You can write GDCE exam just

You can write GDCE exam just after your regular posting if you have the qualification needed(Diploma for JE). While technically it is possible to become JE in 2-3 year as you wish, on practical side chances of it depend on many conditions like vacancies existing/arising in your Zone, number of departmental candidates appearing for the exam. After all it depends on your performance over others - not just passing the exam.
