The last date of payment is 10/03/2022. Registration fees are very nominal which is ₹100 for unreserved categories and ₹50 for other categories.


Let's have a glimpse at the exam pattern. There will be 2 Papers, each with 120 questions. For every correct answer, the candidate will be awarded 3 marks and for every incorrect answer, 1/3 marks of that question will be deducted which is -1. In Paper 1, We have 2 sections 1st one is General Engineering which comprises of basics of Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering which is common for all the streams. 2nd Section is General Knowledge which will be asked on the basis of the history and current affairs of Jharkhand and the policies. Now 1st part General Engineering will consist of 80 questions and the second part will consist of 40 questions. In Paper 2, we have 120 Questions from our Specific Domain. So now full marks that can be obtained from Paper 1 and Paper 2 is 120 × 3 + 120 × 3 = 720. Both the papers are equally important. The final merit list will come considering marks scored in both the papers and normalization is also there.

According to the previous year's analysis, if you are scoring less than 40% for the unreserved category, it's hard to say you can get selected for this prestegious service. So prepare well and give your best.
