Though not available in a any service condition, CBDT is going ahead with the examination agenda and NADT is in the process of devising the examination pattern.
As informed by sources, the proposed examination will be held twice in a year, with 100 as full marks. General and SC/ST candidates have to obtain 50 and 45 respectively for qualifying.
The exam may be of three parts, Objective, Subjective and Internal Assessment by RTIs after training.
DIT exam is likely to hold the examination.
It is not clear whether CBDT can impose this sort of mandatory examinations without incorporating them in the recruitment rules ? Hope, association is considering the legal path beside agitation.
