DCA is not required for Secretariat assistant
TVM:The Public Service Commission has decided to repeal the decision mandating Diploma in Computer Application (DCA) an essential qualification for the Secretariat assistant’s post. Though the order said that amendments would be made in the special rules for including DCA, no steps had been taken so far. In the wake of the latest decision, the changes in the qualification would not be valid anymore. Earlier, the government had urged the commission to give more time to the applicants to acquire the DCA certificate. After a flood of requests, the government said the applicants should be given time to acquire the qualification till the commission verified the certificates.
