Kannan Raghupathy – Kudos to Ms Neetu Singh for exposing leak of Question Papers of MTS Examination 2017 of SSC taking huge personal risk. It is solely because of this exposure that SSC has now decided to cancel the OMR mode of this examination and conduct computer based examination.
But, who is responsible for wasteful expenditure of Rs 50 crores app on the cancelled examination? I do not find the Annual Reports of SSC on its website. It will be interesting to see how the expenditure of SSC has gone up since 2012-13 and whether it is proportionate to increase in the number of candidates.
