Interview call for cops-to-be

Over 1,200 candidates have been shortlisted to appear for interviews for the post of sub-inspectors after results of a written examination were declared by DGP G.S. Rath on Thursday.

Rath said the recruitment process for 384 posts of sub-inspectors had started with the publication of an advertisement in 2008. The physical test was held in 2009 and as many as 13,166 candidates were selected for the written exam. However, 12,086 turned up for the test, which was held this year and 1,217 were selected for the interview.

Of the 1,217 who have made it to the interview stage, 604 are from general category, while 184 belong to backward castes (BC), 126 Scheduled Caste (SC) and 303 Scheduled Tribes (ST).

“The cut-off marks for selection under general category was 63.4 per cent while for BC, SC and ST, it 59.5 per cent, 54 per cent and 52 per cent, respectively,” Rath said.

“The date of the interview has not been announced yet. It is difficult to say when the results will be declared,” added Rath. This is the first time since the creation of the state that such a recruitment drive has been organised.
