Why Re-Examination?

On 19 June at the Government Intermediate College (GIC), Allahabad centre, the Essay question paper of second shift was distributed in the first shift during the UPPSC PCS 2017 Main exam. This resulted in the cancellation of the exam and GIC was debarred as an examination centre. Several other centres were finalised in its place. An FIR was also filed against the supervisor (UPPSC), centre superintendent, supervisor, static magistrate and the printing press. A two-member panel was also constituted to probe into the matter.
