In a great news to the aspiring candidates, Sunil K. Ranjan(DEPUTY REGIONAL DIRECTOR – North Western Region) has announced in his Facebook post that SSC CGL 2014 would be conducted as per the same schedule.
The announcement has been made after Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram austerity measures announced today to cut non-plan expenditure by 10 per cent.
Aiming to restrict the fiscal deficit to 4.8 per cent of GDP in 2013-14, the Finance Ministry has ordered all ministries and departments not to buy new vehicles, create new jobs or fill posts lying vacant for over one year.
Check out the Facebook Post of Mr. Sunil K. Ranjan about SSC CGL 2014:

SSC recruits the candidates for the existing vacancies, so in case if there is ban on creation of news jobs – it won’t affect CGL 2013/2014.
So, I would advise you to start preparing for SSC CGL 2014 now. You can check out Best Books for SSC CGL 2014 here.
