DRDO CEPTAM 2022 Important Points

Before applying for the position, candidates must ensure that they meet all of the requirements. At all phases of the selection process, their admittance will be strictly provisional, contingent on meeting the qualifying requirements. If it is discovered during or after the selection process that they do not meet any of the eligibility criteria, their candidature/appointment will be cancelled without notice, and no representation will be heard in this regard under any circumstances.

Provisional shortlisting/selection at any level of the process, or examination success, confers no right of appointment unless the DRDO is satisfied, after making all appropriate inquiries, that the candidate is suitable in all respects for appointment to the service/post.

The DRDO’s decision in all matters relating to eligibility, acceptance, or rejection of applications, mode of selection, examination(s), allotment of examination centres, and nomination of provisionally shortlisted candidates to a specific lab/city will be final and binding on the candidates, and no correspondence will be entertained. As a result, it is critical to prepare thoroughly, overcome all obstacles, and achieve a solid DRDO CEPTAM result.
