Last Minute Drama…

26 Sep

Hi Friends and Co- Bloggers, this post is about a very important and current issue. In India, we have a private sector and the public sector. The public sector provides employment on the basis of various criterion prescribed according to the job. One such recruitment institution is the Staff Selection Commission (SSC).  There is another institute also called UPSC.  But, we are here to hear the story of SSC.

Now, this institute had conducted examination for the Combined Graduate Level Exam for the year 2013 as it always does. This exam is conducted in three levels; first two are exams wherein objective type questions are asked and the third level is interview. So, this time the problem started with the first level itself. Just before the exam had to start, there was a rumor that the said exam paper has been leaked. The information  was leaked on the day of examination itself. And many people didn’t knew about it. So, the exam was conducted successfully, but at the age we are living in, this information spread over twitter and facebook like fire. Many people didn’t gave heed to these and thought that once the exam has been held, this rumor will probably not affect them. But maybe they were wrong.

The result of this exam was out soon and the consequences of leaking of paper were apparent. The cut off which always revolved around 85 marks showed an increase of almost 10 marks. Many candidates were really distressed, especially those for whom this time was the last chance to give exam.

One of the candidates, Nitant, who was not able to clear the exam and blamed it to the leaking of paper, played a master stroke. He kept quite until the second level of exam was to be held. He filed a petition against the second level exam on the partiality exercised in the first level, only three days before the second level of the exam was scheduled. This created again a fire but fierce one against this person by those who had passed the exam.

The Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) after going into the issue ordered for the stay of second level exam and after this notification, people were frightened to think that the whole exam of this year may not get cancelled.

But, to every body’s relief the same tribunal vacated the stay and ordered for the exam to be held as per the schedule.

And after a high voltage drama of 2 and a half days, every thing is same as it was.

But this whole drama ( which is not yet concluded…) what it teaches?? What questions does it raise??

How far is Nitant morally right, in exercising his right just two days before the exam?

He could have filed this case after the result was announced. There was a time lag of 1 month between the announcement of result and date of second exam, did he chose this particular date deliberately to demotivate candidates??

How far was CAT’s action justifiable in imposing a stay order on the exam??

How far were people justifiable in abusing Nitant and asking for exam to be held knowing somewhere that this man is not completely wrong…

    Its India. People and administration both don’t know how to use their rights.

      I don’t agree.. given this situation, I think Nitant has really played a masterstroke… he knows very well how to use it for own benefit…

    Well… what advantage did he get with the timing?

      the second level of exam was almost postponed… and if that would have happened… just imagine… one single individual being able to halt the whole process of SSC… about 2-3 lakhs of candidate’s future on stake…
