'It needs to be understood that the Commission is tasked with a much larger responsibility of conducting every year 8 mandated exam, 3 limited departmental competitive exam and recruitment for selection posts in various departments/ ministries in Government of India,' said Ashim Khurana, Chairman, SSC. This year the Commission has also conducted Delhi Police exam for Constable post and Scientific Assistant recruitment in India Meterological Department.
Issues relating to CHSL 2015 and CGL 2016 appointments have been trending on social media websites since a long time. Every alternate post hints the long wait of candidates who have qualified the examination but have not been appointed yet.
CHSL 2015 final result was declared on 28 August 2017 and 9194 candidates had qualified it. The Commission has clarified that it has sent the files of 8900 qualified candidates to the concerned department in September-October 2017; files of the remaining candidates are being verified. 'It is for the User departments concerned to expedite the issuance of the appointment letters to the nominated candidates,' says the Commission.
Likewise, the Commission is yet to process the files of 10661 SSC CGL 2016 qualified candidates; 9500 files have been verified as of now. SSC gave 'zero' marks to few candidates in the Tier 3 exam of CGL 2016 for violating mandatory instructions. Such candidates approached CAT and were granted relief for having their answer books evaluated.
However in order to protect the interest of the bona fide successful candidates, the Commission in December 2017 approached DoP&T and DoLA to file an appeal against the CAT order.
Appointment letters to the successful candidates of CGL 2016 will be released within February 2018.
