What is PSU?

PSU (Public Sector Undertaking)

Public sector undertaking company (PSU) is a Government owned corporation or a company in which central or state government have more than 51% share. Basically these government companies run like private companies and share profits to Government.

PSU’s in India, for long, have had troubles conducting their recruitment processes with more than 100,000 students taking the exams for less than 1000 jobs (a selection rate of less than 1%). After sensing the exponential rise in the number of engineering graduates in India who wish to get a PSU job, the PSUs have decided that a GATE score shall be the primary criteria for initial shortlisting. This change was the primary cause for the rapid increase in GATE 2012.

Usually these companies release their recruitment notifications right after GATE notification, indicating that candidates have to take GATE for a job in their organizations. Thus, GATE score is used as a screening tool for recruiting engineers at entry level positions.
