Is there a possibility of losing a job after two years of training as a paid intern at BARC for the position of scientific assistant?

BARC employees are required to follow the rules and regulations specified by the Department of Atomic Energy.

Any violation of these rules will result in the dismissal of employees followed by legal procedure.

10 years is a long time and anyone who has claimed to be able to "forecast" certain events in the future has been wrong 99.9999% of the time. That said, in principle, Moore's Law could really kick butt.

Based on the trends I see today, here is my take.

  1. Executive assistants - Once chatbots and virtual personal assistants like x.ai have a few iterations of their product, you'll never need a human assistant to book or schedule again.
  2. Taxi Drivers - You won't need them because the cars will drive themselves. Maybe they still sit in cars and act like tour guides or something.

10 years is a long time and anyone who has claimed to be able to "forecast" certain events in the future has been wrong 99.9999% of the time. That said, in principle, Moore's Law could really kick butt.

  1. Executive assistants - Once chatbots and virtual personal assistants like x.ai have a few iterations of their product, you'll never need a human assistant to book or schedule again.
  2. Taxi Drivers - You won't need them because the cars will drive themselves. Maybe they still sit in cars and act like tour guides or something.
  3. Attorneys - Young attorneys sifting through lost paperwork will be quickly replaced by computers that can do so more quickly and accurately.
  4. Dealers. They will be quickly replaced by drones. Amazon has so many patents around this. Like the drone that will parachute your delivery right to your doorstep.
  5. Translators - Google translate still sucks so it will take a while. It will get better. Over time, translating entire websites will be easy and accurate. (That said, machines may not be able to translate entire books because there are so many nuances involved and an element of transcreation that is more sophisticated.)
  6. General practitioners. You go to the doctor, he checks your temperature, informs you that you may be catching the flu, and then gives you medicine. And sadly, doctors are often wrong. When you can accurately measure everything related to your health via your Apple Watch and receive treatment at home, you don't need to go to the doctor. Eventually, 80% of what doctors are doing will be replaced by technology that you can access from your watch or a microchip in your ear.
  7. Digital advertising. This will be almost all completely algorithmic in the near future. At this time there are still analysts and campaign planners, but that will not be necessary. Creativity will be your selling point in the new world of advertising.
  8. Bankers. Over time, all financial transactions will be automated. Blockchain will kill the middlemen. They will go to finite technology.
  9. Cashiers. I'm not sure why they still exist.
  10. Angelic Investors. The investment will no longer be a black box. Anyone will be able to launch an ICO and raise money on a large scale so that the value of the angel investor as we know it today ceases to exist.

Well, let me ask you a question; What are you? An engineer? Or a mainstream student, to be more specifically physics students?

For an engineer, whose goal is to earn as much as he can (believe me, most Indian engineers think this way), why do they bother to come to BARC? You can get 10-15 LPAs in a multinational with just a few years of joining. If you have an MBA from an IIM then you are on top of the world.

But on the other hand, if you are a mainstream student, for example a Physics student, life is not easy as an engineer. You need to take test after test to establish yourself. me

But on the other hand, if you are a mainstream student, for example a Physics student, life is not easy as an engineer. You need to take test after test to establish yourself. You have to write the NET / JEST / GATE exam to get a rank, (if you rank below 140, you're screwed. Trust me, all major research institutes don't call you for an INTERVIEW if you rank lower than that) Then, if you go through the interview process (some institutes take two rounds of interviews), you will be selected for P.hD. That is just a start. Then after 5-6 grueling years, you will get a P.hD. (It's not a job). Then you need to opt for Post Doc, after 2-3 postdoc experiences,

In summary,

do not come IF you want to earn more money. BARC cannot give you more than an average bureaucrat.

don't come if you want a serious investigation. You can land in some group where these facilities are not available.

don't come if you're hungry for power. We need to speak very softly to our subordinates to do our job.

Let me answer you with a slight detail. As usual rhetoric, I would say that all government jobs are TRANSFERABLE. So no one claims that this institute offers 100% transfer security (and no one should).

Regardless, Scientific Officers (SO) at BARC can be stationed at BARC Trombay, Environmental Survey Laboratories, NFC, RRCAT, BARC-Vizag, or any of the various BARC units located outside of Mumbai. However, the frequency of transfer of officers is minimal.

Those who join BARC through Training School: The process of this placement is based on the marks obtained in the partial exams of 1 year Tra

Those who join BARC through the Training School: the process of this placement is based on the scores obtained in the midterms of a 1-year training course conducted by the prestigious BARC Training School and also in the options chosen by TSOs (as SOs in training choose their options based on the vacancies proposed by different units). Those who get higher grades, in general, and I emphasize, generally go for BARC Mumbai. Once posted to Headquarters, an OS rarely attempts to be moved to another location. But I have seen several cases of SO opting to move out of Mumbai due to various reasons. SOs stationed abroad try to be transferred to Headquarters.

