Cuttack: Refuting the allegation of irregularities in conduct of Assistant section Officer (ASO) examination, the Odisha Public Service Commission (OPSC) on Tuesday clarified that the test process was done in fair and absolute transparent manner.
“Absolute transparency was maintained in the entire process. The wild allegations leveled by a group of candidates are baseless. The bribery allegations are also meaningless. Merit is the only criteria,” OPSC chairperson Satyajit Mohanty said at a press meet.
Mohanty further added that the commission will upload the answer key and mark sheets of the candidates in the website as per the order of High Court. It will be done after announcement of final result, he said.
The mark sheets and answer keys will be uploaded as the rules of 2016, he informed.
The candidates are advised to inform the commission regarding any irregularities after publication of final results. “We are ready to accept their complaint and rectify, if required,” Mohanty said.
A group of candidates had hit the streets alleging large scale irregularities in the ASO examination. They alleged that some candidates didn’t appear the test, but their names came in the selection list.
The OPSC has issued the list of 1,104 successful candidates in the ASO Exam-2022 on November 7.
