Jharkhand PSC : New syllabus for the civil services
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,
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.
