What is the National Recruitment Agency?
- At present, candidates have to appear for multiple examinations conducted by multiple agencies at different points of time for similar posts. NRA will be set up as an independent, professional, specialist organisation for conduct of a computer-based online Common Eligibility Test for recruitment to non-gazetted posts. [Non-gazetted jobs are the government jobs or posts which do not give the person the authority to issue an official stamp on the behalf of the government. In terms of types of jobs, this includes Group B, Group C and Group D government jobs].
- The Finance Minister in the budget speech has also mentioned that a test centre in every district, particularly in the aspirational districts would be set up.
