The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) is now contemplating criminal and disciplinary penal action against two candidates, who claimed that they were recommended by the Board in the Civil Services Examination 2022 against two roll numbers of genuinely recommended candidates.

In its latest notification, UPSC has categorically stated that the claims of both persons are fake and they have forged documents to buttress their claims.

In the first case, one Aysha Makrani, who is claiming her final recommendation by the UPSC, is found to have forged documents in her favour. Her actual roll number is 7805064 and she appeared in the preliminary exam held on June 5, 2022, and scored only 22.22 marks in general studies paper I and 21.09 marks in general studies paper II.

“As per the requirement of examination rules, she was required to score at least 66 marks in paper II. She has not only failed to qualify in paper II but scored far less marks than the cut-off for paper I, which was 88.22 for the unreserved category for the preliminary examination of the year 2022. Hence, Aysha Makrani has failed at the preliminary stage of the exam,” the UPSC notice read.

On the other hand, Ayasha Fatima, bearing roll number 7811744, is the genuine candidate, who has been recommended by the UPSC, securing 184th rank in the final result of the Civil Services Examination, 2022.

Similarly, Shri Tushar of Rewari, Haryana had applied for the Civil Services Preliminary Exams and was allotted roll number 2208860. He scored minus 22.89 marks in general studies paper I and 44.73 marks in general studies paper II.

“It is confirmed that Tushar Kumar, bearing roll number 15213606 of Bihar, is the genuine candidate who has been recommended by the UPSC at rank 44,” the UPSC notice read.

“By doing so both Aysha Makrani and Shri Tushar have acted in contravention of the provisions of the Rules of the Civil Services Examination, 2022 notified by the government of India (Department of Personnel and Training.) Therefore, in accordance with the provisions of the Examination Rules, the UPSC is contemplating both criminal as well as disciplinary penal action against both the candidates for their fraudulent acts,” the UPSC notice added.
