The CBRT, which is the first stage for direct recruitment to various positions, will be conducted between October 9 to 11, GPSC chairman Jose Manual Noronha told
All the standard operating procedures, as prescribed by the authorities, will be followed for the CBRT which will be conducted over three days. Candidates are expected to appear in batches of around 15 per laboratory.
All sanitisation procedures will be followed before and after the CBRT. Adequate precautions, including thermal scanning and mandatory use of Aarogya Setu app, will be enforced for all candidates at the test centre.
The GPSC had advertised for a large number of positions mainly in higher education, civil aviation, health services, dental college, medical college, mines and geology, skill training, animal husbandry and veterinary services and agriculture department.
A total of 233 posts had been advertised and almost 6,500 applications were received. The CBRT will be conducted for all positions, except junior scale officer (JSO) posts. Tests for JSO posts will be held once colleges are allowed to reopen and the pandemic subsides since around 3,600 candidates are expected to appear for it.
In July, the GSPCB had decided to postpone the CBRT for various posts in government departments due to rising Covid-19 cases in the state.
