    JTO is a bullshit job not really meant for engineering graduates from good colleges.there is no charm in this job. Pay scale is also low.Scope of next promotion is also not defined.it becomes too long to become divisional engineer which is kind of a good post.So better try for navratna and maharatna PSUs.
