What is JTO?
'JTO' stands for 'Junior Telecom
Officer's, a job position
being offered by one of India's biggest companies in the telecommunications and

limit for the JTO position is standard at 21 to 28 years of age.

basic intelligence questions. A total of three hours is allotted for
applicants to take the JTO exam. If successful with the exam, applicants
