The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) which recruits personnel for various government departments through competitive examinations has urged aspirants to refrain from unfair practices.

The commission has warned that any unfair practice will be considered as serious misconduct and candidates will be debarred or disqualified from examination.

“The Commission has time & again brought to the notice of candidates and other stakeholders that anyone found to be disclosing, publishing, reproducing, transmitting, storing or facilitating transmission & 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 & will be debarred/disqualified from exam,” the Commission said in a notice dated April 19.

“Disciplinary & legal action would be taken against such candidates or persons/ individuals involved as per rules & such matters would be reported to police, if necessary,” the notice added.

The SSC further advised that candidates must also refrain from creating any obstruction during the conduct of examination. 

“If any candidate is found obstructing the conduct of exam or creating disturbances at the exam venue, his/her candidature shall be summarily cancelled. Such candidates shall also be liable to be debarred from future exam of the Commission & legal proceedings could be initiated against him/her,” it said.

The Commission said the instructions will be applicable for all examinations conducted by it.
