Chandigarh:

Taking cognizance of a plea seeking cancellation of the written examination recently conducted by the Haryana Public Service Commission (HPSC) for recruitment on naib tehsildar’s post, the Punjab and Haryana high court has fixed July 8 for hearing the petition The matter came under HC scanner after Bhiwani resident Devender Singh and seven other candidates who took the exam, filed a petition, seeking re-examination. Their contention is that despite the arrest of several persons for allegedly leaking the question paper for selection of naib tehsildars, the commission has not cancelled the examination.


The petitioner informed the HC that the exam papers were leaked in Karnal and police were able to nab a whole gang of persons who were involved in supplying the same to a large number of candidates.

“When the paper was leaked, then the sanctity of the test was itself lost and the HPSC should have cancelled the same and ordered re-examination. It was just one gang that was caught. What about the other or others who were not caught or detected and the persons to whom it was further circulated, as today just a click of button on phone sends the same to thousands,” the petitioners’ counsel Saurabh Dalal submitted to the HC.

Dalal also contended that the state machinery and the HPSC were not capable of handling and conducting the exam and even if a single candidate got the answer key to the leaked paper, the future of thousands of other candidates would be at stake on account of unfair means by some.

He also submitted that the state and the HPSC should employ fool-proof measures of conducting examinations so that the future of those who have put in years of hard work and dedication is not jeopardized. The petitioners have prayed for cancellation of the examination held on May 26 and re-conduct of the written examination.

In July 2015 and May 2018, the HPSC had issued advertisement for the selection of 70 posts of naib tehsildar (Group-B) in revenue and disaster management department, Haryana. The commission conducted the written exam in various districts of Haryana on May 26.

The Haryana Police claim to have busted a gang allegedly involved in leaking the examination paper at Rewari on May 26. The paper leak was cracked by Rewari Police and the special task force (STF), Gurgaon, on the basis of secret information. According to preliminary investigation, the paper was leaked in Karnal and solved in Gurgaon. The answer keys were to be provided to candidates in Rewari centre but the accused were nabbed before that. The HPSC declared the result of the written examination on June 13
