APPSC to trim down candidates for mains 6-Dec-2016
Andhra Pradesh,Dec 6

The Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) plans to cut down the number of candidates screened for filling available vacancies. The commission may adopt a 1:12 or 1:15 selection ratio (inviting 12 or 15 times the number of vacancies) for screening tests in future. At present, the ratio at screening tests for main examinations has been 1:50.

The APPSC will adopt a roster system at the time of screening test itself, which is absent at present. The commission is gearing up for computer-based tests (CBT) for the mains examinations as part of its different notifications.

It is getting equipped with infrastructure and computers to conduct CBT for only 50,000 candidates. With the infrastructure that is available with it at present, there would be a problem if the number of vacancies under any notification were more than 1,000.

APPSC chairman Prof. P. Uday Bhaskar said that they would release notification for both Group-I and Group-III by December-end.

“If we delay the release till January 2017, it would affect the prospects of some aspirants because the APPSC considers December 31 as the cut-off date for deciding age of the candidates. Considering our logistical and infrastructural limitations, we have been planning to trim down the number of candidates called for the mains exam from 1:50 to some 1:12 or 1:15,” Mr Uday Bhaskar said, adding that the recently released Group-II notification for 982 vacancies had drawn about 2.5 lakh applications by Saturday.

Meanwhile, the APPSC had released the results of screening test for the Assistant Executive Engineer (AEE) recruitment. For the 748 vacancies, the commission has has shortlisted about 37,400 candidates at a 1:50 ratio.

“We will introduce an Aadhaar-based biometric registration process at the examination halls. The examination centres will have CCTV cameras. The mains examination would be held on December 29 and 30 across the state for the AEE posts. From now on, we will implement the roster system at the time of screening test itself. We would call candidates of a certain community to the mains exams in the same proportion of posts earmarked for that community,” Uday Bhaskar added.

Age limit for Andhra Pradesh government jobs is now 42 7-Nov-2016
Andhra Pradesh,Nov 7

The Government of Andhra Pradesh has decided to relax upper age limit from 34 to 42 years for recruitment through Public Service Commission and other government recruiting agencies. Accordingly, a Government Order was issued by the general administration department on Saturday.

After the Telugu Desam came into power it had released a GO in September 2014 relaxing the upper age limit from 34 to 40 years. As there has been no recruitment after state bifurcation, the government has taken the decision of extending the age limit.

In the order, it is clearly specified that this increase in age limit is applicable for notifications to be released till September 30, 2017. State government authorities said that the bifurcation of the state had resulted in reduced employment opportunities in the state.

The enhancement of age limit is by two years for general category candidates; for reserved categories the relaxation will extend beyond as per their categories. The decision is said to be aimed at garnering the support of youth who are waiting for government jobs.

Six questions back to haunt AP Public Service Commission exams 17-Aug-2016
Andhra Pradesh,Aug 17

The controversy that stalled the recruitment of Group I posts in 2011 over six allegedly wrong answers in the key by the AP Public Service Commission for the preliminary examination has surfaced yet again before the Hyderabad High Court.

Though the PSCs of TS and AP have issued notifications to hold the Group I Main exam in September as per the old syllabus, and with relaxed age norms — for candidates who had appeared for the test in 2011 as per a Supreme Court order — some candidates who had passed the examination and even attended the interviews took up the matter with the High Court.

Their contention is that the earlier petitions are pending before the High Court for final disposal and that the Apex Court order is based on an interim order of the High Court; and that, without deciding on the issue, a fresh exam is unacceptable.

It’s 3 vs the rest

The dispute arose a couple of days before the date of commencement of the Group I Main exam. Three aspirants moved the AP administrative tribunal contending that the final answer key given by the APPSC for six questions for the preliminary exam was not correct and that conducting the main examination without rectifying the mistakes was illegal.

The tribunal too felt that answers for six questions were wrong. It then directed the APPSC to constitute an expert committee. It said that, after finalisation of the key by the expert committee, and if necessary, the selection process could be revised in accordance with the answer key arrived at by the expert committee.

As the tribunal refused to order a fresh examination as was sought by the petitioners, they moved the High Court. The High Court, while admitting the petitions, passed an interim order directing the secretary, UPSC, to constitute a committee to suggest the correct answers and submit a report within four weeks.

Aggrieved by the interim order, the APPSC moved the SC and it held that: “We are of the view that these questions cannot be retained. That being so, the marks secured have to be recounted from the answer books written by all the candidates on the basis of 144 questions after deleting these six questions and their answers.”

