Govt. Jobs for engineers in different Central Government Organizations
In our country every year there are millions of students who are completing their BE/BTech courses and from our state itself almost 2 lakh students are completing their engineering course every year and entering into the job market. But many of them are not having proper awareness about the jobs being offered in the state or central government for the engineering students. So in this scenario let us checkout the employment opportunities available for the BE/BTech candidates in the government organizations and the qualifications required to apply for those jobs on completing their course.
Jobs for Civil, Computer, Electrical and Mechanical Engineers in Maharatna, Navaratna and Miniratna companies…..
Every engineering student dreams about getting a job in the Maharatna and Navaratna companies as one can get best remuneration in the starting of the career as well as other facilities to reach a top position in their career. To those who have completed their BE/BTech course have many job opportunities in the central government Maharatna, Navaratna and Miniratna companies. But for recruiting almost all the companies take the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) score as a standard and along with that based on the company some may also conduct group discussion and interview to fill the entry level vacancies (Trainee engineer/ Junior engineer). To apply for these jobs one should have completed their engineering course with a good percentage of marks else should be in their final year. There is also an age limit to apply for these jobs and to the specified job one should not cross the age limit. Moreover, one should also have applied for the Gate examination. But most of the jobs in these companies are available for Civil/Mechanical/Electrical/Electronic core branches only.

Engineering graduates have so many opportunities in Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO), BABA atomic research center (BARC), Department of Biotechnology (DBT), department of science and technology (DST), Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), and Department of Space so on. Let us see the details….
Entrance into BARC through GATE
BARC under the central government offers many scientist level jobs to the enthusiasts taking GATE score as a standard. For this it has started a special training school. First it shortlists candidates based on the GATE score for entering into the training school and those on completion of training in the specific duration shall be appointed as scientists in their BARC center. Right now two training schemes are being offered.
For the engineering graduates and science post graduates an orientation course is offered for duration of 1 year: Those candidates who finish the training course with at least 50% marks shall be taken as scientific officer in different units of the atomic center.
DAE graduate fellowship program for engineering graduates and physics post graduates is also being offered: Those who are able to get seats in M.Tech or ME (chemical) in the institutes recognized by the center shall get their tuition fee and stipend being paid by BARC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhabha_Atomic_Research_Centre). For these candidates job is guaranteed in the DAE. As soon as these candidates complete their first year post graduate study should do their internship in different departments of the atomic center.
Pay and allowances: Candidates appointed in BARC through GATE will get good pay packages. The salary offered by BARC is not less than any pay and allowance offered by other PSU. As the 7th Pay Commission is to be declared in 2016 and the 7th Pay Commission Pay Scales (http://www.7th-paycommission.com/2013/10/pay-structure.html) in BARC is also expected to be very high.
