The essential qualifications indicated in the original advertisement are the minimum and mere possession of the same does not entitle candidates to be called for Test/ Interview. As the numbers of applications are large, Commission may adopt suitable short listing criteria to restrict the number of candidates to be called for Test / Interview to a reasonable number by any or more of the following methods:
(i) By defining the comparable level of experience suitably.
(ii) On the basis of any specific experience or higher Experience in the relevant field than the minimum prescribed in the advertisement.
(iii) On the basis of higher/ relevant Educational Qualifications than the minimum prescribed in the advertisement.
(iv) By holding a Recruitment Test.

Degree / Diploma / Certificate may be uploaded in support of the educational qualification. If Degree / Diploma is not available, Provisional Certificate along with full Mark sheet may be uploaded.

In case, the submitted documents do not satisfactorily support the claim made, the applications would be liable to be rejected.
Similarly, applicants who have claimed relevant experience but the Experience Certificate attached in support of that is not for the entire duration claimed or do not support the claim made would be rejected. Only the time period of relevant experience for which Experience Certificate has been submitted would be considered.
Appointment letters, office orders, transfer orders, resignation letters, pay certificates, service certificates, posting orders, affidavits and the certificates attested by the candidates themselves or self employment certificates are not considered as proof of experience.
