A Career in India’s Top PSUs
Did you know that Public Sector Units (PSUs) in India contribute 20% of the national GDP?
Basically PSUs are government owned companies, where either the state or central government has a 51% or more share. These companies run like any other listed company, although they share their profits with the government. Working in such units can be very demanding and requires sound technical and engineering knowledge in the core subject areas. Over 2,000 job opportunities are available currently in this sector for engineering related positions in major organisations like Indian Oil Corporation, BHEL, NALCO, Coal India and GAIL, to name a few.
There is a growing trend amongst such organisations to consider the GATE exam performance of a candidate for recruitment eligibility and competence. The reason they consider these scores is that the exam tests technical, logical and analytical skills. Here, the candidate’s understanding of the fundamentals and the core subjects is essential to be able to score well.
These organisations offer high profile and lucrative jobs, and students could even get the opportunity to begin their career with a starting CTC of Rs. 9 lakhs.
List of Hiring Organisations
Now, 15 organisations from the public sector use the GATE scores to recruit and the CTC offered starts from Rs. 8 lakhs and goes up to Rs. 12 lakhs per annum, apart from monetary compensations and several other perks.

The Advantages of Working in PSUs
Public sector jobs in India definitely give employees a large amount of flexibility. They offer periods of leisure and relaxation that give a perfect balance between work and personal life.
- Some companies have tie ups with IMI and IITs for full time MBA and MTech courses for their employees. They might also provide many soft loans.
- State run organisations have come up with innovative facilities for their employees, within the pay structure. Some companies offer full medical cover after the age of 50 for employees and their families, even after retirement.
- To make an employee’s salary tax friendly, companies offer options for employees to take 47% of their salary in reimbursements, for expenses such as buying computers or laptops or even a family vacation abroad.
All in all, perks offered by PSUs not only help retain employees, they attract a multitude of job aspirants as well.
I am Praveen. I got AIR 1 in Instrumentation stream. I want to dedicate this to my parents and to the Gate Academy faculty.

E Lectures helped me a lot in making a head start in the right direction. It helped whenever I got stuck in any topic. Mock Tests across 50 centers helped me judge my progress both on individual and comparative basis.
In one year’s time, I was able to prepare for GATE exam with the help of THE GATE ACADEMY and faculties. GATE Focused study materials and online mock tests helped me know my strengthen & weakness to prepare accordingly. I wish all the best to all GATE aspirants and suggest them to go through GATE coaching in case the basics are not clear.
I took up mechanical coaching at THE GATE ACADEMY as there is no separate coaching for Engineering Sciences in India and Mechanical and Engineering sciences have more or less common topics.I feared that cracking GATE would be very difficult because I started my preparations very late but the counsellors and teachers guided me
THE GATE Academy questions covered a wide variety of topics and were similar to GATE paper standard. The online platform replicated the actual GATE test environment and the detailed and video solutions were sufficient to clear all doubts regarding the question. Thanks to THE GATE Academy team to provide such wonderful tests & platform.
