Paper leak scam alleged in SSC CGL 2016 exam

While the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) is preparing to conduct the re-examination of CGL 2016 held in a particular shift, the social media has picked up pace with #CGLE2016Scam. The individuals trending the hashtag are demanding a probe into the alleged paper leakage. In the same notice, SSC had said that one shift of CGL Tier-1 held on August 27, 2016, has been scrapped and a re-exam would be conducted. SSC is expected to release another notice in this regard soon.

CGL scam

An online portal – The Viral Vent has said that the CGLE paper 2016 got leaked on August 27 in the evening shift. One candidate named Aashish Kumar was caught red-handed at an examination centre – T S Gurukkul, Bhikhanpur, Bhagalpur, Bihar by the CAPF Constable during routine frisking one hour before the commencement of the exam. It has been reported that the candidate was caught with the answers to the questions that were included in the examination to held from 4.15 pm on the same day. Another point towards the alleged paper leak is that the same campus where Aashish was caught, provides coaching for SSC exams. The big point is that maybe the institute was involved in the alleged paper leak and there were more candidates like Aashish who could not be caught. The same has been promoted at social media platforms Facebook and Twitter.

Indian Social Activist Girish Baluni was quoted by The Viral Vent saying, “We need a corruption free India, hence we wish that the future of all the candidates should be secured.” He further said, “Why re-examination for only 27 August 2nd shift batch? The appeal to the Hon’ Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the SSC Chairman is to re-schedule the entire examination for all the 43 batches who have appeared from 27 August to 11 September across the country.”

“One candidate was caught simply means that there were several other such candidates who were not caught, putting a big question mark on the credibility of this entire selection exam process. Citing the administrative reasons, SSC cannot answer why this exam was cancelled and is, therefore, trying to cover up its misdeeds,” Mr. Baluni questioned.

An online petition at was also started by an anonymous team three weeks back. So far, only 228 people have supported the petition, but as 15 lakh candidates have appeared for the test, the petition is likely to gain much more support. The petition aims to ask PMO to order a CBI enquiry in the exam paper leak.

Another Point:

The allegations on paper leak may not be completely correct as it is not the first time that SSC has cancelled the exam held in a particular shift. When and as SSC has found out any irregularity in the exam process, the Commission has simply put up a notice announcing a re-exam. The candidates are scared, maybe, because of the reason that SSC has just notified “administrative reasons” – the main cause of the re-exam. Well, in this time, ExamsWatch team advises all the candidates to keep faith in one of the biggest organization of our country and wait for the official word on the same.
