  • From 2023 year - Modalities for conducting Selections & LDCE through CBT

  • will be issued separately. 


Note: My inference is, that the above reforms are applicable to Accounts Department too.  Why because: 


  • The first one is The letter dated 28.06.2022 clearly specifies all Departments.
  • The second one is The letter dated 28.06.2022 addressed to GMs and kind attention to PFAs & Dy.CAO/Gs
  • along with PCPOs & Dy.CPO/Gs
  • The third one is The letter dated 19.03.2019 (reference letter) addressed to GMs and kind attention
  • to PCPOs & Dy.CPO/Gs,  not addressed to PFAs & Dy.CAO/Gs
  • because it is not applicable to Accounts Department.
