    • Add CGPA marks in BSNL TTA online form. Or try to get equivalent marks from your college or university along with conversion certificate from CGPA to Marks.

  1. what about specialization syllabus.does the candidate has to read all subjects or with respect to specialization?

    • Yes, Open candidates are also eligible for Junior Engineer post. It is not backlog vacancy recruitment where only reserved category candidates can apply. It’s a general recruitment for the post of TTA or JE.
