UP govt cancels RO, ARO exams

Sunday, 03 March 2024 | PNS | Lucknow

In a significant development, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath took swift action on Saturday to address allegations of paper leak surrounding the Review Officer/Assistant Review Officer (Preliminary) Examinations-2023, conducted by the Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission (UPPSC) on February 11 and ordered cancellation of both the exams.

Following reports of certain questions allegedly circulating on social media, the chief minister conducted a thorough review of the situation.

In response to public concerns, the government promptly issued a statement urging individuals to provide evidence substantiating the claims of question paper leaks.

Upon careful examination of the evidence presented to the government and the report submitted by the UPPSC, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath directed the immediate postponement and subsequent cancellation of both sessions of the Review Officer/Assistant Review Officer (Preliminary) Examination-2023, which took place on February 11, a government spokesman said here on Saturday.

The chief minister emphasised the need for transparency and fairness in the examination process, stating that a fresh examination will be conducted within the next six months to ensure a fair and impartial assessment of all candidates.

In addition to the decision to reschedule the examination, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has instructed the case to be referred to the Special Task Force (STF) of the state. The STF will be tasked with identifying individuals involved in the alleged criminal activities of leaking examination materials. Strict legal and punitive actions will be taken against those found responsible.

The chief minister emphasised the urgency of the STF investigation, expecting swift results. He assured the public that all individuals involved in compromising the integrity of the examination will face appropriate consequences.

“The government remains committed to upholding the sanctity of the examination process and ensuring a level playing field for all aspiring candidates,” the chief minister said in a statement issued here.

Earlier, the government had ordered the cancellation of the police constables recruitment examination in which papers had leaked on February 17 and 18. The STF is also probing this matter.
