Approaching a gathering at the launch of the e-Book Civil List-2021 of IAS officers, Dr Jitendra Singh mentioned that initially, the government was trying to aim at conducting the CET later in the year for the first time. However, he mentioned that CET has been postponed this year due to the various pandemic situations all over the nation. Thus, the announcement will be made possible from the year 2022. This stands as a strong initiative from the central government sector allowing the most eligible and efficient candidates to sort the seats.
National Recruitment Agency (NRA) to Conduct CET
As per the comment of Dr Jitendra Singh, the National Recruitment Agency which was fixed up with the permission of the Union Cabinet will manage the Common Eligibility Test.

“There will also be a huge benefit to women and Divyang candidates and for those who find it financially affordably to appear for multiple tests by traveling to multiple Centres,” the Union minister added.
Pointing to a series of choices since May 2014, he said that the decision to do away with the time-old tradition of getting certificates attested by a gazetted officer and substituting the same with self-attestation, three-month Central Government stint as Assistant Secretaries for IAS officers at the beginning of their career are far-reaching in nature.
