19 August 2020 Current Affairs:The Union Cabinet headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi approved the setting up of the National Recruitment Agency (NRA). The aim is to pave the way for a transformational reform in the recruitment process for central government jobs.

National Recruitment Agency (NRA):
♦ NRA will conduct a Common Eligibility Test (CET) to screen/shortlist candidates for Group B and C which is for non-technical posts. 
♦ NRA will have representatives of Ministry of Railways, Department of Financial Services of the Ministry of Finance, the Staff Selection Commission (SSC), the Railway Recruitment Boards (RRBs) and the Institute of Banking Service Personnel (IBPS).
♦ It is expected that the NRA would be a specialist body bringing state-of-the-art technology and best practices to the field of Central Government recruitment.

The move comes as, currently, the candidates seeking government jobs have to appear for separate examinations conducted by multiple recruiting agencies for various posts, for which similar eligibility conditions have been prescribed. With the introduction of NRA, a common eligibility Test will enable the candidates to appear once and apply to any or all of these recruitment agencies for the higher level of examination. This will provide major relief to all the candidates.
