Given the pandemic, West Bengal Public Service Commission has decided to hold online personality test for appointments to the posts of 2018 WBCS C & D groups, which are meant for appointing co-operative inspectors and labour department officers.
Amid the lockdown the PSC has asked the candidates to reach the office of respective district magistrates for the online interview that will be held through video conferencing. A PSC official said the interview was earlier scheduled to be held on March 23 and 24. “But as the lockdown was clamped at that time, the interview could not be held. As the Covid situation has not improved much, the PSC has decided to go for the virtual interview mode, using the networks of the DMs,” said the official.
Already the PSC had done the test run for the virtual interview of four days from July 13 to 16, an official said. Keeping in mind the technical snags that might crop up during the interview, technical experts would be there in the room with the candidates.
Debashis Bose, chairman of PSC said this is for the first time that online interview will be conducted, so efforts are on to make it error free. “Only an IT expert will be there in the video-conference room. But the expert will have to maintain a distance from the candidate.”
