SSC CGL Exam Scam/Paper Leak 2018 : Everything You Need to Know About

If you are not aware and were busy in celebrating festivals and enjoying long weekend, the aspirants of SSC CGL 2017 are protesting since 27th February against alleged cheating and paper leak, slept outside SSC office on hunger strike at CGO Complex, New Delhi last night. Today, they ate their food on the road.

The protesting candidates are demanding the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) enquiry into the allegations of scam and paper leak on Staff Selection Commission (SSC)’s Combined Graduate Level (CGL ) tier II exam held recently in February 2018.

On February 17, 2018, on the first day of CGL tier 2 exam, SSC had to cancel the second shift exam at one venue — Animate Infotech, Mohan Cooperative Industrial Estate — in New Delhi on the basis of “prime facie evidence it had received”. According to the commission, “Prima-facie evidence clearly indicated that the entire episode was created by some unruly elements, with a malafide intention, to try to disrupt the examination”. (Read that notice HERE).
On February 24, the SSC released a notice saying that the exam held on February 21 was delayed due to “technical reasons” and will be re-conducted on March 9, 2018 (Read that notice HERE).

As soon as the notice came out, there was an outrage among all the students. various videos & messages started circulating on social media which indicated that some questions got leaked.This led to the speculation among candidates that cheating took place in some exam centers. Which eventually led to the cancellation of the Quantitative Aptitude Exam.

On Wednesday, SSC Chairman Ashim Khurana issued a notice and said that the protests are being “instigated and sponsored by two coaching institutes/ agencies with vested interests.”

“It has been brought to the notice of the Commission that the present agitation going on since yesterday near the Office of the Commission by some candidates of CGLE (Tier-II) 2017, is being actively instigated and sponsored by two Coaching Institutes/ agencies with vested interests,” said Khurana.

He said the SSC had agreed to meet the representatives of the agitating group and during that meeting, they were directed to furnish substantive evidence in support of their allegations. For the past few days, the students have been doing exactly the same. Using the hashtag #SSCscam, they have been sharing several incidents of leakage. What’s ridiculous is that the government body would rather see students waste their time in investigations (that the SSC is supposed to conduct) than study for their next paper or work at respectable jobs.

This isn’t the first time that the Staff Selection Commission is facing criticisms and allegations of corruption.

Students coming out in such huge numbers for their rights is a move that needs to be appreciated by each of us and we hope that justice is meted out soon.
