Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board (JKSSB) Chairman Rajesh Sharma Wednesday stated that the computer based examinations for various posts scheduled from March 16 to April 5, 2023 were deferred due to “technical reasons.”
Amid intensified protests of JKSSB job aspirants, late Tuesday evening, the Board had notified the deferment of its lined up exams (of Account Assistants and Junior Engineers), including those scheduled from March 16, 2023.
“It is hereby notified that the Computer Based Examinations for various posts scheduled from March 16, 2023 to April 5, 2023 are hereby deferred till further intimation,” read a notice of the Controller of Examinations, JKSSB.
“There was some technical issue behind the deferment decision. These were the technicalities, whose completion was utmost necessary to ensure a fool-proof fair and transparent exam process. It was related to the audit process of exam centres. The process involving checking the computer systems, their software besides their physical condition (i.e., they are not damaged etc.,) was still going on,” Sharma said, while responding to a query seeking reason for the postponement of its scheduled exams.
“Besides, some of the candidates too had again approached us seeking deferment,” he said, when his attention was sought towards agitating JKSSB job aspirants.
JKSSB job aspirants have been agitating on roads both in Jammu and in Srinagar for the past fortnight or so, seeking postponement of exams, ban on Aptech agency from conducting exams, technical probe into exams conducted it (Aptech) and law against those involved in paper leak.
