1] Exam Name: MPSC Tax Assistant Exam

Note: I am assuming that from next year (2018) there will be change in pattern of this exam. Means currently for MPSC Tax Assistant Exam Mains Exam has Only One Paper with 400 Marks and I am sure that from next year there will be 2 papers each of 200 marks for MPSC Tax Assistant Mains Exam.

2] Introduction:

MPSC conducts the MPSC Tax Assistant Examination to fill the vacant posts of Tax assistant in the Sales tax Department. Sales Tax Department is the part Finance Department and its important revenue earning department of Maharashtra Government.

More details about Tax Assistant and Sales Tax inspector (STI) and sales tax department will be updated if I will get response from you.

3] Medium of Exam: English and Marathi.

So, Medium of Tax Assistant Exam paper would be Bilingual (English and Marathi) but if the questions are about English Language means if you have questions from English grammar, English Comprehension, etc then there will not be translation of those questions. Overall questions of all papers would be in English and Marathi language.

4] List of posts and details:

Introduction: In this exam there is only one post called “Tax Assistant”. And we know that the eligibility for tax assistant includes typing (Marathi- 30 words/minute & English-40 words/minute), so the work of tax assistant would be not typing but filling some sort of information about sales tax into software. Will update full information about tax assistant very soon…

18] How to Prepare For MPSC Exam?

So, the question is how to prepare for MPSC Tax Assistant Exam? Most of the MPSC Aspirants Who prepare for MPSC Rajyaseva and Other exams (Like This) simultaneously so they don’t take that much of burden to prepare for this exam but there are lots of MPSC Aspirants Who prepare for this type of exam only because they knows their capacity of preparation and other things. First of all you must have one preparation plan to prepare for any MPSC Exam. You may have plan for preparing multiple exams or you may have plan preparing limited exams. Here multiple means lots of exams and limited means only selected exams before the one year of those exams you want to appear for next year. Depending on your situation let’s discuss how to prepare for MPSC Tax Assistant Exam?

So, you have Pattern, Syllabus, Previous Years Papers and Previous Years Cut Offs and Limited time. First of all your basics should be clear here basics means not that “Reading NCERT Books”, “Reading State Board Books” etc. Reading these books is the primary knowledge and this type of reading will clear your basics that’s it.

For eg. If you are reading about geography of Maharashtra from standard books directly. While reading you found the word like “कोकण”, “विदर्भ” and you don’t know about these all while reading then these words would be words for you but if you know these words then while reading you will imagine the map of Kokan, Vidarbh etc.

This is just example of geography I haven’t taken hard words (concepts from geography), means your basics should be clear, so while reading standard material you will be able to grasp more knowledge than before.

For e.g. We have seen that for 9th standard student there is “Geography of Maharashtra Book”, for 10th standard students there is “Geography of India” and for 11th & 12th standard students there is “Geography of World”. What it shows? it shows that first you should know the primary things like our state “Maharashtra” . Now you may tell me that there are geography of continent for Primary class Students (5th -8th). But that’s only for to understand basic of continent that’s it.

Preparation Strategy for MPSC Tax Assistant

First thing you have to do is that Print the syllabus of this exam and read it every day or every week. Collect the Previous year’s questions papers and their answers keys and print it if you want otherwise you can read it on your desktop or tablet or Mobile. If you fill uncomfortable with reading in Mobile Then print the questions papers rather than buying tablet (you can print the questions paper like 4 pages of questions paper on one page-if you want to save money).then you can read the previous year’s papers to understand the depth of questions. Then you can read the relevant basic books (State Board, NCERT Books). And then you can read previous years questions papers once again to test your basic knowledge means now if you are able to solved the basics questions then its plus point… good.

Now come to the Second part “Prelim First or Mains First?” Lots of students thinks that first prelim exam and then mains exam. But we know the syllabus of MPSC Tax assistant mains exam there are 2 papers, Paper 1 is Marathi & English, Paper 2 is with multiple subjects like History, Geography, Book Keeping and Accountancy, etc. but by considering Prelim and mains Syllabus
