Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) is mulling to put
online the scanned copies of answer sheets of the candidates
Conceding to the longstanding demand of civil service
aspirants, the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) is mulling to put online
the scanned copies of answer sheets of the candidates writing the prestigious
examination. The Commission, which conducts the annual examination to select
candidates for IAS, IPS and IFS among others, is in discussion with the Ministry
of Personnel over the matter.
"The UPSC is considering to upload answer sheets of
candidates on its website. The matter is at the consultation stage," a Ministry
official said. The Commission, at present, does not put online scanned copies of
Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) answer sheets of the candidates.
However, it has been providing the answer sheets from the
year 2012 onwards on specific demands, after the entire examination process gets
over. Official said the Commission will first start with uploading scanned
answer sheets of civil services preliminary examination and then will go for
uploading mains exam answer copies.
