Odisha Govt Job Recruitment 2020-21

Formerly known Orissa, the state of Odisha lies on the eastern coast of India. Other states such, West Bengal, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, and Andhra Pradesh lie adjacent to its state borders. Another amazing fact about this state is that it has a coastline which stretches for roughly 485 kilometres along the Bay of Bengal.

Odisha also is the 11th largest state in India by population and 8th largest by area. It is divided into 30 districts grouped under three divisions (Behrampur, Sambalpur, and Cuttack) for better governance and administration.

Orissa is a state that is astutely positioned (geographically), bordering other major states and the Bay of Bengal which qualifies it as a major hub of trade, commerce, industrial, and agricultural development. And with a swelling population, the Government in power has to create employment opportunities and raise manpower for better administration of the state.

This leads to the hiring of more personnel for Odisha State govt jobs. To clear your doubts regarding the prospects of Sarkari Naukri Odisha Government has in store for applicants, we’ve prepared a list of FAQs below.

As for the application fee, the amount ranges anywhere upwards of INR 100. But do keep in mind that the amount for any particular Odisha vacancy will not be the same for all candidates. This again must be looked at (before you apply) in the official notifications wherein information regarding varying fee (if any) on the basis of reservation (ST, OBC, SC, PWD), gender (male, female, transgender), nativity and/or residence will be mentioned.

Eligibility criteria for government jobs in Odisha :

Be it for Odisha or any other state, the situation is the same — a government job attracts candidates in hundreds and thousands. And the reason behind such numbers is known to all: job security, stability, promotions, pay hikes, perks, benefits and so on.

The government looks for quality candidates and a huge applicant pool doesn’t necessarily help as the recruitment process can take a long time. This is the reason why bars are set by the hiring authorities from the Odisha government which must be fulfilled by each applicant. 

The logic is simple — clear these bars (or eligibility criteria) to qualify for the Odisha govt job.

Let’s take a look at the various eligibility criteria that can be set for most govt jobs in Odisha 2020-21.

Age limit required for Odisha govt job 2020-21 :

The education prerequisite applies to every job that you apply to. This, of course, changes depending on the department or the designation. Again, the details will be released by the hiring body via an official notification which can be found here.

To give you an idea of what we mean by educational qualification, say that you’re applying to a police job such as Sub-inspector job. In this case, the minimum criteria will be graduation. However, that doesn’t mean that if you are a post-graduate you cannot apply. Anything higher than a graduate will be accepted. On the other hand, anything lower will not.

In this way, the job role you apply to will have educational criteria such as 10th pass, 12th pass, graduation, post-graduation. In some cases, the criteria can even go into the specifics such as graduation (B.E. or B.Tech) in Computer Science. For some jobs, candidates might also be required to furnish training/diploma certifications such as ITI training certificate.

No. of attempts for Odisha government job :

For some vacancies, candidates are shortlisted for the selection process on the basis of the number of attempts. This can also be coupled with any or all of the above-mentioned bars.
