SSC form DoP & T's O.M.No. 39020 /1/2016
“Do you want to make available your personal information” option in SSC forms
1. While filling forms like SSC (Staff Selection Commission) many of us came across this term ->
DoP & T’s O.M.No. 39020 /1/2016-Estt.(B) and it asks us whether we want to provide our private information or not. Moreover, the statement is sometimes like this “Do you want to make available your personal Information for the accessing job opportunity in terms of DoP & T’s O.M.No. 39020 /1/2016-Estt.(B) dated 21.06.2016 ?”
2. DoP & T's O.M.No. 39020 /1/2016 stands for -
Department of Personnel and Training , Office Memorandum number – 39020 /1/2016.
That is to say, it is a written notice by Indian government which says that Government has approved the proposal of NITI Aayog.
The proposal is to make scores and ranking of candidates publicly available in recruitment examinations for increasing job opportunities for unemployed.
In other words, if you allow this, your marks and rank of the exam will be displayed publicly in future, so, anybody can see it.
3. Following additional details of the candidates will also be displayed with score:-
(a) Name of the candidate
(b) Father/Husband’s name
(c) Date of Birth
(d) Category (Gen/SC/ST/OBC/PH/Minority)
(f) Educational Qualifications
(g) Total Marks obtained in the qualifying examination
(h) Rankings by which the merit is decided
(i) Complete address
(j) E-mail address
4. Benefit of selecting 'Yes'
The real question is What is the benefit of clicking yes to ” Do you want to make available your personal Information for the accessing job opportunity in terms of DoP & T’s O.M.No. 39020 /1/2016-Estt.(B) dated 21.06.2016 “.
By clicking yes , all the other recruiting agencies like UPSC, SSC, RRB etc. shall also be able to see your results and hence can make your entry to their jobs or post if you qualify.
However, is not officially said anywhere in the letter.
The official words on the website -> “Government has approved the proposal of NITI Aayog for making available publicly scores and ranking of candidates in recruitment examinations through portal for increasing access of the unemployed to job opportunities.”
5. Loss of selecting 'Yes'
Well, Clearly most of the people reading this post will not like sharing all this personal information publicly.
Therefore, if you like privacy more, than choose no. Above all, personal Information is called personal for a reason.
6. So, What to do if you don't understood any of that:-
So, if you are not understanding what to do, just select ‘NO’ and proceed.
In short, If you like your privacy and don’t want your exam result and personal information to be publicly available, select ‘No’.
However, if you badly need a job and personal information isn’t that big issue for you, go ahead and select ‘YES’.
Note :- We have made this post just to make you aware of the term, but not to the actual procedure because it is still unclear.