The SC then said those who pass the test after revaluation will be eligible for the Main examination and the APPSC will hold the main examination de novo. Later, the Supreme Court modified its earlier order when the APPSC sought a clarification with regard to participation of the candidates and their age relaxation.

The Supreme Court said: “We modify our order dated October 7, 2013 to this extent that it will be permissible for APPSC to restrict the participation in the May examination to be held now to approximately 10,000 candidates who have passed the fresh exam after excluding the above-referred 7,711 candidates. There will be age relaxation in favour of candidates who have crossed the age bar because of litigation.”

And when the petitioners before the High Court moved a case against the commission for delay and also in view of constituting a separate Public Service Commission for the state of Telangana, the SC passed an order on June 2 telling Telangana Public Service Commission to conduct the exam which should be based on syllabus as notified earlier while permitting both the states to conduct a fresh test within three months.

Increase in number of Group II posts sought in AP 11-Aug-2016
Hyderabad,Aug 11 Based on the initial report that the government was planning to fill about 750 posts in Group II services through the APPSC examination, members of Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI), Student Federation on India (SFI) and teachers, demanded that the number of posts be increased to 5,000. Addressing the aspirants at an awareness programme on the proposed new format of APPSC examination at Andhra University on Wednesday, former MLC from Guntur K.S. Laxmana Rao, said the Group II examination was not held for the last five years and there are a number of aspirants. “In such a scenario a mere 750 posts will not match the demand,” he told The Hindu , after the seminar. This apart, the representative of the student organisations demanded that the maximum age limit be enhanced to 44 years from 40, as done by the Telangana government. V.V. Srinivas of DYFI said the government should abolish the proposed screening test. As per a government’s notification, a screening test will be conducted for 150 marks covering the subjects of current affairs (50), Indian Polity (50) and Indian Economy (50), if the applications received cross the 25,000 mark. “We expect at least four to five lakh applications, as the examination is being held after a gap of five years. The screening test will deprive many of the opportunity. We demand that the government follow the old system,” he said. Supporting the demand for reverting to the old format of examination, general secretary of Forum for Development of North Andhra (FDNA) A. Aja Sarma said the government’s decision to make the examination a computer based test (CBT) would hamper the chances of many aspirants. “We also demand that the notification be released immediately and the idea of merging some part of Group II to Group I (B), be dropped,” he added. Focus areas Talking about the new format and focus areas, Mr. Laxman Rao advised the students to concentrate on AP Reorganisation Act, the problems faced by the State post bifurcation in areas such as capital construction, water and assets sharing and Schedule 9 and 10 of the Act on division and working of various institutions under the schedule. He also urged the aspirants to give attention to topics such as AP economy (pre and post bifurcation), AP history from the Satavahana time to the formation of the state, Indian economy and Indian Polity. AU Registrar V Uma Maheswara Rao inaugurated the seminar.

APPSC cleared 30 Ineligible candidates 8-Aug-2013
Hyderabad,Aug 8 Thanks to the AP Public Service Commission, at least 30 “ineligible” engineering graduates were made eligible for appointment as assistant executive engineers in various government departments in spite of the candidates lacking proper certificates.

The candidates, whom the APPSC had cleared after verifying their certificates, were rejected by the engineering departments, including that of irrigation, as ineligible. If not for the alertness of these departments, the candidates would have been absorbed into government service.

Inquiries revealed that the APPSC had notified direct recruitment for AEE posts in irrigation, panchayati raj, roads and buildings and public health departments (notification number 41/2011 and 31/2011). As there were no oral interviews, the APPSC held verification of certificates for candidates who had cleared the written test and had accordingly issued letters to the respective departments to appoint them as AEEs.

Some candidates had even submitted certificates stating that they had pursued engineering through distance education mode though the All India Council for Technical Education. The AP State Council of Higher Education had however banned distance education engineering and had informed the authorities concerned not to entertain such certificates for government service appointments.

When contacted, APPSC chairman C.R. Biswal confirmed he had received complaints against the verification process and an inquiry had been ordered into the involvement of commission staff, if any. “In several cases, the commission rejected distance education certificates. In a few cases, the candidates produced certificates issued by the JNTU and got through,” Biswal said.

No re-classification of Group-I, II posts till 2014 13-Jul-2013
Hyderabad,Jul 13 The State Government has deferred until 2014 its ‘controversial’ move to re-classify categories of posts under Group-I and Group-II services as Group-I (A), Group-I (B) and Group-II services.