Direct incorporation: since they know where the vacancies come from.

Staying informed at BARC headquarters requires a lot of effort regarding scientific research and projects important to DAE. This does not mean that outside of headquarters you are free to do anything. The annual rating system (CR / APAR) is a check to make sure you are meeting all aspects of being an officer.

There are a few reasons I can think of.

  1. At BARC, the selection is based entirely on the scores obtained in the interview, that is, your written / GATE scores do not carry over for your final selection. Therefore, interviewers are supposed to give you enough time to show their knowledge and understanding.
  2. There is no fixed number of candidates admitted by BARC, but there is a flexible range. They can select 130 or they can also select 160 people who see the caliber of the candidate. Therefore, they are not forced to reject the candidate at first sight for lack of expression.
  3. They ask you for 5 favorite subjects. When they give you

  3. They ask you for 5 favorite subjects. When they give you the freedom to choose your subjects, they expect you to feel comfortable enough in the subjects you studied for almost 4 to 5 years. If you really understand them, you can surely face a 1-2 hour interview.
  4. They want to see if you really understand the logic behind the theories, the derivations, the various relationships, and the graphs. For this they also give you time to think about the same moment, they give you clues, etc. The whole process takes time.
  5. Last but not least, they always want to make sure that if they are turning down a candidate, they are sure they did not deserve it enough. There have been cases where candidates without in-depth knowledge were interviewed for 1.5 hours or more. In such cases, they try to ensure that they are not losing a potential scientist just because he was uncomfortable facing an interview.

Although, CCS rules allow you to work for charitable / social work, but you cannot accept any payment for it. However, you can be a social entrepreneur.

It is true that the course of the program is elaborate and demanding, but that is because you are being taught a whole new field of engineering which is 'nuclear science and engineering' in one year, although a more traditional course would require 2 years if you were to takes into account a master's program. .

The main idea behind keeping the course so elaborate is that he or she can understand and realize your special interest in a specific area and have a general idea about the whole field, and what kinds of projects are being carried out throughout. the DAE as well. which will be helpful when deciding which project or not

This will be helpful in deciding which project or unit you would prefer to join after completing the training. Because I think, unless you see the full menu, how are you going to order the food that you want to eat?

I understand that finding a job in India is difficult and once you have one, you want to relax for once, and trust me, you will have plenty of time for that during the program, so don't worry about it. Regarding HRDD, they will not let you fail and if you get an endorsement in any subject, you can reappear for the exam and, no matter how many endorsements you get, you will continue to join as a Scientific Officer with a similar salary in one of the DAE units, for so there is no "failure" scenario as such.

That being said, it is always advisable to study if you have the opportunity to do so, because additional knowledge never hurts!

First of all, let me clear up the radiation problem. Special precautions are taken at both NPCIL and BARC if you are working in a radiation zone. So you don't need to worry about this. You are both safe in the organization from the radiation point of view. I think this should not be the selection criteria.

Upon arrival at the posting location, all NPCIL power plants are in remote locations. You will get good accommodation in the municipality of NPCIL, but again you will be at a minimum distance of 50 to 60 km from the main cities. Therefore, publishing the location is always a problem with NPCIL, and in this sense, BARC is much better.

Available salary will be slightly higher at NPCIL due to higher assignments due to remote locations and work environment.

BARC promotes its employees to pursue higher education such as M-Tech / PHD. So this is a good part because later in your career, if you have a PhD, you can join any government / IIT university as a professor. This function is not available with NPCIL.

So based on your preferences, you can choose between BARC / NPCIL.

You can always find some paid accommodation available in chembur (a nearby town). However, don't expect your money to be worth it. In addition to this, if you have someone you know (who is not too close, obviously) in BARC, such as an xyz employee, you can make a query and there is a possibility that your contact's friend is willing to share your room during that brief period (It can be if you are lucky). Thinking of hotels will put a hole in your pocket and you will try to use dial-only.

THE LIFE OF THE trainee at BARC IS VERY GOOD. YOU HAVE TO WORK HARD CONTINUOUSLY IN YOUR PROFESSIONAL JOB AND PROGRESS DEPENDS ON YOUR EFFORTS. IT IS REWARDED, THERE IS NO LIMIT,

Here the question is not clear. At BARC, 2 different categories of apprentices are hired. One category (BE / BTech / MSc) with GATE becomes Class 1 Officer after training and another category (ITI / DIPLOMA / HSC) becomes Technician / Plant Operator after training.
