sir an advertisement was published in August 2020 and some candidates have applied for the post. but now our management is going to conduct the interview after one year gap.Is there any legal point that interview can not conduct after one year huge gap or great advertise is required to be published. kindly help
What type of Company is it, Govt. or Private? Nevertheless in India there are instances to recruit people after 5 years passed after conducting of written exam. This happens regularly in Government Organizations and pendency of Court Cases are amongst other reasons.
To the best of my knowledge, there is no law stipulating the time frame for conducting the Employment process like the issue of advertisement, the conduct of written test if any and conducting interviews, etc. Normally, the organizations out of their need finish the process in a certain time frame convenient to them.
I agree with the experts. No time limit to conduct interviews / written tests after the expiry of one year or more from the date of advertisement. Generally, the recruitment process comes to an end when the requisite number of candidates are selected and posted for the number of vacancies advertised. But after the closure of the recruitment process, the company cannot reopen interviews of the rejected candidates under the expired process.
