SSC CGL 2017 not to be scrapped

The Supreme Court (SC) has declined to scrap the SSC CGL 2017 exam, which has been under scrutiny due to allegations of paper leak.

Advocate, Prashant Bhushan contended before the apex court that according to a report by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), there were several cases of malpractice, including paper leak. Bhushan’s client had sought enquiry into the alleged paper leak and scrapping of the SSC CGL 2017 exam.

Earlier, a seven-member panel of SC had agreed that there were many loopholes in the SSC exam process. The panel was headed by retired SC judge, Justice GS Singhvi and included member such as Nandan Nilekani, Infosys co-founder; Vijay Bhatkar, Computer Scientist; RL Karandikar, Mathematician; and Sanjay Bhardwaj. The panel also had a member each from the Centre and CBI.

According to SC, Bhushan’s argument is to cancel the exam while they are reluctant to do so. The court said, the criminal court will look into the matter.

The representative from the Centre, ANS Nadkarni, Additional Solicitor General said that CBI conducted the inquiry into the matter and the government would accept the committees recommendations.

In May 2019, the Supreme Court had allowed the declaration of SSC CGL result 2017. However, the result would be subjected to the final outcome of the case.

Meanwhile, SSC CGL tier-I 2020 exam is underway. The exam is being conducted from March 3-9 in online mode. Check SSC CGL exam dates.
