RTI reveals copies of disqualified candidate checked by MPSC
A candidate of Manipur Civil Service competitive examination, 2010 Hanjabam Bobby, has alleged that Manipur Public Service Commission (MPSC) has manipulated his marks secured in the examination.
He had filed an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act to ascertain himself about his weak areas when he was not shortlisted in the main exam. The reply informed him that he could only obtain the photo copy of answers script of his general English paper, in which he got 135 out of 300 marks. The PIO had mentioned in the reply that as per the examination rules of the MPSC his other papers were not evaluated since he had not qualified in the general English paper. However, answers scripts of all his papers were found evaluated when collected from MPSC office.
Bobby raised the question that if he was not qualified in general English; his other papers should not have been evaluated as such evaluation will be a gross violation of the rules prescribed by the Gazette of the Manipur Civil Services Combined Competitive Examination 2010.
The total marks scored by him in the examination was 1343 which is just 8 marks lesser than the topper’s written marks and he would have got fourth position in the written examination.
The candidate is likely to move court for remedy.
