HC strictures on OAS examination
In 2006, candidates were selected by the OPSC for filling up vacancies in 378 OAS officer posts in Class-Two category . However, all the 378 candidates were later given appointment as Class-One officers which was challenged in the High Court through a PIL by one Sarada Mohanty. The OPSC again published advertisement for appointment of 494 OAS officers while the matter was pending in the High Court. The High Court stricture for OPSC was delivered on the basis of a plea to cancel the latest examination for selection of OAS officers.
