Audi said a total of 1,477,042 applicants applied in 2019 but the number was reduced to 746,762 when some applicants did not meet up with the specified requirements.

He said, “A total of 217,000 candidates successfully uploaded their certificates and were shortlisted for the Computer-Based Assessment Test.

“Out of 113,105 candidates shortlisted, 53,116 sat for the CBT in December 2020 across the country and 6,500 were shortlisted for further screening,” he said.

According to the CG, the recruitment exercise lingered till 2022 due to the emergence of COVID-19 and the need for proper vetting of the candidates.

“Recruitment is a process and it is not easy to vet over one million people as vetting is very fundamental to the process and takes a longer time,” he said.
