CSIR CASE EXam Structure

Notification says, CSIR *may* fix separate minimum cut-off marks for each paper. Anyways let’s check the topicwise booklist, strategy

CSIR CASE Paper I

Reasoning (20 Qs)

verbal
  1. Do minimum 15 sums for all chapters from RS Agarwal’s book on “A Modern Approach to Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning
  2. Practice is essential because this paper will have 150 question and 150 minutes.
  3. That means 1 minute for each question.
  4. However many questions related to sitting-arrangement, blood-relations, data-interpretation etc can take almost 15 to 20 minutes if you have not practiced them at home.

Maths (20 Qs)


  1. First of all, read the art of aptitude CLICK ME
  2. Second, learn how to solve maths without mugging up formulas. For that, go to Mrunal.org/aptitude, read my earlier articles to understand the tricks and concepts related to Time-Speed-Distance-work, percentage, profit loss, boats, pipes, stream, trains, permutation, combination  and probability.
  3. Third practice maximum questions from RS Agarwal’s book on Quantitative Aptitude OR Quantam CAT by Sarvesh Kumar Verma(upto level 1) OR Fasttrack to Objective arithmetic (use any one book).

You may also consult NCERT Class 7 to 10 Mathematics textbooks for clearing basic concepts. They can be downloaded for free, using http://www.ncert.nic.in/

Constitution of India (20 Qs)

MediumBook
EnglishIndian Polity  by M.Laxmikanth
HindiBharat Ki Rajyavyavastha by M.Laxmikanth

Two reasons why you should religiously mugup M.Laxmikanth:

Pol_E
  1. CSIR notification explicitely mentions that 20 questions will come from Constitution of INDIA (in Paper I)
  2. The Paper II, Topic #6 again has ‘Public Administration’ and many of its topics ( Executive, parliament, judiciary, PRI etc) have to be prepared from Indian Polity by M.Laxmikanth.

How to efficiently read this book, has been explained here in a separate article: CLICK ME

After you’ve done reading Laxmikanth, solve all the MCQ questions given at the end of that book.

General Awareness (40 Qs)

Current EventsNewspaper. (Hindu or Indian Express).Monthly Current Affairs from Competitionmaster.com (Start from Jan 2012)

Please note:

  1. The CSIR notification doesn’t explicitly mention “History”. However just to be safe, also prepare History from NCERT Textbook because indirectly it is General Awareness.
  2. Download links for NCERT and NIOS material given @bottom of this article.
  3. Newspaper= The Hindu OR IndianExpress (use any one). Don’t waste time in Dainik Bhaskar, Times of India etc. How to use newspaper for current affairs preparation =explained in separate article click me.
  4. Newspaper = long term investment (for profile and opinion based questions in interview in all exams be it Bank or MBA.) So don’t think that newspaper reading is meant for IAS exam only.

Paper II: CCS+Mgmt+HR + PubAD+CCS

This paper has 150 marks, 150 Qs, 150 minutes.

Overview:

topicNo. of QsSource
Central Civil Service (CCS) Rules, Manuals etc.60
  • PDF compilation given @bottom.
Human Resource  Management (HR) related40

Public Administration25
  • Indian Polity by M.Laxmikanth
  • Selective Study of IGNOU BA (Public Administraion): Download links given at bottom.
Total150

Now let’s check the topicwise approach

Topic #1: Central Civil Service (CCS)

This topic is related with actual / real-life working of an officer in Central Civil Services.I’ve compiled the topicwise PDF files (links @bottom).

Fundamental Rules (FRs) and Supplementary Rules (SRs)

  • These topics are related with “personnel matters”  e.g. leave, promotion, disciplinary action etc matter applicable to officers in Central Service.
  • You’ve to do selective reading of only those topics/information that can be asked from Multi-Choice Question format. For example: The leave travel concession (LTC) is admissible to the Central Govt. employees while on study leave.
  • But No need to mugup minute details, dates, names, numbers.

