The CBRT, which is the first phase for direct recruitment in various positions, will be conducted between October 9-11, said GPSC chairman Jose Manual Noronha
For the CBRT, which is carried out over three days, all standard operating procedures prescribed by the authorities are followed. Candidates are expected to appear in batches of approximately 15 per laboratory.
All disinfection procedures are followed before and after the CBRT. Reasonable precautions, including thermal scanning and the mandatory use of the Aarogya Setu app, will be enforced for all candidates in the test center.
The GPSC had applied for a variety of positions, primarily in higher education, civil aviation, healthcare, dentistry, medicine, college and geology, qualification, animal husbandry and veterinary care, and agriculture.
A total of 233 positions were advertised and almost 6,500 applications were received. The CBRT is conducted for all positions with the exception of the junior scale officer (JSO) post. Tests for JSO vacancies will be held as soon as colleges are allowed to reopen and the pandemic subsides, with around 3,600 candidates expected to turn up.
In July, the GSPCB decided to postpone the CBRT for various positions in government departments as the state has increased cases of Covid-19.
