SSC EXAMS: What is SAS post?

SSC EXAMS: What is SAS post?

  • According to the salary chart for newly recruited Central Govt Employees provided by you 4800 is d highest pay band which is offered to AAO (Section officers). But in the CGL11 option form there was no such department as well as no such GP…… what is this post actually? and which exam should one write to be selected in this post? and also give the pros & cons of this post…

This post is SAS APPRENTICE (Subordinate Accounts Services Apprentice). which is a non-gazetted post associated with the grade pay of Rs 4,800. This post falls under the department ‘Controller General of Defence Accounts (CGDA)’, Ministry of Defence. The probation period is 2 years. After the successful completion of the probation the appointee is called AAO (gazetted).

Remember SSC is empowered only for conducting exams for non-gazetted posts. SSC did not include this post in CGLE-2011 and as well as CGLE-12 & CGLE-13 as the concerned department did not send any vacancies for this post to SSC in those years.
