Disparity in the ratio in which candidates are called for interview
Vikram Sarabhai Space Center has invited applications for various post through their advertisement number 313. The seection process as per the advertisement was as follows.'" Based on the online bio-data, initial screening / written test will be conducted for shortlisting the candidates for interview. The Centre may adopt the method of conducting written test for initial screening or may directly shortlist the candidates for interview by fixing a higher cut-off percentage of marks scored in the essential qualification advertised. Candidates called for Written Test / interview will have the option to answer the questions in Hindi also. Please note that the qualification prescribed is the minimum requirement and the same does not automatically make candidates eligible for written test / interview / selection. If written test is opted for preliminary screening, the written test score will not reflect in the final selection process. The final selection will be based on performance of candidates in the interview only."
2. The center did not conducted exam and they shortlisted candidates based on the marks. A major disparity has been observed in the ratio in which the candidates are short listed for the interview. Eg. for the post 1448 (10 vacancies) 131 candidates were short listed. Ratio : 1:13. For most of the posts the ratio was 1: 10. However, in one post 1449 (07 vacancies) only 41 candidates were short listed. Ratio 1:6.
3. All the above posts were part of the same advertisement. Is there any provision for stopping the interview process due to lack of transperancy?
