New Delhi: The Indian job market has not
been as adversely affected by global recession as was being
presumed, thanks to "job increase" in the public sector, UPSC
Chairman D P Agrawal said here on Monday.

He said the quantum of job loss witnessed in the
private sector was made good by creation of more jobs in the
public sector.

"Compared to last year, the indent from Government to
us was 1.4 times more this year," he said at a function here,
adding, it indicated that "there was enough happening in the
nation," and that India was not fully dependent on global
trends.

Agrawal was speaking at the 36th foundation day of
Agriculture Scientists Recruitment Board (ASRB), where he also
lauded the board`s efficient way of recruitment without
attracting any litigation.

He said the greatest challenge before them today was
"maintaining high level of transparency and professionalism"
in recruitment. In this regard, he also sought development of
a mechanism which adequately addresses several issues like
retaining talents.

ASRB has decided to soon introduce online examination
system for recruitment of agriculture research scientists.
"This will be a Rs 30 crore project and we have got
the approval for introducing the system," chairman of ASRB C D
Mayee said.
