The staff selection commission has postponed the Combined Graduate Level (CGL) Tier-III amidst the ongoing controversy of the tier-II paper leak. The descriptive paper which was supposed to held on 31 March 2018 is now shifted to May 2018. However, the exact date for the same will notify soon.
The SSC-CGL exam is conducted every year to recruit eligible candidates for the positions like Assistant Accounts Officer, Assistant Audit Officers, Central Excise Inspector, Superintendent, Inspector of Income Tax, Assistant Enforcement Officers etc. and many other vacancies. The authority conducts exam in four phases: Tier-I & II (Computer Based Exam), Tier-III (Descriptive Paper) and Tier-IV (Computer Proficiency or Skill Test).
The re-examination of the SSC CGL tier II paper that took place on February 21 was conducted later on March 9. The leak of this paper has sparked protests from examinees since February 27, seeking an investigation into the matter. The commission recommended a CBI inquiry into the alleged paper leak after a delegation of protesting students recently met SSC chairman Ashim Khurana.
Candidates of CGL 2016 and CHSL 2015 also had complained of not receiving the appointment letters. 10,661 candidates who successfully qualified the exam were allotted posts but then their allotment was put on hold because some of the candidates who were rejected filed a court case claiming that their papers were not checked properly. Later on, the Commission came up with a clarification that it is for the User departments concerned to expedite the issuance of the appointment letters to the nominated candidates.
The official test date of the phase-III exam paper will be announced soon on the official website. Candidates are advised to keep an eye and regularly visit commission’s official site: ssc.nic.in. Candidates aspiring for SSC Jobs must check the site for new updates.
