What are PSUs?

Before we talk about PSU recruitment through GATE 2024, let’s take a look at what PSUs are. Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) is a government-owned corporation in which 51% or more of the paid share capital is held by the central or state government. Apart from the GATE score, for PSU recruitment, there may also be a written exam and personal interview to shortlist candidates as a part of the selection process.

All the PSUs recruit candidates as Engineer Trainee (ET) on the basis of the GATE score and this is followed by GD and interview. Therefore, GATE plays a very important role in PSU recruitment.

Why do PSUs hire basis GATE scores?

  • A career in the PSU sector requires understanding and in-depth knowledge of engineering principles. GATE is one of the exams which tests technical knowledge and the general aptitude of the candidates.

  • GATE scores are not prone to manipulation as it is computer-based exam. The results are unbiased that way and it is considered to be a reliable exam.

PSU Recruitment through GATE began in 2012 and initially, only a few PSUs were a part of the recruitment process but now that trend has changed and many PSUs have become a part of it.
