Amaravati: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Friday directed the officials to conduct only written examinations for recruiting into government departments. He also ordered the Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) to do away with the existing system to conduct interviews and ensure transparency in the recruitment process.
According to a statement from the Chief Minister's office, he took the "historic" decision during a review meeting on the proposed annual recruitment calendar for filling vacant government posts.
Following this decision, there will be no interviews for the recruitment to be made from January 2020.
The Chief Minister asked the officials to consider taking the help of the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) to bring more transparency in the conduct of APPSC exams.
