3.          In pursuance  of above, DoPT,  with the approval of competent authority has worked out the following modalities –


(a)       NIC will develop a  website Integrated Information System for Public Recruitment Agencies;
(b)       Web-site  will  have  links to  various recruiting  agency’s  own web pages;
(c)       Each recruiting agency will develop its own web page.  The Home page will  display the details of the recruitment examinations undertaken by them in the past one year and the date of announcement of the final results.
(d)       The  user  can  click  on the  appropriate  examination  and  then  a Search  Page  will  be  displayed.    The  Search  Page will  include display  of details  of candidate alongwith their  rankings and their scores in descending order of rankings.  However, search can also specify name of candidates or any specific range of rankings which will then by displayed.

(II)       The following details of each candidate will be made available:-

(a)      Name of the candidate

(b)      Father/Husband’s  name

(c)      Date of Birth

(d)      Category (Gen/SC/ST/OBC/PH/Minority)

(e)      Male/Female/Transgender

(f)      Educational Qualifications

(g)      Total Marks obtained in the qualifying examination

(III)     The few disclaimers which will have to be clearly put up on the web- portal developed by NIC as well as on the websites of recruiting agencies:-

(i)        The authenticity of the data displayed by recruiting agency will be the responsibility of the concerned agency.

(ii)       If any other private/public agency undertakes recruitment based on the data/ information  so disclosed, the DoPT/concerned  Ministry/ Department or the recruiting agency will not be responsible for any legal matter emanating out of such process.

(iii)       The   concerned   recruiting   agencies   are   responsible   for   the sanctity/integrity  of the process which will be followed by them.

(iv)      Any queries/RTI related to the scores/rankings will be dealt by the PIO of the concerned Recruiting Agency.

(v)       Any   query/RTI   request   related  to   recruitment   undertaken   by concerned agency using this data/information will be responsibility of the concerned agency undertaking such recruitment.

(IV)     As approved  by the Government,  the candidates will have the option to opt out of the disclosure scheme.   The option of opting out will have to be taken at the time of filing up the application. This, thus further indicates that the actual implementation   can   be  done   only  on  those   examinations   for which  the application forms will be invited in future.  Seeking option from candidates during the process of conduct of examination may neither be practical nor feasible.

4.        Accordingly,  D/o Electronics and Information Technology is requested to develop a Central Web  Portal through  NIC and in consultation with  DoPT. All concerned Ministries/Departments/Recruiting   Agencies  are requested to make necessary arrangements and linking their websites as explained above.