General Financial Rules

  • Given in CCS ZIP file @bottom.
  • This deals with budget and Expenditure related matters in ministries and departments.
  • From that PDF file, prepare Chapter 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8.
  • Again no need to go in minute details. Most of the content given in that PDF file is not ‘exam-worhty’.
  • Just prepare stuff that can be asked in MCQ format. for example what items go in Capital account, what items go in Revenue account and so on.
  • Also prepare Budget formulation topic from IGNOU Public Administration material (given @bottom).

Manual of Office Procedure (15 Qs)

  • Given in CCS ZIP file @bottom.
  • This topic deals with how to actually work in a Government office=how to draft letters, what to do with “daks”, record-keeping, filing, inspection etc.
  • Same principle: Just get brief overview of Exam-worthy information. No need to do Ph.D For example
Important
  1. e-Office MMP is aimed at introducing the concept of e-file in the government offices leading to ‘less paper offices’
  2. Initial drafting will be done in black or blue ink. Modifications in the draft at the subsequent levels may be made in green or red ink by the officers so as to distinguish the corrections  made.
Useless
  1. Volume II of the 13th Edition of the CSMOP is the ‘Guidelines of Government of India Websites’, which was brought out by the Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances in January, 2009.

Donot take this lightly, because CSIR notification explicitly mentions that 15 questions will come from this topic. This concludes how to approach CCS.

Topic #2: HRM (40qs)

This topic is to be prepared from selective study of IGNOU BA and MA Public Administration booklet codes EPA-01, MPA 013, 014 etc. I’ve compiled the IGNOU PDF files those selective topics. Download link given @bottom (HRM_CSIR.zip file). Only 2 topics missing

  1. Collaboration, Team Working & Networking;
  2. Facilities & Infrastructure Management
 (Seems ^They would be in MBA booklets but not explicitly available on egyankosh.ac.in)

How to approach HRM for CISR?

  • HRM topic might feel daunting and boring. Because they talk about lot of abstract stuff.
  • BUT the concepts and principles related to motivation, communication, leadership, recruitment and promotion = very easy to frame MCQs from them.
  • So prepare them thoroughly from the given PDF files. (without getting bogged down by the abstract and philosophical stuff).
  • When you search HRM on egyankosh.ac.in, it throws up truckload of results. They’ve special courses of PG diploma in HRM etc. But those booklets go in way too much detail.
  • On the other hand MA Public Administration (MPA-014) has covered HRM in very condensed form, therefore I’ve compiled the PDFs mostly from MPA-014 (and not the PGDHRM course).
  • But if you’ve time (and mood) you may download PGDHRM booklets manually from egyankosh.ac.in

Management/ IT related (25 Qs)

The best way to approach = via selective reading of IGNOU’s MBA booklets. Goto this link: School of Management Studies (http://www.egyankosh.ac.in/handle/123456789/9

Search and download the respective PDF files according to the syllabus.

Management/ IT topiclist from official CSIR notification:

ERP Application & Operations’ Management,Business Process Reengineering, Functional architecture of ERP, What are the ERP packages being used now? Compiling functional requirements, UML Diagrams, ERP Solution architecture, Enterprise application implementation projects: Rationale for ERP, Process Flow Diagrams, Decision making, Analytics, Record keeping, Integrating Business Rules, Electronic Workflows, Management reporting, Business intelligence, Performance Metrics, GUI, Web services, Collaboration  &  networking,  Integration  interoperability configuration management, Cloud Computing, Software Reuse, management of risks, software Security, Recovery and failsafe management, Knowledge management, User Engagement, Change Management, Life cycle approaches, Software Audit, Reliability, manageability, availability, TQM, Business application areas of an organization including accounting and finance, HR, logistics & supply chain, client & stakeholder relationship management

^Some of these topics may not to explicitly mentioned in IGNOU coursebooklet titles so even if you search, you won’t find it. (because egyankosh seach engine is not optimized to scan PDF content.) So better consult some friends from MBA and Computer (BCA/MCA) course then search and/or borrow their books for selective study.

Public Administration including R.T.I Act (25 Qs)

Essential booklist

  1. Selective topics from IGNOU (free download link given @bottom.)
  2. + Indian Polity by M.Laxmikanth

How to approach?

