Gujarat Subordinate Service Selection Board (GSSSB) has published official notification regarding cancelling / postponing the bin sachivalay clerk and office assistant recruitment 2019. The exam was supposed to be held on October 20, 2019.
There is no clear explanation on why the step has been taken. It is reported to have been done on the basis of government orders. However even then, a clear cut reason behind the move remains ambiguous. This is the third time that the exam has been cancelled or postponed.
GSSSB Bin Sachivalay clerk and office assistant notification 2019 was to hold recruitment to fill 3,738 vacancies. A total of 10.45 lakh candidates had applied for the recruitment for the class 3 cadre recruitment.
The exam was scheduled to be conducted at over 3,100 exam centers in 33 districts in the state. However, despite all arrangements, the exam stands cancelled or postponed.
There was some confusion on the matter until two days ago. Until Saturday evening, there were unofficial reports only that the exam was cancelled, whereas the official notice on the website said that the exam will be held. However later that night, official notifications appeared.
New eligibility criteria for Clerk and Office Assistant?
As per reports, the Gujarat Subordinate Service Selection Board is planning to change the educational qualification requirement. Both clerk as well as office assistant posts were kept open for class 12th pass candidates.
However now it is being planned that graduates should be eligible for the clerical cadre posts. Though for office assistants the requirement may remain class 12th pass.
There is no final decision yet on this matter. It is not even decided whether this recruitment will be completed first and then this new requirement will be implemented in upcoming recruitment. Or whether this recruitment will also be conducted with changed eligibility criteria. If that happens, then a lot of the candidates who have applied earlier will become ineligible.
It may however be noted that the eligibility criteria change matter has only been reported by newspapers, and there is no official notice about the same.
GSSSB Bin Sachivalay recruitment 2019 was first announced last year, in the month of October. Then the form was reopened in June this year. Then the admit card for the recruitment was released on October 1. However now, the admit card becomes invalid as the exam has been cancelled. If the exam is rescheduled, then fresh admit cards will be issued.
The official website of GSSSB is gsssb.gujarat.gov.in, where all official updates about the exam and other ongoing GSSSB Gujarat recruitment are updated from time to time.
