Jharkhand PSC : New syllabus for the civil services examinations JPSC-2016

The State Cabinet on Wednesday approved new syllabus for the civil services examinations being conducted by JPSC and also for SSC exams. It also gave nod to the CM Dashboard Project for monitoring of all developmental programmes being conducted in the State.

These were among the 19 proposals cleared by the State Cabinet.

“Removing C-SAT from sixth JPSC Civil Services Examination, name of the subject of second paper of preliminary examination has been changed to General Studies. Besides, the cap on the number of attempts made by an aspirant has also been removed on the lines of the examination pattern adopted by other adjoining states,” said Personnel Secretary Nidhi Khare. “Now cut off marks, mandatory for declaring a candidate eligible for appearing in the Interview, will also not be mandatory,” she said.

The Cabinet also gave its approval to the recommendations made in this regard by the committee formed under Parliamentary Affairs Minister Saryu Roy.

“Number of candidates appearing in the Main Examination will be 15 times the total number of vacancies,” added Khare. 40 per cent of the total questions in the third paper, Social Science, will be Jharkhand specific, she said.

In a bid to promote transparency in the examination, a system will be developed in future to make copies of OMR sheets available to the examinees and an arrangement will also be made so that no application or answer sheet of any examinee gets rejected on technical grounds, said Khare.

According to Khare, the test conducted by JPSC for Civil Services Examination will now be known by the year in which it is conducted in spite of serial numbers. For example 6th JPSC will be known as JPSC-2016.
