeks prior to the conduct of next stage of the examination, whichever is earlier.
  • If a candidate is finally selected and does not receive any correspondence from the Commission or the concerned User Department within a period of one year from the declaration of final result, he must communicate immediately thereafter with the User Department concerned.
  • The result will be declared only once by the Commission and no further nomination of candidates would be made in the event of candidates not joining subsequent to the conduct of Document Verification by the User Departments. In such cases, the Departments may take further action regarding carrying forward
    of vacancies in accordance with the extant rules.
