Bhubaneswar: The Odisha Public Service Commission (OPSC) in collaboration with National Informatics Centre (NIC) has launched its new web portal to enhance transparency and accountability in the recruitment process.

The new web portal (www.opsc.gov.in) supporting Comprehensive Selection Management System (CSMS) will upgrade the existing application management system and provide a platform to link all the stake holders like candidates, government departments and the examination conducting authorities with the OPSC to ensure seamless flow and exchange of information, queries, compliance and grievances, said a press note issued by the OPSC on Wednesday.

The CSMS will facilitate job aspirants of the State to register their interest to apply for various posts in government department. A unique Permanent Public Service Account Number (PPSAN) will be assigned to an applicant on first time registration for a post and his/her personal data is stored for making subsequent applications for other posts advertised by the Commission.

The new system will reportedly help the Commission accomplish all recruitment related activities starting from receiving online requisitions from the government departments, advertisement management, receiving online applications from job aspirants, scrutiny of received applications, online question bank management, examination centres and logistics management, evaluation management including enrolment and selection of examiners, assessment of answer scripts, online document verification, and publication of Merit & Select Lists and recommending successful candidates to the Requisitioning/Appointing Departments for appointment.

Besides, the CSMS has inbuilt audit and scrutiny system to ensure robustness and lack of interference from other agencies. The Commission further said that the technological initiative will reduce the entire recruitment process time to a great extent and enhance the transparency, accountability and delivery time substantially.

Moreover, the Commission has decided to launch a mobile app to provide many important CSMS functionalities to the stakeholders on the move, it added.
