Vacancies for candidates who crack SSC

Recently, the SSC declared that there are more than 62,000 vacancies in 2015, for which the candidates have to compete for. That, in itself, is a huge number for government postings. Therefore, the scope is just immense.

  • Grade B officer :- The scope, as mentioned above, is immense just for the fact that the pay is always proportional to the score obtained in the two tiers of the examination and also depends upon the score after the personal interview. A pretty good score in all the three will give you a higher chance to land into a Grade B post with a starting salary of around Rs. 28000-35000. If the 7th pay commission is passed, then this starting salary will burgeon to Rs. 50000 per month. A grade B officer can get into the following posts: Central Secretariat, Ministry of external affairs, Income tax, Central Excise, and more also.
  • Armed and Police force :- Other government organizations that are also a part of SSC and recruits can be recruited to them are: Indo Tibet Border Police Force (ITBPF), Border Security Force (BSF), Assam Rifles, etc. To get into these police forces, there are age criterions that need to be fulfilled. As on the first day of each year, that is, January 1, the candidate should be between the ages of 18 to 23. There are no police forces without physical requirements also. A minimum height of 170cms for men and 157cms for women, with a chest size of 80cms for men when unexpanded and a minimum expansion of 5cms, along with a proper weight within the required BMI scales are required to enter into these police forces.

Applying for the posts

After cracking the SSC examination, you just have to wait and pounce at the right opportunity to get to your post, and apply it. However, these days, you do not have to stand in long queues and fill in an application form spilling grime and sweat. Instead, the government has made it easier by creating online forms for almost all posts, and once you have applied, you just have to wait for the personal interview or direct admission into the post, respective of which post you applied to. The major catch here is to ensure that your application is processed, because due to heavy competition and more than ten times the entries with respect to the vacancies, a few applications are rejected, mostly due to human error. That cannot be overcome until the government goes fully online, which might take another few years, but the wait is definitely worth it, because the guarantee and assurance of a government job is not offered in any other sector.
