TSPSC admits of minor glitches in conduct of VRO exams

Hyderabad: The Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) on Monday admitted of minor glitches in the conduct of exam for the post of Village Revenue Officers on September 16.

“Although the TSPSC has successfully conducted the largest exam for the post of Village Revenue Officers on 16-09-2018 without any major issues,

a section of media has given more prominence to minor incidents without signifying that the exam was held peacefully where arrangements were made for 10.58 lakh candidates across State of Telangana and a good percentage of 78.46% attendance was recorded,” TSPSC Secretary A.Vani Prasad said in a media statement today.

She said the TSPSC has worked in exemplary coordination with the Government of Telangana, District Administration and relevant Departments. “Government has issued a Circular designating District Collectors as District Authorities, Joint Collector as Conducting Officers, DROs as Coordinating Officers and RDOs as the Liaison Officers.

It is under their keen supervision and constant monitoring, the exam was held smoothly without any major issues at any of the centres. However, in a section of media, it was reported that women candidates were forced to remove “Mangal Suthra” in an exaggerated and misleading manner,” he said.

Vani Prasad clarified that the TSPSC had not issued instructions to remove “Mangalsutra”. “Being aware of such complaint that arose in the previous exams, it was clearly informed to all the District Collectors during the video conference also during the Press Conference held on 14-09-2018 that such actions are not correct.

In a stray incident where at one center in Medak district, initially a few women candidates were asked to remove their “Mangalsutra” to allow them into exam centre.

But once the issue was brought to their notice of the Commission, immediate instructions were issued that such steps are against Commission’s guidelines and no such instructions were given to the Chief Superintendents.

Joint Collector and IWO Narsapur visited the center and ensured that no such inconvenience is caused to women candidates,” she said.

She informed that the on Sunday itself the TSPSC has instructed the District Collector to conduct an inquiry into the incident and send a detailed report to the Commission.

Accordingly, the Medak District Collector immediately deputed the Joint Collector and RDO and conducted the inquiry and submitted a detailed report to the Commission on today.

In the Report, the District Collector informed that only 4 to 5 candidates were inconvenienced in the beginning of the exam and immediately the mistake was rectified.

“Commissioner has taken a serious note of the incident and directed the District Collector to blacklist the center and to take appropriate action to ensure that such incidents do not recur in future,” the TSPSC Secretary added.

Irregularities at TSPSC smacks of corruption: BJP

Hyderabad: The Bharatiya Janata Party said it suspects serious corruption within the Telangana State Public Service Commissioner (TSPSC) and believes that it has become a chronically mismanaged arm of the government.

“The high court has on 12th June stayed the selection process for 1034 posts that TSPSC notified and had conducted a recruitment test. There are serious irregularities in the entire selection process, which came to the fore with a petition on the same.

The commission has violated its own guidelines, which it had stated before the High Court in an earlier case. It had listed few individuals who have been declared ineligible by court as eligible candidates despite they have been established to have tampered with the bar code and OMR sheets.

This is not the first such case, in reference to shady administration of TSPSC,” BJP Spokesperson Krishna Saagar Rao said in a statement on Tuesday.

The BJP leader said adhocism, tentative scheduling of tests, repeated postponements and cancellations of notifications have become the order of the day at TSPSC.

“BJP strongly recommends revamp of the TSPSC as this body is being mismanaged thoroughly and is exhibiting all signs of a corrupt organization,” he demanded adding that over 5 lakh young men and women in Telangana State were being affected directly by the mismanagement of this recruitment body.

BJP also demanded a probe by a Special Investigative Team to look into the irregularities, nepotism and corruption in TSPSC. It is important that bodies like this function professionally, independently and free of corrupt practices, he said. (INN)
