    Re: Procedure of getting a job in PSU after GATE

    The Graduate Aptitude test in
    Engineering ( GATE ) exam is the all
    India qualifying test for ME and MTech
    admissions. But GATE is a route to
    enter the public sector , which offers
    good opportunities alongside a
    decent pay check.
    Why public sector ?
    A PSU job is the dream of many an
    Indian. Jobs here mean a good pay
    cheque, perks , decent career growth
    and most important, job security.
    Recruitment by PSUs has always been
    in large numbers .
    Hiring process for jobs
    To ensure recruitment of better
    quality personnel , it has always been
    the policy of these companies to hold
    an entrance test followed by a group
    discussion and finally a personal
    interview. Some major PSUs like NTPC ,
    used to conduct exams separately for
    entry- level engineering positions like
    ‘Technical Trainees ’ and ‘Graduate
    Engineers’ to ‘Management Trainees ’.
    The number of applications for these
    exams have always been huge –
    10,000 applications for as few a 1000
    posts , sometimes for even 500 posts
    or less! Sifting through these to
    shortlist candidates , conducting the
    entrance test , group discussions and
    personal interviews – consumes
    effort , time and money . To recruit a
    miniscule number of trainees in terms
    of the company’s actual employee
    rolls was becoming a huge and
    unavoidable problem.
    Hiring via GATE
    Now, 14 public sector companies have
    announced recruitment via GATE
    2013, which will be conducted in two
    phases – one on January 20 followed
    by Phase 2 on February 10, 2013 .
    Openings for engineering graduates
    to the tune of 1 ,874 positions (plus
    those not mentioned by some
    companies ) have already been
    advertised for !
    This is a huge number compared to a
    year back when merely two or three
    companies used GATE as a
    compulsory criterion to screen
    candidates. IOCL was the first PSU to
    kick off the trend . The company got
    good candidates proficient in their
    subjects. After the success of their
    recruitment strategy, NTPC and others
    followed, and in 2012 eleven more
    announced recruitment through GATE
    BEL and many more have advertised
    and more are expected to follow.
    Apart from these companies , many
    other research institutes like BARC ,
    and Junior Research Fellowships in
    CSIR Laboratories and CSIR-
    sponsored labs also seek scientists
    and researchers through GATE .
    The GATE edge
    Held by the IITs the credibility of the
    exam and scores is unquestionable .
    Those qualifying GATE are not only
    considered to be good at their
    subject, the exam pattern ensures
    that candidates have strong analytical
    and decision- making abilities. Besides,
    mastering an entire course of
    Engineering ( 30 plus subjects) for a
    three- hour test , is tough! Having one
    single test also does away with the
    expense of holding a separate exam
    to shortlist suitable candidates . Also,
    one can expect the employment
    procedure to be transparent up to a
    certain point.
    Some constraints
    Not all disciplines have this
    opportunity as most PSUs have the
    need for personnel of only certain
    engineering disciplines ( view box) .
    Also, one exam carries too much
    weight and for non-qualifiers , it would
    be a major setback with not many
    options left after it.
    Job criteria and perks
    The general age limit is from 25 to 28
    years. Pay packages range from 5
    lakhs to 12 lakhs per annum , and
    other benefits. Some companies ask
    for a surety bond for 2 -3 years to
    ensure that the employees do not
    leave at the first opportunity . Payment
    of application fee is absent for most
    companies (though it is a part of the
    application form for some companies ,
    to be paid online or via a DD ).
    A change for the better ?
    According to the GATE portal, 777 ,134
    candidates registered for GATE 2012
    of which 6 ,86 ,614 candidates
    appeared for the exam. Nearly 81 % of
    the total number appeared for
    popular papers like Electronics and
    Communication Engineering
    (176 ,944 ) , Computer Science and
    Information Technology (156 , 780 ),
    Mechanical Engineering (112 ,320 ) and
    Electrical Engineering ( 110 ,125 ). The
    total number who qualified GATE
    2012 is 108 ,526 !
    A high stakes test
    GATE 2013 has almost gone fully
    online, and it is expected that the
    results would be more reliable . It is
    also believed that it is a completely
    transparent process. So, GATE 2013
    has a lot at stake for students . It has
    become the decision maker for them .
    They qualify to either go on to a
    higher education or a good career
    platform. Either way it seems to be the
    ‘GATEway ’ to success!
    GATE comprises 3 Sections :
    Compulsory Engineering Mathematics
    General Aptitude
    XE (Engineering Sciences) and XL (Life
    Sciences ) papers
    How to apply
    Register for GATE (closed for GATE
    2013 )
    Apply to individual companies
    separately (only for students who
    qualify in GATE ) . The score card of
    GATE is a compulsory part of the
    application procedure .
    Most companies have an online
    application module , which should
    open by December 2012 up to
    January, 2013 and in some cases
    February , 2013
    Shortlisting for group discussions ( in
    some companies ) and personal

    Hello dude!

    For getting into public sector companies you must complete graduation in Engineering with good percentage of aggregate.The Eligibility details are mentioned below:
    * Must have complete Engineering from any recognized university.
    * Must have got atleast 65% of marks.
    * Minimum age allowed is 21 years.
    * Maximum age is 30 years.
    * Age relaxation is provided according to government.
    * The candidates belonging to SC/ST category will get 5 years upper age relaxable.
    * The candidates belonging to OBC category will get 3 years upper age relaxable.
    * The candidates belonging to Physically handicapped category will get 10 years upper age relaxable.
    * The candidates belonging to Ex-service men category will get 5 years upper age relaxable.

    The above mentioned are the eligibility details of the public sector companies and some of the companies that are recruiting through GATE-2013 mentioned below:

    NALCO etc.

    However you need to qualify in the GATE Examination for getting into PSU's because all the PSU's are making it must to qualify in the exam.The candidates who have qualified in the exam need to attend the interview conducted by the respective company.These are the various details of Core companies.After writing the exam,you will receive the score card and based on that you must apply for various companies.So these are the details of getting jobs by writing the GATE exam.
