NTPC ET Recruitment 2013 through GATE 2013NTPC has very recently issued a curtain raiser notification for GET (Graduate Engineer Trainee) Recruitment 2013 through GATE 2013. This marks the beginning of PSU recruiting through GATE 2013, along with HPCL & GAIL which has issued detailed recruitment notification for the year 2013. Detail NTPC notification is going to be published, most probably in a week or so (definitely before 30th September, 2012 - since it is the last date to apply for GATE 2013).

All that NTPC ET Recruitment 2013 notification says at this moment is following:

"NTPC is looking for promising, energetic young Graduate Engineers to be inducted during the year 2013 in the disciplines of Electrical, Mechanical, Civil, Instrumentation and Electronics Engineering.
