PSU Jobs for Civil Engineers through GATE 2021

When you look at India’s economy, you realize that it’s service driven. Most of the jobs in the private sector are in the service industry. This benefits those who have an MBA, a commerce degree, an arts degree or even computer engineers.

Opportunities for Civil Engineers in the private sector are few. However, Civil Engineers have plenty of opportunities in Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs). For those who are unfamiliar, PSUs are those organizations which are at least 51% owned by the government. Examples are companies like ONGC, IOCL, NTPC etc.

Such organizations recruit Civil Engineers. Over the past few years, over 50 PSUs have recruited students through the GATE exam. One needs to note that not all these 50 PSUs recruit students each year. There are 8 PSUs that have confirmed or might recruit Civil Engineers through GATE 2021. The details are in the table below:

  1. The list mentioned above is as of 27th February 2021. More PSUs might get added to this list as time passes.
  2. The salary listed above is the base pay. PSUs offer additional compensation like Dearness Allowance, Travel Allowance, Food Reimbursement, House Rental Allowance etc . over and above this pay. Many also have annual bonuses and performance-based bonuses.
  3. The weightage given to the GATE exam depends on the PSU. Some PSUs use GATE only as a qualifying criterion to select applicants for the interview and once applicants appear for the interview, they are only judged on their interview performance. On the other hand, other PSUs give 70% weight to the GATE score, 15% to the Group Discussion / Group Task and 15% weightage to the Personal Interview.
  4. The Personal Interview generally consists of a mix between behavioural and technical questions.
  5. The GATE cutoffs for reserved categories (SC / ST / OBC) is lower than that for general category. Further, there are also age limit and academic eligibility relaxations for applicants from reserved categories. For exact information, candidates are encouraged to visit the individual PSU websites.
