Statistical Investigator Exam (Grade III) - Mode of Selection

Statistical Investigator and Compiler Grade III Examination 2008 Mode of Selection

Candidates fulfilling the prescribed qualifications will be required to undergo a Written Examination. The Commission hold full discretion to fix minimum qualifying marks or as a whole component-wise in any one paper or in all papers for different categories, i.e., UR, SC, ST, OBC, etc. Candidates declared qualified on the basis of the Written Examination will be considered for the post of Statistical Investigators Grade –III and for the post of Compiler on the basis of their performance in the written examination.

Final Select List would be prepared on the basis of Merit–cum-Preference for the posts, as some of the candidates may have applied for both the categories of posts and in that order so many candidates as are found by the Commission to be qualified at the Examination will be recommended for appointment upto the number of un-reserved vacancies. However, in so far as the candidates opting for both the posts, in the final selection, they will be offered only one post depending on their Higher Merit -cum-Preference.


Tie Cases: If there are candidates having the same aggregate marks in the written examination then the tie will be resolved by the Commission by referring to the marks in the first cut off paper, followed by Date of Birth, i.e., the candidate older in age gets preference. Lastly, if the tie still persists, the tie is finally resolved by referring to the alphabetical order of names, i.e., a candidate whose name begins with the alphabet which comes first in the alphabetical order gets preference.

Provided that SC, ST and OBC candidates who are selected on their own merit without relaxed standards, along with candidates belonging to other communities, will not be adjusted against the reserved share of vacancies. The reserved vacancies will be filled up separately from amongst the eligible SCs, STs and OBCs which will thus comprise SC, ST and OBC candidates who are lower in merit than the last general candidate on merit list of unreserved category but otherwise found suitable for appointment even by relaxed standard.

Provided further that the candidates belonging to the PH category or Ex- Servicemen, to the extent the number of vacancies reserved for them cannot be filled up on the basis of General Standards, be recommended at the relaxed standards to make up for the deficiency in the reserved quota subject to fitness of such candidates for selection, irrespective of their ranks in the order of merit.

An Ex-Serviceman or Physically Handicapped category (OH / HH) candidates who qualifies on the basis of relaxed standards, viz., age limit, extended zone of consideration, etc. is to be counted against reserved vacancies and not against general vacancies subject to fitness of such candidate for selection. Such candidates may also be recommended at the relaxed standards to the extent the number of vacancies reserved for them, to make up for the deficiency in their rank in the order of merit. In so far as cases of Ex-Servicemen are concerned, deduction from the age of Ex-Servicemen is permissible against the reserved or unreserved posts and such exemption cannot be termed as relaxed standards in regard to age.

Candidates, who are appointed on the basis of this selection, will be on Probation for a period of two years and during the period of probation, the candidates would be required to undergo such training or pass such examinations as prescribed by the Controlling Authority for satisfactory completion of probation. On completion of the period of probation, the candidates shall, if considered fit for permanent appointment, be confirmed in their appointment by the Controlling Authority.

Success in the examination confers no right of appointment unless government are satisfied after such enquiry as may be considered necessary that the candidate is suitable in all respects for appointment to the service / post.

Note-: The candidates applying for the examination should ensure that they fulfill all the eligibility conditions for admission to the examination. Their admission at all the stages of examination will be purely provisional, subject to their satisfying the prescribed eligibility conditions. If, on verification, at any time before or after the written examination, it is found that they do not fulfill any of the eligibility conditions, their candidature for the examination will be cancelled by the Commission.
