Government job aspirants in Tamil Nadu are looking forward to getting the TNFUSRC Forest Watcher hall ticket 2019. As per the revised schedule, exam for the Forest Watcher recruitment 2019 is scheduled to be held on three dates – October 4, 2019, October 5, 2019, and October 6, 2019. There will be two sessions on each day. Through admit card or the hall ticket, candidates wish to not only come to know their exam centre, but also their exam date and shift.
Tamil Nadu Forest Uniformed Services Recruitment Committee (TNFUSRC) will release the hall ticket at forests.tn.gov.in. Going by the usual method of the committee’s release of admit cards, it is expected that there will be two separate events next.
Last year TNFUSRC had conducted the recruitment for Forest Guard, and Forester. For these exams, the committee had first released admit card 6-8 days before the first exam date. However in the admit card, they only provided name of city where they have to go for exam. After that candidates were separately sent email and SMS to inform their exam centres, exactly 3 days before their exams.
If TNFUSRC follows the same process as last time, then Forest Watcher hall ticket 2019 will release around September 26 or September 28. And after that, again if the same process applies, then exam centre will be sent separately from October 1 onwards.
However the final decision on when, where, and how to release hall tickets lies in the hands of the Tamil Nadu Forest Uniformed Services Recruitment Committee. With less than three weeks to go for the exam, the committee is looked forward to publish admit card download dates and process shortly.
Once available, candidates will be able to download the same with their registration number and password.
