Recruitment of Junior Executive (ATC) vide Advt. No. 3/2006



The Airports Authority of India through an advertisement (Advt.No.3/2006) invited applications for the post of Junior Executive (ATC).

ATC Guild (India) reiterates its serious reservations on the qualifications specified. The Guild has repeatedly stressed that Engineering degree in Electronics / Telecommunication / Radio Engineering / Electrical / Master’s Degree in Electronics should not be the only criteria for being eligible to apply for an air traffic controller job. It would have been appropriate to explain the term ‘equivalent’ on the above-mentioned advertisement to avoid confusion. MSc degree with Electronics / Radio Engineering / Radio Physics etc. as special subjects is also treated as equivalent to Engineering degree in respective fields.

It is worth mentioning that in most of the courses conducted at CATC the performance of the trainees with General Science (MSc with Physics and Maths) qualifications are far better compared to the Trainees with engineering qualifications.

It is with surprise that the Guild notes that the management continues to pursue with its short-sighted approach of equating ATC with other disciplines despite objections, raised in past by the Guild.

The Guild feels that the AAI should immediately change the qualifications required at induction level to make it more broad-based and competitive. We would like to stress that the eligibility qualifications must include engineering degree in Civil / Information Technology / Computers and PG degree in Physics / Maths / Electronics / Computer Applications apart from the ones that are mentioned in the advertisement.

The Guild would like to point out that to be a successful air traffic controller any branch of engineering or PG Degree in the above mentioned areas is sufficient. What is essential is the ability to pick – up skills specified by ICAO. ATC Guild requests to issue necessary corrigendum to the qualification in the above mentioned advertisement.

With regards,

D K Behera
General Secretary
