In a recent ruling, the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) has cancelled the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) Combined Graduate Level Examination 2013 entirely and ordered to conduct the exam afresh for all candidates appeared from any centre on 21 April 2013 and 19 May 2013. This decision has been taken in view of the question papers leaked scenario that occurred in 2013.
The candidates from 7 centres who have already reappeared on 27 April 2014 are exempted from sitting in the fresh examination for SSC CGL 2013.
Earlier, as per the SSC notification, the re-exam for SSC Combined Graduate Level Examination 2013 was announced for only those candidates who appeared from Lucknow, Patna, Allahabad, Delhi, Jaipur, Shimla and Dehradun centers. The re-exam for these 7 centers has already been conducted successfully on 27 April 2014. The reason of re-examination was the use of unfair means during examination as was reported in the region.
Now, the SSC Combined Graduate Level Examination 2013 will be re-conducted across all the centers in India, except at those 7 centres.
As per the Delhi Police filed report in the case, the SSC CGLE 2013 Tier-I and II exam papers were leaked before starting of the exam, that too from various centres, hence the exam of 2013 had to be scrapped by bench of CAT members Raj Vir Sharma and Shekhar Agarwal.
A total of 14 people are arrested in the matter, including a policeman for their alleged involvement in the case.
The Combined Graduate Level Tier-I examination 2013 conducted by Staff Selection Commission was originally held on 21 April 2013 and 19 May 2013 across various centers throughout the country. Around 12 lacs candidates appeared in the test.
Subsequently, the eligible candidates appeared for Tier-II test on 28 September 2013 and 29 September 2013.
