Why SSC Stenographer Recruitment is an easy Exam?

Dear Aspirants, you might wonder as to why we termed SSC Stenographer Exam as an easy exam. Well, here we are explaining this. SSC Stenographer Selection Process has a single Online Test followed by Skill Test. Now for the same pay scale and for other less popular department postings, you all shall have to appear for more rigorous exams in SSC Combined Higher Secondary Level (CHSL) Examination. Secondly, the number of applicants for this Examination is less, thus making this exam a less competitive one. Thirdly the Examination is open for candidates who are not graduate, only applicants who have passed 10+2 Examination can appear for this Recruitment.

Stenographer Group C/D Career opportunities after selection

Stenographer Group C Posts carries higher pay scale with Grade Pay of Rs 4200/- & 4600/- and are posted mostly in different ministries. On promotion, they are selected as Private Secretary / Personal Secretary which is a highly responsible post in the concerned Ministry. But here we are stressing on Stenographer Group D Posts, as we already said every aspirant should sit for this exam at least, this time. As a Stenographer Group D, selected candidates will be posted as Junior Stenographer in a Govt. Department. But Stenographer being a special cadre opens up the promotion opportunities for this cadres especially. This can be illustrated through an example below-

Let us assume that you have been selected as Stenographer in the Income Tax Department or Central Board of Indirect Tax, after three years of service; you can appear for IT Inspector Exam through Departmental Exam. The same promotion rule is applicable in CBI, aspirants selected in CBI can become a CBI Inspector through Departmental Exam very soon. Now if somebody thinks of Departmental Exam to be very competitive. We can’t believe that as you all have been preparing hard to crack pan India level competitive Exams, hence clearing Departmental Exams should not bother you all.
