  1. Iam in mscc botany , also i govt empolee in state health labortaory as chemical assist.can i apply for phd?please give me information?

    • Dear Rakhi,

      Since there is a dearth of food testing personnel, the FSSAI is holding this examination in the hopes that more candidates are aware of such possibilities and look for rewarding careers in Food Industry and Food Testing Laboratories.

      This will be an added advantage if and when you want to get into the food industry in terms of job prospects.

      All the best!

    • Dear Priya,

      This exam does not lead to any job opportunity by FSSAI. However on occasion, FSSAI does hire, so keep a close watch. But apart from that other govt organizations can hire candidates who have written this examination, as this is an added advantage.

      All the best!
