SSC asks for grievances from candidates in CGL tier 2 exam

SSC CGL exam

The Combined Graduate Level (CGL) Tier 2 exam 2016 has been conducted by the SSC from November 30 to December 2. While over 14.82 lakh aspirants had taken CGL Tier 1 exam, only around 1.5 lakh were declared qualified for Tier 2 exam. The Tier 1 exam was mired with some irregularities which even forced the Commission to reschedule one entire shift exam. However, SSC Chairman assured the aspirants to remain calm and believe in the Commission for fair and transparent examination processes.

While the aspirants were hopeful that there irregularities will not affect the Tier 2 exam, the very first day of the test (November 30) witnessed something many had never dreamt of. In the evening of November 30, one video clip (allegedly filmed inside a CGL Test venue) popped up in the social media. Many media houses picked up the clip and this result in an immediate response from SSC Chairman.

SSC Chairman Ashim Khuran, in a press notice issued on November 30, said that the examination was conducted successfully and the Tier 2 exam would be re-conducted for 13 test venues which stand cancelled due to technical problems. While the SSC Chairman did to a certain extent accepted technical glitches during the conduct of CGL Tier 2 exam, he ruled out the allegations of cheating or malpractice.

In a fresh move, SSC issued another notification on December 6 regarding grievance redressal for CGL Tier 2 exam. The notice came in the wake of repeated representations from the candidates regarding issues they faced during the exam. The notice reads, “The Commission has received some representations from candidates who appeared in the examination expressing their individual grievances with regard to conduct of the Tier-II examination. The representations received up to 9th December, 2016 would be comprehensively and objectively examined, the process for which is already in progress and would be completed in a time bound manner. The Commission would make a concreted effort to ensure that no injustice is done to any genuine candidate and that there would also be no compromise on merit based selection for this examination.”

While the notice does mention the Commission’s efforts to maintain transparency in the examination process by giving the candidates a say, it does not mention the exact procedure to file a grievance complaint. To this PagalGuy spoke to Gajendra Singh Thakur, Regional Director, SSC Northern Region. Mr. Thakur said to PagalGuy, “All complaints regarding the SSC CGL Tier 2 2016 exam have to be sent to the Regional Directors of the candidates’ respective SSC regions. They can find the email address from the respective regional SSC website.”

It was seen that the candidates were filing their complaints with the Public Grievance Portal, which stands of no use as SSC would entertain the complaints received to its regional heads only.