There is lot of overlapping and synergy between Constitution of India topic from paper I (20 Qs) and Public Administration topic from Paper II (25Qs). Besides, nature of this topic= very easy to grasp the concepts and tick answers accurately (if you revise often).

Side Note

Those CSIR aspirants, who’re simultaneously preparing for UPSC /State PSC (RAS, Punjab etc) with Public Administration optional subject:

Some unwanted advice, warnings etc.

  • When we talk of IAS, CAT, IBPS= these exams are held at regular interval, hence there is lot of information, experience-sharing and material from reputed book publisher (Tata Macgrawhill, Pearson, Arihant, S.Chand etc).
  • But Exams like RBI, APFC, CSIR = Diwali time for some moneyminded people. They just assemble topics from here and there, come out with some “Readymade guidebook/Material” for Rs.2000, 5000 or 6000/- (depending on how rare the exam is and how desperate the public is.) don’t waste your precious money on such things. Always prefer authentic sources and standard reference books. If you believe there is some single magical guidebook to crack CSIR exam then you’re living in a fairyworld.
  • Better prepare your own notes from CCS. (we are talking about 60 marks here: That means 40% of Paper II is made up of CCS topic.)
  • for NCERT and M.Laxmikanth: no need to maintain notes as such, just revise them often.
  • You may use Mrunal’s Autonotemaker to quickly prepare notes out of PDF Files (provided that you’ve Microsoft XP Operating System).
  • HR, MBA topics don’t stay in long term memory= frequent revision necessary.
  • Current affairs preparation beyond a level= diminishing rate of returns.
  • And most importantly, don’t push your luck by ticking doubtful questions, just to cross some imaginary cutoffs, else you’ll lose in negative marking.

Previous papers and Cut offs

(although I’m filing R.T.I to get previous papers and cutoffs but) there are three reasons why they won’t be of much help:

  1. In 2009’s recruitment round, they did not have negative marking system.
  2. In 2009’s recruitment round, they did not have HR and MBA topics, only Public Administration and in that too, the Public Administration syllabus was very broad -almost identical to the erstwhile Civil Service (preliminary) Public Administration paper.
  3. In 2009, They had descriptive paper on letter writing and comprehension.

  1. Koolperson

    Guys, completly Farzi result publish kiya hai in logo ne. Seems all Departmental Candidates they have selected.

    I’m 110% sure coz I did 146 in Paper1 and 124 in Paper 2 will 90-95% accuracy. Even I’m not selected. What the heck ? I didn’t got even 52% is totally ridiculous.Are they nuts, they will release our marks when all process will be over. They did a big farziwada. I’ll never fill any form of CSIR again in my life. Wasted Rs 500/- on a fraud department.

    They even said to use PENCIL in exam, so in results anything can happen, I had a doubt, but this is reality, I didn’t got 52% marks.
    Guys, if you have any suggestions, what we can do? I mean RTI etc, before they prepare final results.

    Regards

    1. meghna

      haan…bahut logo ko yai samajh nai aa rha ki 140+ attempt karne k baad bhi dey dint get a call tat too wd 80-90% accuracy..pencil se mark karna tha n dey took the question paper 2..anythn can happen..RTI file karenge fir bhi shayad hi kuch ho cz galat answers mark kar dnge n dey ll say ki u cudnt clear the cut off..but i ll go to der office jo katwaria sarai mein hai…

    2. Hopeful

      To all those who are speaking sh*t here out of their frustration about a national level organization….

      Please remember your capabilities. IAS appearing candidates are not GOD. Moreover, Paper II was on domain knowledge which very few experienced people have. so relax and meditate to throw out your frustration.

      GOD BLESS YOU

    If anybody have question about result you may put RTI to CSIR and demand regarding everybody marks in hard copy by sending Postal Order of Rs. 10/-. The Chief RTI Officer,CSIR, Anusandhan Bhavan, 2, Rafi Marg, New Delhi- 110001. If anybody need more information may ask me.

