West Bengal State Government Jobs

The Government of West Bengal has taken various initiatives to boost the state’s economy and growth. To give you an idea of the state’s economy, it’s best to look at some numbers. For instance, did you know that in 2017-18, West Bengal total contribution towards the nation’s GDP was 11.88%? 

The economy of West Bengal is the 6th largest in the country. Of course, one of the major reasons why it constantly finds itself ranked in the top 10 states —  12 growth centres that focus on the growth of medium and large scale organizations.  

But, that’s not all. The State Government of West Bengal has garnered special praise on several occasions for setting up special economic zones. In fact, there are 21 zones in number. But what is the purpose of the “special” economic zones? To invite more investments, drive economic growth, create knowledge parks and so much more. To understand what the government has done to boost the economy of the state and create more jobs, we have to look at some of the major initiatives that have invited investments, making West Bengal a major investment hub for the country and the world.

  • The government has invested in the development of railway links to improve supply chain and infrastructure.
  • The WB Govt plans to improve on its contribution to India’s IT exports. The earmarked figure is around 25%.    
  • Major reformations in the textile policy to develop the sector and boost its contribution to the state’s GDP.
  • To attract FDI and develop knowledge centres, a budget exceeding $ 18 million has been allocated.

As mentioned earlier, the Government of West Bengal is pulling all the stops to develop businesses and industries. So, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the City of Kolkata, which is the capital of West Bengal, is placed amongst the highest paying cities in India time and again. 

We’ll have to pull up numbers again to prove this point. According to salary trend surveys, the average national annual CTC for junior professionals is around INR 5.22 lakh. Kolkata surpassed this figure, by offering an average CTC amounting to INR 5.72 LPA. So, one could say that for freshers and entry-level candidates, Kolkata holds great promise. It’s an ideal place to unearth career opportunities that pay really well. As for mid-level professionals, Kolkata offered an average annual CTC of INR 9.3 LPA whereas senior-level professionals bagged INR 23.7 LPA.

As candidates looking for the latest WB Govt jobs, now is a good time as any to apply for vacancies. The government has taken many initiatives and several businesses have blossomed which have resulted in the creation of many jobs.

About West Bengal Public Service Commission (WBPSC)

Ever heard of the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC)? It’s a commission headed by the Central GOI. The responsibility of this commission is to ensure that notifications for Central Government jobs in West Bengal are released on time. In other words, you could say that they control the hiring and recruitment of candidates for Sarkari Naukri in West Bengal.

But, you’d be mistaken to consider that UPSC is the only commission under the Central Government of India that hires and recruits. There is a Staff Selection Commission (SSC) as well that that releases other job notifications that aren’t handled by the UPSC.

So, just like the UPSC and SSC, there are commissions set up by the various state governments. And like the aforementioned Central recruitment boards, each state-level commission shoulders the responsibility of finding candidates for any new govt job in West Bengal 2020-21. Basically, they release recruitment details and notifications for all openings in various state-level departments. 

In West Bengal, the commission is known as West Bengal Public Service Commission (WBPSC). WBPSC recruitment 2020-21 is conducted regularly to find candidates for Civil Services. Having said that, the commission also gets involved in other WBPSC Recruitment 2020-21 drives.

To fill a BPSC vacancy 2020-21 recruitment drives are organized to invite applicants for various state-level organizations, departments, schools, colleges, and institutions.

Let’s take a look at some of the examinations conducted by WBPSC. Bear in mind that any notifications for applications, exam, syllabus, merit lists, WBPSC Sarkari results can be found on Aasaanjobs.

Sought-After Sarkari Jobs in West Bengal - Jobs & Eligibility Criteria

West Bengal is one of the major states of India that contributes to its ever- rising GDP. However, on an individual level, it’s estimated that the state grows at an annual rate of 16%. What’s more, it has a recorded GDP that surpasses the USD 150 Billion mark. It also has the 6th largest economy in the country. 

One could not have guessed that West Bengal has overshadowed other states of India when it comes to economic growth. Much of the credit goes to its efforts in improving its economic and social indicators. The state is also a consumer hub. You could say that being strategically located does have its perks. Consumers spread across Asia, particularly from countries, such as Bhutan, Nepal, Bangladesh flock to West Bengal. Furthermore, the state is also an economic corridor for other major South-East Asian countries.

West Bengal is also renowned for its produce. It leads the way in the production of jute, rice, and tea. We hope you’re already familiar with West Bengal’s tea that is exported all across the world, especially Darjeeling Tea. Strategically located and blessed with the right climatic conditions and topography, West Bengal thrives on horticulture, agriculture, and fisheries. 

Speaking of its strategic location, it borders states like Odisha, Jharkhand, and Bihar which are also blessed with plenty of resources. Such proximity to resource-rich states has aided in the development of railway networks, ports, harbours, docks, and highways which in turn has boosted economic growth in all the states and the region.

