PSC and its Claims of Probity & Transparency

By a PSC Candidate


I had applied for the post of Assistant Director/DTO, Department of Health & Medical Education in response to Notification No. 8-PSC(DR-P) of 2015 dated 21.07.2015 of the Public Service Commission.

The interview for the said post was conducted on 28.06.2016.

Unfortunately the PSC did not give publicity to the interview notice as was notified by the PSC vide No. PSC/DR/AP (Instru/Vocal/16 dated 17.06.2016.mandated under law and conducted the interview in a hush hush manner.

As a result I missed the interview since I was not informed about the interview date either personally or through mass media.

The interview notice uploaded by the commission on its website mentions that a copy of the same be sent to Directorate of Information for wide publicity through Print and Electronic Media.

However, I have come to understand that no such copy has been ever dispatched to the Directorate of Information.

It is clear that the Commission in its bid to accommodate its favourites has circumvented the system, played with the processes and made mockery of the efforts of the present Government to bring in transparency in the working of state institutions.

I request your goodself to kindly have a probe ordered into the matter and direct the Commission to re-conduct the interview.

With high hopes and expectations of justice.
