About 11,000 candidates have been recommended for different government jobs by the SSC during 2018-19 so far, Minister of State for Personnel Jitendra Singh informed Lok Sabha today. A total of 25,138 and 68,880 candidates were recommended in 2015-16 and 2016-17, respectively. In 2017-18, 45,391 candidates were offered government jobs and 10,997 were recommended by SSC in 2018-19 (till June 30, 2018), Singh said.
"Generally there is no unnecessary delay on the part of the SSC in conducting its examinations," Singh said. He said the SSC announces its calendar of exams well in advance and all efforts are made to strictly adhere to it. "In exceptional circumstances, some delay may occur due to unavoidable/compelling circumstances, yet SSC makes all efforts to conduct examination at the earliest," Singh said.
