Four universities of Gujarat, Saurashtra University, Gujarat University, Veer Narmad South Gujarat University and MS University will now be conducting the Certificate Course in Computer Knowledge (CCC) Examination, the state government has said.
The decision was taken only when the government found that there were more than 1.5 lakh government employees waiting to appear for the CCC examination. Earlier, only Gujarat Technological University (GTU) was conducting the examination.
According to the officials, every state government employee has to appear for the CCC examination. However, with the backlog of 1.5 lakh employees, the state has given a relaxation for clearing the examination. It is to be noted that due to absence of clearing the examination, the employees were not given promotion.
M N Patel, Gujarat University Vice Chancellor said, “GTU was conducting the examination for only 10,000 to 15,000 candidates. However, the state has now decided that each university will be conducted examination for 25,000 candidates. The state government has asked each university to prepare a detailed programme for the examination and submit it to the state for conducting this examination.