For the present, exams to these posts will be conducted as per the old system, a government order issued on 12th July said. The order clarified that the decision was taken in view of representations from aspirants and also the concerns of rural students.

In December 2012, the government had issued orders merging executive posts of Group-II service into the B-category of Group-I services. The government had argued that there was a need for a tougher selection process, in accordance with the job demands of these posts.

Aspirants had opposed the decision arguing that exam for Group-II (Executive) posts could not be clubbed with Group –I exams, as the former and latter belongs two different services i.e. Group – II and Group – I services, respectively.

Another argument was that Group-I posts were of State-level cadre while Group-II posts were filled based on zonal recruitment, where reservation is applicable for a local candidate. The aspirants also sought more time before such major changes were adopted. The new system will come into effect only from 2014.

APPSC Group II, Group I merger of posts unfair said by aspirants 26-Dec-2012
Hyderabad,Dec 26 The merger of executive posts of Group-II service into Group-I service by the government recently has been criticised as candidates have had to go through the same examination process for both the senior and junior positions.

For example, aspirants for the posts of Deputy Collector and Tahsildar will write the same exam and a difference of a few marks in the exam will decide who will be the boss and who will be the subordinate. Such a work atmosphere could never be healthy and the administration will be severely affected, claims Srinu, a Group-II aspirant.

The government had recently merged executive posts of Group-II service into “B” category of Group-I services to ensure that the candidates selected for these posts go through a tougher process in accordance with the job demands of those posts.

Take exception Aspirants say the argument is ridiculous as the Group-I posts are Class-I services whereas Group-II (executive posts) are Class-II services. How can the same exam be held for two different services?

Aspirants also take exception to the government’s argument that the UPSC conducts the same exam for IAS, IPS, IFS and Group “A” and Group “B” services and a similar procedure can be adopted here.

Aspirants say that all posts filled through civil services exams and that Group “A” and Group “B” are class-I services. Similarly posts for Class-II services of the same departments are filled through the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) exams.

In the same manner, Class-II services in the State government should be filled through a separate Group-II examination and not through Group-I examinations.

Moreover, Group-I service is a State-level cadre, whereas Group-II has posts filled based on zonal-wise recruitment where the local candidate reservation is applicable. The merger will create complications in the recruitment, they say.

Another issue is the subjectivity in valuation in the descriptive pattern. The government argues that merging will help them assess the quality of candidates through the descriptive pattern examination. But the aspirants argue that the standard of Group-II examinations can be raised even in an objective pattern and cite examples such as CAT, UGC-NET and APSET that have objective questions only.

Candidates also say that degree college lecturers who evaluate the Group-I papers are not the qualified enough as they themselves are selected through an objective pattern exam. And these lecturers have little understanding of the difficulties involved in evaluating the Group-I papers which is of descriptive type.

The merger will hit rural students wanting to get into Group-II services more than the city-bred ones. With the description pattern, rural students will be unable to compete with the urban students who have access to better education and coaching facilities. Moreover, the mental calibre of the aspirants preparing for Group-I and II examinations differs, feel the candidates.

Thousands of aspirants started preparing a long time ago after incurring major financial expenditure, precious time and energy and they feel that the government should give sufficient time to cope up with the new pattern.

Aspirants say that in the year 2007 when reforms were sought for the Group-I and II exam, APPSC had sought opinions from professors, trainers and candidates before finalising the reforms.

Nearly two years of time was given to the aspirants to cope with the new pattern but now the merger has been done in a hurried manner, they feel.

Difference of a few marks in the exam to decide between allotment of senior, junior posts

APPSC Blocks Recruitment Exams Results 9-Oct-2012
Hyderabad,Oct 9 Members of the AP Public Service Commission have blocked the announcement of results of various recruitment exams as a protest against the reforms initiated by the state government abolishing interviews for all posts barring those for Group-I.

The members want the APPSC to conduct interviews for all posts as was the case earlier and to this effect, the results have been withheld even six months after they were held. As per norms, the APPSC has to obtain approvals from majority of the members to announce the results, but most of the eight members are apparently refusing to give their approvals.

Irked by this, scores of candidates agitated in front of APPSC on Monday .

They alleged some members were blocking the results as they wanted to sell the posts in the name of conducting interviews.

Lakhs of candidates are facing hardships due to this delay and have even approached the Chief Minister. However, the government has expressed its helplessness since APPSC is a “Constitutional body“ and it can't enforce any decision or initiate action against its members.
