Clarification from the MPSC on Imphal Times article; MPSC Examination for District Information Officer held on 25th August, 2017

It has been brought to the notice of the Commission that three candidates who downloaded their Admit Cards for the above examination got the dates wrong in the first download due to technical glitch (i.e. Admit Card showing 31st August instead of 25th August). Due to the technical glitch, the three aspirants could not sit for the examination held on 25th August. There has been no change in the schedule of the examination from the beginning of the notification. The candidates concerned could have counter checked from any other source for confirmation if there is any change of date of examination. The technical glitch in these cases are being investigated with “Cube Ten” responsible for running the particular programme. Not with standing, the technical mistake is regretted.
The Commission considered the above issue on priority and took a decision to provide opportunity to appear for the posts of Public Relation Officer (PRO) examination to candidates who had not earlier applied for the said post, to be held on 28th August. Accordingly, the last date was relaxed for such candidates, whose admit card showed wrong date. However, only one candidates applied to take the offer and arrangements were made accordingly. It has been learnt later that the same candidate did not appear in the examination for the said post (PRO) on 28th August due to objection raised by few candidates out of 124 candidates, inside the examination hall, just before the commencement of the said examination.

Someone has also written in Imphal Times dated 27th August that candidates with Master’s Degree in science has been allowed to appear for the examination held on 25th August. It is also alleged that these persons are relatives of MPSC staff and that these vacancies have already been sold out to politicians. It is clarified that only candidates with Graduate/Master’s Degree in Journalism and/or Mass Communications/Communications, have been allowed to appear in the examination after due examination of the course content/papers appeared by the candidates for their respective degrees. NO(no) candidate with Master’s Degree (Science) or in any other stream has been allowed.  It is unfortunate that such unfounded, baseless and despicable allegation with a figment of dark imagination have been put in public domain. Such writings have the potential to poison the young minds of our people. MPSC appeals to all concerned to refrain from such with allegations. However, the Commission welcomes any positive suggestion/feedback at all time.
