However, such candidates are immediately required to give due intimation to their employer regarding the details of the DRDO posts to which they have applied, requesting the employer to communicate to RAC directly (in case of any objection) within 30 days of the deadline for applying to the DRDO post(s). To this effect, a declaration (Please see Para 3(vi) for details) is to be uploaded by the candidate that he/she has intimated their employer that they have applied for a post in DRDO.

6.     Points to be considered while filling Application form

·        The GATE/NET paper and the subject of qualifying degree of the candidates must be as per the discipline-wise table provided (Table 1)

·        Candidates are advised to be careful while filling their GATE score (for Part I & II disciplines) / percentage of marks in NET (for Part III discipline), as the short listing will be based on the same filled in the application form.

·        The scrutiny of application will only be done for those candidates who are above the cut off of GATE score / cut-off of percentage of marks in NET, as per the norms of shortlisting specified in the advertisement. A wrongly filled GATE score or wrongly filled percentage of marks in NET may automatically result in candidate not getting shortlisted for scrutiny purposes also.

·  RAC will be verifying the GATE and NET scores of the applicants, and if the verification requires any additional information at a later stage (apart from the information sought on the application form), the same will be asked from the candidate. Failing to furnish the required information when asked will make their candidature liable for cancellation.
