Hit by recession, more job seekers turn to DRDO

With job losses caused by economic recession in various sectors, DRDO is turning out to be a destination of primary choice among young job seekers as the premier defence organisation received a whooping 1.13 lakh applications for the Scientist Entry Test held recently.

The applications were received in response to an advertisement in May for 220 posts in the Defence Research and Development Organisation, the R&D wing of the ministry of defence, a release said here today.

More than 70 per cent of the applicants appeared for the examination conducted on September 6 this month at 139 centres in 31 cities, it said.

For the test held in September last year to induct 500 scientists, only 43,215 had applied.
