Prayagraj: The Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission (UPPSC) is working to secure the future of candidates who qualify for the interview stage of Combined State/Upper Subordinate Services Examination, commonly known as UPPSC, but fail to clear it.

The commission has decided to secure jobs for such candidates in the private sector, said a senior official of the commission.

It will now prepare certified data of all such candidates after taking their consent. It will upload their names, phone numbers and other details on its website so that private firms and agencies can invite such meritorious candidates for jobs, he added.

Every year, lakhs of candidates apply for the coveted PCS exams. It is after clearing preliminary and mains exams, that they are selected for the interview round, but very few of them finally get selected against posts on offer.

However, clearing the mains and qualifying for interview is also considered exceptional achievement in terms of potential of the candidates.

According to official sources, the data would mention the name and phone number of the candidate along with their academic details and the same would be available on the commission’s website, so that private firms and agencies can invite such meritorious people for jobs.

UPPSC officials said that work has been started to implement this system and candidates are being contacted. Since private agencies are in need of hiring capable candidates, the step would prove a milestone in bridging the gap between demand and supply.

The commission will even contact the agencies to fulfil the task. Along with this, cooperation will also be taken from the state government to prepare private agencies to hire the potential candidates as per the requirement of the respective industry or agency, said a senior UPPSC official.

He further said, “The commission believes that the candidates who are completing the journey till the interview, are quite capable. Since only a few meritorious come out successful in this tough three-layered selection process, this initiative will serve two purposes– one this will prevent students going into depression by giving them job and will also serve the requirement of the industry.”

The commission is preparing to include a column related to obtaining consent from the candidates in the application for the main examination in the upcoming PCS recruitment itself.

If a candidate, going to appear in the Main Examination wants his/her name and roll number to be included in the authenticated data, he/she will have to fill the consent column in the application.
