    This is in response to Saswati Ghosh’s query dated 22nd June, 2012. There is no limiation of age and experience as it is contractual job. You may probably be aware that for contractual jobs, age and experience criteria are not that important. However, all appointment is over. CBi took altogether 71 stenographers on contract basis throughout India and 6 in Kolkata. They gave advertisement in Website only long back. However, please give me your email id so that I can let you know if any other opportunity comes to my notice. My email id is : [email protected] Thanks

    Sir, I have got a contractual job of Stenographer in CBI, Kolkata from 20th Feb, 2012 along with others for Special Courts in Kolkata. Along with Stenographer, CBI also recruited APP, PP etc. on contractual basis. Although I am happy working with CBI, but I feel and hope that all my other colleagues will acknowledge my view that the salary offered to us i.e. Rs.15,000/- p.m. is very much on the lower side compared to the present market and also the salary of regular staff of CBI for the same post. Moreover, we are not getting any other single benefit whatsoever. There will also be no increment and as long as we work, the salary is fixed at Rs.15,000/-. Even the leave is less than other regular candidates. In view of this, I wonder if a higher salary, say Rs.25,000/- or so can be considered for Contractual Stenographers in CBI. As is known to all that for contractual jobs, usually the retired or aged people with vast experience apply and accept the job. Hence, the organization gets the most experienced and efficient hands. Therefore, the salary may kindly be considered as advised above for which we all be benefited a lot. It may also not be out of place to mention here that in other contractual govt. jobs, the salary so fixed and calculated on the basis the last drawn salary minus the pension which works out to more than Rs.20,000/- presently. Therefore, our salary in CBI may kindly be considered to be hiked to Rs.25,000/-.

    Shyamal Kumar Det:


    During the interview on 15th October, 2012 at CBI office in Nizam Palace, Kolkata, we were informed that appointment would take 3 (three) months. Since three months have since elapsed and I am yet to get any intimation, I presume the whole process would take more time. May I know when will the appointments take place ? Thanks
