PSU Exams - List of Upcoming Exams

PSU stands for Public Sector Undertakings in India. The PSU sectors are otherwise called Government-owned enterprises, Government-owned Corporations, Nationalized companies, or statutory corporations. PSU is the company that holds the share of both the State government and Central government. The share can be partly or wholly hold by both the Central and State government. In most cases, the Central government holds 51% of its share in PSU companies. PSU recruitment happens frequently in all sectors.

There are two types of PSU sector namely, Central PSU and State PSU. However, based on the yield of revenue, PSU is further segregated into three categories, namely,

  • Maharatna
  • Navratna
  • Miniratna

Miniratna is further classified into Miniratna I and Miniratna II.

The vacancies in PSU are filled through the various recruitment process. The candidates are selected for the Group A, Group B, and Group C level posts. These levels have job roles of Junior Engineer, Apprentices, Assistants, Officers, Medical Officers Accountants, and so on. The highest officials in the PSU sector are also given the “Gazetted officer” status, which is one of the prestigious statuses for Indian candidates.

The vacancies in PSU jobs are filled with GATE scores, but some public sector companies do not ask for GATE scores from the candidates. GATE is nothing but a “Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering”. GATE scores are necessary for the Engineering level posts, but for Non-Engineering posts such as Clerical, office assistants, etc., the selection process varies. PSU recruitment without GATE scores will have to go through various selection processes such as Aptitude, Group Discussion, Personal Interview, and so on.
