In a gigantic recruitment drive, the Staff Selection Commission is to notify more than one lakh jobs in 2013-2014. It expects to finish the recruitment process by September 2013. The Commission expects to receive about 1.5 crore applications for over one lakh jobs.
The recruitment drive will cover departments like Income-Tax, Central Excise, Food Corporation of India, AIR, Doordarshan and Central Paramilitary establishments. The tests are to be conducted in regional languages as well so that local candidates have access to job opportunities in any part of the country.