Perhaps no place in West Bengal attracts the eye more than Kolkata. The city is a cultural, educational and commercial hub for East India. Businesses often mushroom in this city more than anywhere else in the country as the operational costs and cost of living is lower. No wonder why the State of West Bengal, or rather Kolkata, attracts a lot of commercial traction than any other city in the country.

What is the scale of commercial traction in West Bengal? Well, the state is home to a large number of factories, manufacturing plants, and enterprises. In fact, West Bengal is known to be the second-largest state in the country in terms of the number of MSMEs.

Industrial growth has always been a mainstay in this state. One can find industries, such as textile, metal, leather, manufacturing and more in the State of West Bengal. As for the government job opportunities, here are a few roles that you can expect that are created by the Central GOI and the State Government of WB.

Since a number of vacancies are created by the Central Government of India and the State Government of WB, there will be many who will be vying for a job. Even though the jobs are aplenty in this state and there is a wealth of candidates, the government cannot possibly accept all the applicants.

Whenever a vacancy in West Bengal pops up, many candidates line up to bag the role. This, for the government or the recruitment board, is problematic as the role needs to be fulfilled quickly. To shrink the talent pool, the hiring authority sets eligibility criteria. Mind you, the criteria to lessen the number of candidates will not be the same for all jobs.

There will be variations in the criteria, but going by the West Bengal Government recruitment history, the following three are the most likely:  

  • The Criteria for Minimum and Maximum Age

Of course, age is another criterion which must be met by the candidates. Usually, for WB jobs, the minimum age for qualification is set at 18 years. However, the upper age limit could vary, depending on the job role and the notification. 

Another point about the age limit that you need to keep in mind is the relaxation. It’s nothing but the upper age limit being relaxed by the hiring authority on the basis of the candidate’s reservation status: ST, SC, OBC, PWD, Ex-servicemen etc.

  • Educational Background for West Bengal Jobs

The applying candidates must fulfil the educational background criteria. In the official notification, the recruitment board conducting the selection will ask applying candidates to produce proof that they’re either 10th pass, 12th pass, graduate, or a postgraduate. These can be mark sheets, pass certificates, or both from a recognised university or institute.

For candidates who possess a basic education but have undergone some form of training or education, the certificate or diploma has to be furnished. If your education or training meets the minimum educational qualification mentioned in the notification for the job, you then move on to the next criteria.

While the two mentioned above are the most crucial, the recruitment board or commission might include other criteria such as the number of attempts, relevant work experience, physical fitness, police clearance, marital status and so on.

West Bengal Govt Jobs Recruitment Process

The recruitment process is not the same for all WB government jobs. It will solely depend on the hiring authority. As you must’ve figured by now, the details of the recruitment process will be given in the official notifications. The selection process will also hinge on the number of candidates who are applying and the number of posts. Since the posts cannot stay vacant for long, the authority conducting the recruitment might have just a few stages that make up the process. For high-level job roles, the process might be even longer. 

From information retrieved from notifications and recruitment in the past, we gather that the process will comprise (in no particular order) the following:

  • Preliminary Examination
  • Interview
  • Physical Standard Test
  • Group Discussion (GD)
  • Skill Test
  • Screening Test (Computer Based Test/ Offline Exam)
  • Mains Examination
  • Trade Test
  • Written Examination
  • Document Verification
  • Medical Test
  • Physical Measurement Test

Perks of Being a Govt Employee in WB

Government jobs are always a hot topic. And for good reason; they offer job security, good pay, promotions, and a host of other allowances and perks that you wouldn’t get from a private job. For WB government jobs, the probable benefits are:

  • Leave fare and Leave travel allowances
  • PF and pension benefits
  • Housing loans
  • Medical benefits
  • Promotions
  • Personal advances
  • Accommodation
  • Scholarships and educational loans
  • Paid leaves

A word of advice: the candidate must read the notifications here on Aasaanjobs or on the official portals before applying. It will contain details about the salary, allowance and other perks. Also, remember that all government jobs will not have the same employee benefits.

  • How do I get my WBPSC Admit Card 2020-21?

As for your admit card, the commission should mail it to your registered email address atleast 2-3 weeks before the examination date. Sometimes, the commission also releases a notification specifically mentioning the link and the process to download the admit card. If there is a link or a notification mentioning it, you’ll find the information in the “Important Links” tab on Aasaanjobs.

In case you do not receive your admit card, contact the concerned authority at the earliest. If you’re downloading it from a source, or an email with your admit card as an attachment has been mailed to you, we suggest you print the hard copy first and save a few soft copies on your hard drive or the cloud.

  • Can the details in the application form that has already been submitted be changed?

Possibly. There have been instances in the past where hiring authorities have given candidates the time (after submission of the final application or the expiration of the application deadline) to edit their application. In case this happens, an official notification should be released. If there is no notification for editing of the application form, then you must visit their official portal on a daily basis and look for any announcements and alerts on their notice board.

If there is no alert, announcement or notification, then we suggest you contact the hiring authority at the earliest with your query.