    1. meghna

      1. Pankaj

        @Meghna

        You should write the RTI. RTI is the only tool we have in our hand to curb out this corruption. If we work together we can cut short this malpractise of govt depts. I have also written an RTI regarding my marks in both paper. You should also ask for the same. In addition please ask for photocopy of your OMR Sheet and OMR sheet of the individual who have claimed on this forum that he has given bribe of 10 lakhs. Then you’ll see how their feet tremble.

    2. Anshuman Rai

      Are you sure about that person? or should we send RTI to Shri Y. K. Sharma , C.O.A, HRDC, Ghaziabad ? please guide

  16. priya

    Can any body tell where they have uploaded the result and provide me the link at my email id given above

  20. diggi

    thanks @ najeeb, wellwisher and hopeful.. you guys seem to have a good idea about the job and org.? can you please explain why there is difference in grade pay of Assitant( CSS) and Assitant( csir)??

    1. NAJEEB

      a proposal was there to increase the GP OF CSIR ASST. at par with assistant in CSS. But the proposal has been rejected by finance ministry.

      dont know the exact reason. CSIR is an autonomous institution, their staff is considered as council servants, not as govt. servants.

  21. Anshuman Rai

    Hi everyone!
    Please provide the address to whom RTI needs to be sent. There is lot of ambiguity regarding the person to whom it needs to be addressed.

      The CPIO (Dr. D S Bedi, Head (USD)

      I have written an RTI regarding my marks in both papers and copy of OMR answer sheet and answer key. You should also ask and please ask copy of OMR Sheet of any two of passed candidates.

      To all those who are speaking sh*t here out of their frustration about a national level organization….

      Please remember your capabilities. IAS appearing candidates are not GOD. Moreover, Paper II was on domain knowledge which very few experienced people have. so relax and meditate to throw out your frustration.

      GOD BLESS YOU

        Dear Hopeful
        Yes you are correct that IAS aspirants are not gods, why would they think? Yes Paper II required domain knowledge and myself having Pub Ad as optionals and in my final semester MBA, do you think I lacked domain knowledge? Moreover even if you do, I want to use my right to know what happened in the recruitment process, whats wrong with it? Why can I be sure about myself? Did I utter a single word against CSIR?
        Please check the comments before copy pasting whatever you think or not.

    BHAI…. Currently i am PO in Union Bank. Is assistant post is better than my current one..? any Idea?

          1. raka

            oh .. i first heard about this post when i read an article about neha nautiyal IAS .. she was holding this job when she cleared . hr interview is there on mrunal.org.
            really surprised this is clerical anyhow she made the best use of it

  24. Prajwal Rai

    Does anyone know if there is any kind of service bond, in terms of minimum service years or bond amount, in this job. Also during form submission there was a column asking for “Lab”. Does it mean that you would necessarily get the same lab as posting location?

            u sure ki bond nai hoga?….waise ye batane ke liye age, aur category ki kya zaroorat hai?

          2. Hopeful

            I will ask CSIR authorities to put a bond for 5 years or Rs. 3 LAKH from now onwards as people like you are using this organization as back up

          3. hema

            What’s wrong getting backup service ? it’s like u want civil service aspirants to either clear civil service or go to street.

  26. Prajwal Rai

    interview clear ho gaya to joining kab tak milne ke chances hain?…. can it b postponed by mid dec…as civil mains hai before that…and bhai don’t b offended but how do u know all this?

  27. Hopeful

    agar chahte ho to concentrate on civil services.. become an officer ye clarical post kyon join karte ho

    1. Prajwal Rai

      Bhai focus to usi par hai….is exam ke liye padhai nai ki thi maine….but this year was my 3rd attempt and at 28 many govt. jobs r over so there shud b a backup so that kharcha paani to nikale….zaroorat padi to leave par chala jaaoonga…..somebody told me ki work load bahut kam hai is profile pe…..so dekhta hun……..

