JPSC chairperson meets Guv at Raj Bhawan

Thursday, 25 November 2021 | PNS | Ranchi

Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC) chairperson Amitabh Chaudhary on Wednesday hinted that the commission may release the cut-off marks for the recently held preliminary exams on its official website by the end of Thursday.

Governor Ramesh Bais summoned the JPSC chief on Wednesday over the recent protests against alleged anomalies in the recently held JPSC 7,8 9 and 10 exams. After meeting Bais at Raj Bhawan, Chaudhary assured necessary actions to clear all doubts and concerns of aspirants. Talking to media persons outside Raj Bhawan on Wednesday, Chaudhary said that there was nothing to worry about and the JPSC will come out clean.

“Everything is fine. Please check the official website of JPSC tomorrow (Thursday), and all your queries will be answered,” Chaudhary told media persons, dodging questions asked by media persons.

Several thousand JPSC aspirants have been demanding cancellation of the recently conducted preliminary tests for JPSC 7 to 10 citing favouritism and anomalies in the system. The students have alleged that the JPSC has not issued a cut-off for the recently held exams, and demanded reexamination. The protesting aspirants have alleged that several aspirants whose roll numbers fell in sequence cleared the tests, while no aspirant under the specially-abled category made it to the list of successful candidates. Besides, some aspirants did not clear the exam despite scoring more than other candidates who cleared the test, the protestors have said. This movement has also gained the support of some political parties lately. On Tuesday, police personnel had to lathi-charge protesting students and a few BJP leaders while they were on their way to meet the JPSC chief in Ranchi. The incident hogged the attention of higher authorities and also led to the Governor summoning the JPSC chairperson.

JPSC exams have been riddled with controversies since 2016. The prelims test for JPSC 6 was conducted way back on December 18, 2016 and its result was declared in February 2017. On June 7, 2021, The Jharkhand High Court cancelled the merit list of the 6th JPSC after years of protests by aspirants. The court also directed the state government to identify the officials responsible for the mistake in the merit list and take action against them.
