“There is no political irregularity in public service, even if someone has done it or caused it, it will be detected before and after the publication of the final result and action will be taken,” says Regmi, the chairman of the commission, “Our system is like that.” We also took strict action against those who committed irregularities.
According to him, the Public Service Commission has earned the unwavering trust of all Nepalis because it has adopted the basic principle of fair competition.
What action will be taken against those who commit irregularities?
According to the nature of the irregularity, such examinees are subject to action ranging from cancellation of the examination to not being able to participate in the public service examination for five years.
According to the Public Service Commission, there are 2 women who wrote the wrong roll number. They have been punished by not being able to participate in public service exams for one year.
Similarly, there are 3 people, 2 women and 1 man, who joined the exam without applying. 1 woman who asked both the writing assistant and the inspector to write the answers in turn has also been punished. His examination has been canceled and both the writing assistant and invigilator have been barred from appearing in the examination.
A man who hired a writing assistant against the rules was also prosecuted. It is mentioned in the 63rd annual report of the Public Service Commission that his examination was cancelled.
According to Public Service Commission Information Officer Devi Prasad Subedi, disabled examinees (especially visually impaired) have hired writing assistants. The helper reads the question and tells it to the examinee and the answer given by the examinee is recorded in the answer sheet by the helper.
Additional time is provided at the rate of 10 minutes per hour to those candidates who require assistant writers. For example, if the exam time is three hours, then a total of 30 minutes more time is provided at the rate of 10 minutes per hour.
Assistant writer should be a person who has obtained educational qualification one level lower than the minimum educational qualification to be eligible to participate in the examination of the respective post.
For example, a person who has passed the graduate level exam can give the official level exam, while his co-author must have passed the proficiency certificate level at most. Similarly, a person who has passed at least Proficiency Certificate level can give the Subba exam, while his co-author should have passed SLC or SEE at most. But a person who has passed SLC or SEE can participate in the buyer’s examination, if his writing assistant is also recognized even if he has passed SLC or SEE.
The Public Service Commission has been conducting the written examination for filling the posts of security agencies and organized organizations since the financial year 2016/17 in addition to the civil service. At present, the public service conducts examinations for filling the posts of 95 institutions/bodies including security agencies.
