PSU Recruitment is one of the dreams of Engineering Graduates. Recruitment through GATE Exam Score was started by some PSU in 2012 and after that many PSUs announced GATE score to be mandatory for recruitment of graduate engineers at entry level. In 2017, more than 40 PSUs accepted GATE score for their recruitment purposes.
Some of the prominent PSUs like ONGC, BHEL, HPCL, BSNL, WBSEDCL, PowerGrid, MDL, GAIL, etc. recruit engineering graduates through GATE scores. While the different PSUs release their recruitment notification separately, a candidate must have a valid and good GATE score card to be considered for recruitment and apply them separately. The recruitment application process for a majority of the PSUs is online.
The total number of vacancies in PSU that are filled through GATE score is huge; for instance, BSNL hired a record-setting 2,510 GATE candidates this year. The list of all PSUs that have plans to hire through GATE 2018 has been compiled below on this page.
