It is pertinent to mention here that the Odisha Public Service Commission (OPSC) recently rejected applications of as many as 7039 Odisha Civil Services aspirants. Sources said that applications of most of the candidates were rejected on the ground of not furnishing address, qualification and physical measurement details.
Besides, many candidates also failed to pay examination fee and uploaded their photographs while filling up the online application form which led to their rejection.
The OPSC had published the notification for the Odisha Civil Services Examination-2021 on December 31, 2021 to fill up 405 posts and services coming under Odisha Civil Services (Group A and Group B). The vacancy was increased to 433 later. Online applications were invited from interested candidates from January 10, 2022 to February 18, 2022.
