With respect to above it is stated in order to reduce the extent of subjectivity to the maximum possible and to expedite the selection process, interviews were dispensed with in almost all of the categories since 1999 (including, JAAS) Copy of Board’s letter dated 18.09.1999 (RBE No.56/99) issued to the effect is enclosed for reference. It is therefore requested that the matter as has also been discussed in the Federation’s PNM as item no.10/2017 may kindly be closed.
