    hi ankita

    Just want to clarify a doubt regarding the application for assistant manager systems. I did my Btech in Instrumentation and control engineering.According to the notification its mentioned electronics and instrumentation are eligible. Now according to you I & CE graduates can apply. But actually while you submit the application you cannot do it as it will show a pop up regarding the essential qualification. When you would mention I & CE in others in educational qualification you will not be proceeded further. So just want to know what’s the process for the same. Please advise
