New Delhi: The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) has taken a decision to cancel the Paper 1 of the Multi Tasking Staff (MTS) - Non-Technical - Examination 2016 held on April 30, 2017. Yesterday, reports emerged that a paper to select junior staff in central government departments was leaked, during the SSC MTS examination. This prompted the SSC to order re-examination of the test for select candidates only.
Due to a very large number of applications, the SSC is conducting tests daily in shifts-- morning and afternoon--to select the Multi Tasking Staff (MTS).
"The Staff Selection Commission has taken a decision to cancel the (Paper-I) (Afternoon Shift) of the MTS (Non-Technical) Examination 2016 held on 30th April 2017, because the said paper was found to be compromised. The re-examination for only those candidates who appeared in this shift will be held in due course and the candidates would be suitably informed accordingly. The inconvenience caused to the candidates is regretted", said a notification from the Staff Selection Commission.
Earlier, a report from the Press Trust of India said that the SSC has taken a decision to cancel the Paper-I (afternoon shift) of the MTS (Non-Technical) Examination, 2016 held on April 30, 2017, because the said paper was found to be compromised, a release issued by the Personnel Ministry said.
SSC had earlier notified for recruitment to the post of Multi Tasking (Non-Technical) Staff in Different States and Union Territories Examination in 2016.
