After finalization of answer key, the OMR answer sheets of the candidates who appeared in the Screening Test shall be scanned in the OMR Scanner and evaluated by using the final / revised answer key to prepare a category-wise zone of consideration in the ratio of 1:6 + 3 i.e. six times plus three in proportion to the number of post(s) advertised on the basis of performance of the candidates in the Screening Test, to check their eligibility by the Branch responsible for making direct recruitment on the basis of documents uploaded by them on the OTRS portal/ submitted by them on the day of screening test.
