SSC CGL 2017: Government’s Response On The Leak of Examination Papers

The term that has been common nowadays in the context of Government Exams is ‘Cheating’. The involvement by any individual in such malpractices is heinous and it besets the sanctity of the conduct of Govt Examinations. Considering the aftermath of this atrocious practice, the Government Recruitment Agencies, after the allegations of leakage of question papers in recruitment examinations subsequently attended by cancellation of said examination and re-conduct thereof in order to avoid any untoward incident in the conduct of recruitment examinations have taken various steps including the following:

Conduct of examinations on Computer based mode for securing the examination paper and avoiding incidents of paper leakage.
Deployment of low powered jammers in the examination venues to block CDMA, GSM, 3G, 4G, Wi-fi and Bluetooth devices.
CERT-IN certification for examination process and use of CCTV cameras.

In written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today, Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space Minister, Dr. Jitendra Singh informed that there was no leakage of question papers in the Combined Graduate Level (CGL) Examination, 2017. Lately, allegations of cheating in the conduct of SSC CGL 2017 Exam at certain exam venues thus leading to a prolonged protest, SSC recommended for an impartial enquiry by CBI to reaffirm the faith of the candidates in the examination process. CBI has registered a Preliminary Enquiry case on 08.03.2018 after Government decided to proceed the matter to CBI for a free and fair enquiry as per recommendations of SSC. However, the attached statement ‘’The said examination has not been cancelled, therefore, question of re-conduct does not arise’’ in itself is a summed up answer to many queries.
