Recently, it was reported and announced that Central Government will hire as many as 2.2 Lakh people from March, 2015. Out of these a maximum of 70,000 vacancies, will be created in Income Tax, Excise and Customs Department.

As the Recruitment for these departments is done by Staff Selection Commission through the SSC CGL Exam, so we expect that the bulk of these vacancies will be filled up in the upcoming CGL 2017 Exam. Although there is a No Official confirmation yet of the exact no. of vacancies, one thing is clear, that CGL 2017  will create an awesome no. of vacancies for Government Jobs seekers in Central Government Departments and Ministries.

Moreover, recent Demonetisation in the country will create more Jobs in Income Tax Department, as Prime Minister Mr Narender Modi had announced, that the Government will deal strongly with Tax Evaders and for that if the need arises, he will create 1 lakh Jobs in Income Tax Department itself. As these words are said in a sense of emotion, so at this time, we cannot confirm on the exact no. of vacancies for SSC CGL 2017.

For 2016 CGL Exam, earlier, there were only 4500 to 5000 vacancies, but as the time passed, the number of vacancies were increased to 12000. And For 2017 CGL Exam, we expected that No. of vacancies may cross even 20,000, thanks to Bumper Hiring in the Income Tax Department. However, there is also a possibility, that the Department, may conduct the Recruitment of Tax Assistants on its own.  


SSC CGL 2017 Admit Card

(I) 240000 vacancies in Income Tax Department: As per the Budget-2017 Document, Income Tax Department is expected to increase its strength from 46000 to 80000 before March 2017.

This means, that Income Tax Department, will create 24000 Jobs in coming 1 year.

Customs Department is one of those departments, that will do Bumper hiring in 2017-18. As per the reports, the Department is going to recruit 50000 new people in its Departments.
