The Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL) conducted an online exam for recruitment of 1,957 substation assistant posts on Sunday. The exam was conducted only in Marathi.
  • A whopping 24,964 candidates from across the state have applied for the posts against an advertisement published in March. The list of candidates who have successfully applied for the post is available on the website.
  • MSEDL said admission will be provisional subject to satisfying the eligibility criteria and verification of eligibility conditions with reference to documents only after the candidate has qualified in the online test and prior to issue of offer letter.
  • Candidates, who have completed Inter/Class 12 or equivalent from a recognised board and belong to the age group of 18 and 27 as on March 25 are eligible for the posts.
  • The online exam of 90 marks was conducted for two hours.  There will be a penalty for wrong answers marked. For each wrong answer one fourth of the marks assigned will be deducted.
  • The responses of one candidate will be analysed with other candidates to detect patterns of similarity of right and wrong answers. If in the analytical procedure adopted in this regard, it is inferred/concluded that the responses have been shared and scores obtained are not genuine/valid, candidature may be cancelled. 
  • If the examination is held in more than one session, the scores across various sessions will be equated to adjust for slight differences in difficulty level of different test batteries used across sessions. More than one session are required if the nodes capacity is less or some technical disruption takes place at any centre or for any candidate.
  • Mere passing the online exam is not sufficient for bagging a post , said MSEDL in a handout published before exam.  The posts will be assigned to the eligible candidates on the basis of the rank they acquire after the assessment of the technical ability test.
  • MSEDL is a public sector Undertaking (PSU) under Government of Maharashtra and is the second largest electricity distribution utility in the world after State Grid Corporation of China.
