    Status of Competitive Examinations by SSC

    At present the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) conducts following mandated eight All India Open Competitive Examinations in a year, viz.

    1. Combined Graduate Level Examination.
    2. Combined Higher Secondary Level Examination.
    3. Junior Engineers (Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, Quantity Surveying and Contract) Examination.
    4. Sub Inspectors in Delhi Police and Central Armed Police Forces & Assistant Sub Inspectors in CISF Examination.
    5. Combined Junior Hindi Translators, Senior Translators and Hindi Pradhyapak Examination.
    6. Junior Translators (CSOLS) Examination.
    7. Multi Tasking (Non-Technical) Staff Examination.
    8. Stenographers Grade 'C’ & 'D’ Examination.


    In addition to above, non-mandated examinations are also being conducted by the SSC, as and when required. Presently, SSC is conducting three such examinations, viz.

    (i) Constables (GD) in CAPFs, NIA & SSF and Rifleman (GD) in Assam Rifles Examination.

    (ii) Constables (Executive) (Male & Female) in Delhi Police Examination.

    (iii) Scientific Assistants in India Meteorological Department Examination.

    Besides, the Commission also makes recruitment to isolated posts (not covered by the open competitive examinations) through the selection method for different Group `B’ (Non-gazetted) and Group `C’ (Non-Technical) posts in different Ministries, Departments, Attached and Subordinate Offices of the Government of India. These examinations are conducted for recruitment to posts where the essential qualification varies from Matriculation to Post Graduation specific to the job requirement.

    Upto the financial year 2015-16, all the examinations of the SSC were conducted in the OMR mode. From the year 2016-17, the SSC has started conducting examinations in Computer based mode.

    The details of total number of candidates registered/eligible for various examinations and number of candidates who appeared in different examinations during the last three years are as below:

    Financial Year
    Registered/Eligible Candidates
    Candidates Present/Appeared

    2015-16
    14936978
    7829909


    2016-17
    20072774
    5833506


    2017-18(upto 28.02.2018)
    13720938
    5569270



    With the adoption of Computer Based Mode of examination in the Year 2016-17, the examination cycle for a single Tier examination is completed within 3-5 months (approximately) while larger examinations, conducted by the SSC in 3-4 stages, are completed within 10-12 months (approximately). In addition, the Commission has developed a dynamic “Notice Board” on its website, wherein the dates for the declaration of results for each examination are hosted immediately after the conduct of the examination and all efforts are made to ensure that the timelines so set are adhered to strictly.

    This was stated by the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today.

    President's Secretariat
    12-November, 2018 12:51 IST
    Address by the Hon’ble President of India Shri Ram Nath Kovind on the occasion of call on by the faculty and course members of 58th NDC course

    It gives me immense pleasure to welcome all of you to Rashtrapati Bhavan. I am sure that the 58th Course of the NDC has been both fruitful and enriching for all of you. It is a unique Course indeed as it brings together officers from our Armed Forces and Civil Services. I am certain that you would have learnt as much from each other as from your faculty. I also note that there are 25 participating officers from 22 partner countries as well. I hope that you got ample opportunity to gain from your course as well as from your experience of India. I also welcome the spouses of all participants, faculty members and staff officers who are present here today.

    The global environment in which we live is challenging and dynamic. There was a time when security and defence were synonymous with the need to maintain a nation’s territorial integrity. That is no longer the case today.

    Today, the idea of security incorporates economic and energy security, as well as concerns about cyber-security, health, food, emerging technologies and the environment. In an increasingly connected world, political, social and economic upheavals beyond our national borders impact our security more strongly than ever before.

    A country’s ability to successfully master and negotiate the concerns in each of the above areas defines its national power. No doubt, each of these areas requires specialisation and analysis. However, they are also interlinked, calling for an integrated approach from those responsible for our security, as well as a process of constant learning and knowledge updating.

    It is quite a complex task to bring different disciplines together to work in an integrated manner. In a democratic system like India’s, this requires different agencies and departments of the state – or frankly even the private sector – to work in coordination. And to understand the strengths and limits of each other’s functioning.

    This means that the political executive and officers of the civil services must be conversant with the capabilities and thinking of the defence forces. Similarly, military officers need to be sensitised to the constitutional and administrative framework within which the executive operates. All of these are elements in the creation of a national security approach.

    The success of any nation state in this regard depends on how effective it is in developing its concerned human resources. It is in this context that the NDC course is so important. All of you – civil and military officers – come together for a period of almost 11 months. This, I am sure, provides you ample opportunities to share your specialised expertise and related perspectives with your Coursemates. The Course must have enriched your understanding of each other’s strengths and constraints and the possible opportunities for collaboration. Ultimately, these 11 months are an investment for building a corpus of uniquely skilled set of officers who can understand, design and implement a holistic security approach. This course meets not just the individual country needs – but paves the way for an enlightened understanding of our shared security concerns.

    I am told that six components or studies comprise the curriculum of the NDC course. The Socio-Political Study helps in comprehending the main features of Indian society and polity. The Economy Security Study introduces you to principles and practices that shape economic trends and their impact on comprehensive security.



    The next three studies are on:

    1. International Security Environment
    2. Global Issues, including technology and the environment
    3. India’s Strategic Neighbourhood


    All of these focus on factors that shape the international security environment – and affect India’s foreign policy.

    The final study is on Strategies and Structures for National Security. It is the synthesis of everything you have learnt and experienced during the year.

    I am confident that this course and this exposure would have left you better informed and enhanced your abilities to contribute to your country’s security perspectives.

    India and its neighbourhood – and the broader Asian continent – is faced with multiple security threats and risks that have assumed global significance. Terrorism and violent extremism are common challenges that are both state-based and asymmetrical. Also, as Asia emerges as the hotspot and the growth centre of the global economic order, security concerns will increasingly focus on securing our economic interests and growth objectives. Threats will come in all domains – from the maritime space to cyberspace. We have to be prepared.

    We need to develop a ‘Strategic Culture’ with respect to security both in India and your respective countries. As graduates and alumni of the NDC, you are now part of the same family. And along with the faculty members of the NDC, I am sure you will contribute to strengthening our understanding of the multidimensional approach to security in the years to come.

    I wish the NDC and all the participants in this course the very best. To our international participants, I hope this has also been a time to discover India and to make friends. Wherever you go, you will carry a bit of India with you.



    Thank you

    Jai Hind!
