CGL is a graduate level examination and I think they have been asking about the Graduation roll number may be or it can be for boards 10th or 12th.
I would request you to read the information bulletin or the instructions carefully as per SSC CGL & then fill it up. I wish a careful read will solve your problem.
I hope my answer helps. All the very best for your future endeavors!
Which will be best Income tax officer through SSC CGL or deputy superintendent of police through MPSC ? please pick one of them...
In my view, both are the best. State PSC conducts exam for recruitment of Group A & B and being a Deputy Superintendent of Police is a group A post. Everybody knows the power of these posts.
The order of promotion as income tax Inspector-->income tax officer (gazetted grp B)--> Asstt Commissioner (equivalent to IRS)-->Dy. Commissioner--> Joint Commissioner-->Additional Commissioner-->Commissioner of income tax.
As compared to PSC, SSC CGL recruits only Group B and Group C posts. So you will not get any chance here for Group A post. By promotion you can become Group A. Income tax Inspector from SSC CGL is a group B post.
which will be best Income tax officer or CBI officer ? please pick one of them...
It's very unfair to just teo different and highly prestigious jobs on the basis of certain factors.
Let me tell you about these career opportunities, so that you can decide which suits you the best-
An income tax officer is responsible to collect the revenues and maintain the official record of all the taxes collected within his allotted area or region on a persistent basis.
A CBI officer on the other hand is responsible to tackle both financial deficits, also solve criminal cases as the highest investing agency in the country.
Hope it helps!!
