Arunachal: Candidates Alleges Anomalies in APSSB-conducted Physical Test


The disqualified and agitated candidates that had appeared for the Physical Efficiency Test (PET) for foresters and forest guard which was conducted on 25 March by the Arunachal Pradesh Staff Selection Board (APSSB) staged a peaceful protest on Wednesday. They alleged that there were anomalies during the PET of foresters and claimed that they had finished the qualifying round which was the “pass requirement time” for qualification.

A disqualified applicant claimed that the candidates who completed after 7 PM were not recorded, resulting in disqualification. The candidates blamed the supervising team for the alleged negligence and further claimed that they were neither given confirmation token of seven-round lap competition nor were they given verification through monitor, unlike the first batch of candidates.

“The verification counter was closed before the completion of our last lap. The last team of candidates started their first lap around 4.55 PM according to which the verifying counter should have been available till 9 PM,” the candidates said in their representation submitted to the APSSB secretary.

However, APSSB Secretary Santosh Kumar Rai confirmed that the board has received the complaint from the candidates and assured that the board would look into the matter.
