Public sector insurance companies to do mass recruitment after two decades

 The much awaited requirement of the union of four public sector insurance companies is about to be fulfilled. These four public sector insurance companies viz: National Insurance, New India Assurance, Oriental Insurance and United India Insurance have decided to hire a total of 2,600 employees at an assistant cadre level. Union was demanding the appointment of fresh people for many years.

This collective decision was taken as between the year 2013 – 2015 around 40% of Class III / clerical cadre level employees are expected to go off. Out of the above 2,600 recruitments, 800 will be appointed by National Insurance while other three will appoint 600 each. Last major employment was done during the period 1977 – 1980 when the segment was publicly owned. 
The eligibility criteria for a prospective employee will be Graduate or 12th Standard pass with minimum 60% marks (relaxation to 50% in case of schedule cast, schedule tribe, physically disabled people and ex – servicemen). The candidate should be minimum 18 years of age and maximum entry age will be 28 years, subject to relaxation for schedule caste, schedule tribe, physically disabled and ex servicemen. The candidate should also have the knowledge of the regional language.
