GUWAHATI, March 7 - APSC�s acting chairman Brig (retd) Ranjit Borthakur today informed that the State�s Advocate General has advised the commission to re-conduct the 14 examinations whose results could not be declared due to various reasons in the wake of the cash-for-jobs scam in the commission.
These examinations were held during the tenure of disgraced former Chairman Rakesh Paul.
�Most of the examinations were interview based. Some of them were also conducted by us. But to maintain transparency and to ensure that there is no scope for any doubts, we are holding all the interviews again,� he said.
The chairman said the examinations to the post of BDOs were held in two phases � one written and another interview. The entire process will be conducted again and the candidates will have to sit for the written examination again. There were around 21,000 candidates.
�In the next couple of days, we will be making a calendar and we will try to complete the recruitment process as soon as we can,� he said.
