    Please dont post vacancy of JRF as govt. job because it doesnt have any of the benefits of a proper govt job. A JRF can stay in DRDO upto 4 yrs max after which he has to get out of the organization or join a PHD program and promote himself to RF through proper channel. Even after that once you get your PHD you are on your own. So please stop this fraud of promoting a research fellow vacancy as a govt job. Please