        1. Hopeful

          aao khao maje karo kaheen aur select ho jao…….. CSIR gaya bhaad mein……. kyon yahee mentality hai na tum logon ki

          1. Prajwal Rai

            bhai itna bigadne waali kya baat hai….just because i stated it before i got the job….tell me who wudn’t leave csir or for that matter ne job like that if selected in IAS,IPS etc….nobody dreams of being in these job profiles…obviously they r someone’s compromise….and plzz do tat bond thing for me…it won’t matter in ne case if selected as i am quite sure u know the policy regarding civils job…

  28. 19983_finder

    cleared both CSIR and SBI PO.
    waiting for RBI Grade B exam.
    any idea about the profile of RBI Grade B Exam (Gen)???? what work they do?

  29. anonymous

    RESULTS WERE FIXED…..HOW LET ME TELL U….. WE PPL CONTACT THE CSIR DEPT NUMBER BY PHONE FOR MANY TIMES……..BUT THEY THEMSELVES DONT KNOW ABOUT THE RESULTS …THEY KEEP ON BLUFFING US THAT RESULTS WILL BE BY NEXT WEEK….. BUT SOME PEOPLE WORKING IN CSIR PARTICULARLY TECHNICAL AT VARIOUS PLACES WERE UPDATING INFORMATION….AND ON RESULT DECLARATION DAY THEY WERE NOT ONLY SURE ABOUT THE DATE BUT ALSO ABOUT THEIR RESULT…. IAM NOT BLAMING ALL BUT FEW OF THEM GOT THEIR DEAL FOR SURE…AS UP TO MY KNOWLEDGE MANY PEOPLE HAD GIVEN THEIR BEST AND EXPECT THEIR NAMES TO BE IN THE LIST BUT UNFORTUNATELY….THEY DONT FIND THEIR NAMES….IN THE LIST…. I THINK PPL THOSE GOT THEIR NAMES IN THE LIST ARE

    1) GETTING DEAL FIXED
    2) PPL WORKING IN A REPUTATED SOFTWARE COMPANY
    3)PPL THOSE WHO ARE HAVING A COMPUTER CERTIFICATE FROM A REPUTATED INSTITUTE BESIDES WORKING EXPERIENCE

    AS EVEN THOUGH IT WAS NOT MENTIONED THAT COMPUTER CERIFICATE IS COMPULSARY…. SO THOSE WHO HAVE NOT OPTED FOR THIS OPTION OBVIOUSLY THEIR NAME WILL NOT BE IN THE LIST…..

    IF IAM WRONG THEN PLEASE CORRECT ME WITH UR DETAILS….

    THOSE WHO WANT TO FILE RTI PLEASE GO AHEAD,,,, BESIDES THINK ABOUT OTHER OPPORTUNITIES TOO…SOME PPL OVER HERE ARE GETTING AFRAID WHETHER THEY WILL STUCK SOME WHERE IN THE MIDDLE OF RECRUITMENT…. RTI FILE KARNE SE INKO DARR KYON HAIN JISKO JO KARNA CHAHIYE WO KARO…DUSRON KO DEVIATE MAT KARO….” RTI FILE KARNE SE AAP LOG PARESHAAN KYON HO ? AAP LOGON SE THODI INFORMATION MAANG RAHEN HAIN”….

  32. Pankaj

    you are right @Mr Anonymous, their comments prove that there was something rotten in the whole process. Let us dont let them go with their ease. Hum log atleast unhe pareshaan to kar sakte hai RTI se. And I am sure un logo ke pass perfect jawaab hoga hi nahi dene ke liye. To isliye use your right to information. By the way i am going to go an extra mile by writing a complaint to Anti-corruption bureau and CVC.

      They can ask anything like why you want to join this service,whether job profile suited for you or not, place from where you belongs to,about yourself, they might put some real time situations and may ask questions regarding that to test your caliber to respond… like such questions as I think and what about you friends :)

    DEAR MRUNAL SIR,
    HOW IS THAT THE CUT OFF FOR OBC AND GENERAL CATEGORY SAME? (52%)?? ARE OBC CANDIDATES NOT ALLOWED COMPETE OR TAKE SEAT UNDER GENERAL CAT? IF THEY ARE ALLOWED THEN THE CUT OF OBC SHOULD BE LESS THAN GEN CAT.. IS IT NOT?
