The criteria for recruitment as Steno vary from organisation to organisation.However in government department, generally intermediate with short hand diploma are eligible to apply. The age limit is 25 and appointment is made in BS 14. More over there is promotion channel and appointee may go up to BS 17 to 18 depending upon his service length. Where there is no promotion channel then time scale promotion is granted to employees after 10 years. Generally time scale promotion is granted twice .
