 The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) has warned of stern legal action against candidates who create disturbances during the conduct of any recruitment examination conducted by the Commission.

In its latest notice, the SSC has emphatically urged the candidates to refrain from creating any obstruction during the conduct of exams.

“If any candidate is found obstructing the conduct of the exam or creating disturbances at exam venue, his/her candidature shall be summarily cancelled,” the SSC notification read.

The SSC has further clarified that such candidates shall also be liable to be debarred from future exams of the Commission and legal proceedings could be initiated against him/her.

The Commission has also issued a guideline to check malpractices during the conduct of the examinations.

“Anyone found to be disclosing, publishing, reproducing, transmitting, storing or facilitating transmission and storage of test contents in any form or any information therein in whole or part thereof or by any means i.e., verbal or written, electronic or mechanical or taking away the rough papers supplied in the exam centre or found to be in unauthorized possession of test content will be considered as serious misconduct and will be debarred/ disqualified from exam,” the circular read.

Similarly, disciplinary and legal action would be taken against such candidates as per rules and such matters would be reported to police, if necessary, it added.
