Ruckus even on 2nd day of patwari exam

PEB to re-schedule exam, derived candidates hold protest

Chronicle Reporter, Bhopal

Many candidates couldn’t appear in the examination for the recruitment of patwaris even on the second day on Sunday and the chaos and mismanagement that was seen on the first day continued on second day also.

A large number of candidates who couldn’t get opportunity to take the exam created ruckus and shouted slogans outside the exam centres. The server failure affected the examination on Sunday as well and about 5,000 candidates couldn’t appear in the test.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has directed the Vyapam officials to rectify the situation. Candidates again said that there was problem in verification and they were turned away.

Many others alleged that they were mistreated at the examination centres. However, MPPEB Director Chandramohan Thakur claimed that no problem occurred during the exam’s second shift on Saturday and both the shifts Sunday.

Giving a clean chit to the TCS – which is responsible for conducting the exam, Thakur said that the problem resulted due to technical reasons. New security provisions have also been made.

In response to a query regarding blacklisting the company, he said that the terms and conditions are fixed in the contract. Penalty would be imposed in case of shortcoming.

Blacklisting would be considered only if a major violation takes place. Unable to explain who should be held responsible for the problem, Thakur said that investigation would be carried out to fix responsibility.

In response to queries over certain candidates being deprived in spite of ‘Aadhar’ verification at 2-3 centres, he said that necessary action would be taken after investigation.

More known across the country due to widespread inconsistencies that took place in entrance and recruitment examinations, the MPPEB – also known by its Hindi acronym Vyapam – had invited applications for filling 9,235 patwari posts.

More than 10 lakh applications were received for it. The examination, which commenced yesterday, is scheduled to continue till December 29. In the first shift yesterday, about 8,000 candidates were left out of the examination.

This led to a big ruckus at several centers. Certain aspirants reportedly faced difficulties at some centres even today and later reached the MPPEB office.
