New Delhi : After PM’s public declaration to wind up the Planning Commission in his Independence Day address, the Modi government is now quietly trying to make irrelevant the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) and the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) for filling up vacancies in the government offices.
The job performed over the decades by the two recruitment agencies for the government is sought to be outsourced to the private agencies.
The Cabinet Secretariat has just taken the first step, inviting recruiting agencies and companies to undertake recruitment of its personnel in various poss, both technical and non-technical.
All central ministries and departments come under the Cabinet Secretariat and as such they are bound to take the clue to follow suit. Instead of notifying the UPSC and the SSC on their vacancies and urging them to select candidates for various posts, the ministries may start engaging the private agencies for their recruitment, leaving no work to do by UPSC and SSC..
The UPSC is a constitutional body for recruitment of the all-India services, Group “A” central civil services and Group “B” gazetted posts as also the commissioned officers in the defence forces.
It conducts over a dozen examinations for the purpose. The SSC, set up through a government resolution, does the same job in recruitment of non-technical group ”C” and group ”B” non gazetted posts.
The Cabinet Secretariat has, however, invited private recruiting agencies and companies to take over these responsibilities.
A public notice was issued on Wednesday by its director Basant Swarup.
The selected agency has to entertain applications for the posts on the basis of the eligibility criteria fixed by the Cabinet Secretariat, scrutinise them, prepare their database and conduct the preliminary and final examinations and set the question papers as well as evaluate the answer sheets.
The notice says the agency will have to conduct the examination in the major cities, including cities in the Northeast. It says the bidder should have the capability and resources to undertake scrutiny of applicants and preparation of Database.

A bench headed by Chief Justice R M Lodha said that people with disabilities have not got their due in the last 19 years despite the framing of the Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act, which was passed in 1995.
Additional solicitor general Pinky Anand, appearing for the Centre, contended that reservation cannot be given in case of promotion to Group A and Group B officers category as it is not a case of appointment.
The bench, however, observed that appointment is a broader concept and the Centre is giving a narrow interpretation of it.
"You are frustrating the very reservation policy and cause of class for which Parliament passed the law," the bench said.
"For the last 19 years it is not being implemented and the class, for which the legislation was made, had not got benefited as it should have," the bench said.
The court dismissed the petition of the Centre challenging an order of Bombay high court which had directed the Centre and the Union Public Service Commission to implement 3 per cent quota in direct recruitments and promotions for the disabled in the IAS.
