Selection Process

Selection will be done on the basis of merit list. The merit list will be prepared separately for NON-ITI and EX-ITI category. The merit list for NON-ITI category will be prepared factory-wise on the basis of the overall percentage of marks in madhyamik or matriculation (Class X standard or equivalent), aggregate in all subjects and irrespective of Board. For NON-ITI category, a factory – wise common merit list will be prepared and the trades will be allotted by each factory on Meritcum-choice basis after selection.

The Merit List for Ex-ITI category will be prepared factory-wise and trade-wise, on the basis of simple average of the percentage of marks both in Matriculation and ITI (minimum 50% in aggregate in each). For the purpose of calculation of the percentage of matriculation, marks obtained by the candidates in all subjects will be taken to account and for calculation of the percentage of ITI marks, marks mentioned in provisional/final certificate will be taken.

The aggregate marks obtained by the candidates in Madhyamik (Class X or equivalent) shall be considered irrespective of Board / Exam System and shall be considered as per percentage formula of that Board / Exam System only.

Based on the vacancy position, select lists will be prepared and only provisionally selected candidates will be called for document verification and medical examination.

For the preparation of merit list, in case of two candidates having the same marks/percentage (tie case), the candidates with older age shall be preferred. If the dates of birth are also the same, then the candidates who passed Matriculation examination earlier (Year) shall be considered first. Even if the Year of passing of Matriculation examination is same, the candidate name in alphabetical order appearing first will be considered first.

Utmost care shall be taken while finalizing the select list of eligible candidates. In case of any mistake or error by oversight or otherwise, OFRC reserves the right to take action to revise the select list of eligible candidates, as deemed fit, at any point of time and in this regard the decision of OFRC/ Ordnance and Ordnance Equipment Factories shall be final.
