According to a New announcement by TNPSC(Tamilnadu Public Service Commission), the Group IV and VAO Examinations are combined and conducted as TNPSC CCSE 4 from this year onwards.The reasons are explained in below.
TNPSC CCSE 4 Exam Details:
TNPSC VAO Exam: TNPSC VAO Examination is conducted by the Tamilnadu Public Service Commission for Every year to recruit the Village Administrative Officers(VAO) for the village across the Tamilnadu.Candidates who passed/completed 10th/SCLC can apply for this position.Candidates who possessed higher education also able to attend this examination
TNPSC Group-4 Exam: TNPS Group 4 Examination conducted for various vacancies available in Tamilnadu Govt Offices in the Assistant Cadre.The candidates who passed this exam will be posted in TN Govt offices without any interview.It is direct non-interview post.Candidates who completed the SSLC/10th qualification in Govt of Tamil Nadu can apply for this position.
Reasons for Combining VAO & Group 4 into TNPSC CCSE 4:
Every year there are more than 15 Lakhs people applying for Group -IV examination and more than 12 Lakhs people applying for VAO Exam.while analysing the candidates there are 60% of people applying for both the examination.Because this two examination has common eligibility criteria(SSLC completed candidates can apply)
If TNPSC conducts these exams separately there are 15 Crore rupees spend by the Govt to conduct these exams.Also, there are many other things involved like the huge number of Exam Supervisors and candidates need to pay the examination fees two times and another department like Revenue Department, School Education Department, Police Department also suffered a lot in this.
If they conduct the exam separate people are choosing the Job which they are passed.But they may interest in other Job(VAO/Assistant).So 20% of people are leaving the Job/changing the position after the Joining.So the TNPSC need to conduct the exam again to fill those backlog vacancies.So its wasting TNPSC time and also the candidates time.
For the above-mentioned Reasons, the TNPSC decided to conduct the exam in the name of TNPSC CCSE 4 by combining both examinations.The Exam notification will be released soon so candidates who interested to attend can start their preparation.
