Results after Supreme Court decision
The Supreme Court on Thursday paved the way for the declaration of the long-awaited results by vacating its stay on it. Besides, the top court's bench headed by Justice S A Bobde has also constituted a 7-member committee to be headed by retired apex court judge Justice G S Singhvi.
The panel will suggest measures to make entrance exams for jobs and admissions in educational institutions foolproof. The seven-member committee will submit its report before the apex court within three months.
The results of SSC CGL and Higher Secondary level examinations were stayed by the Supreme Court on August 31, 2018. The apex court had then said that the entire test and the system were "tainted". The SSC exams in 2017 were marred by allegations of paper leak.
The apex court has also made it clear that the declaration of the results of the examination would be subject to the final outcome of the case, news agency PTI reported.
Apart from Justice Singhvi, the seven-member committee includes Infosys co-founder Nandan Nilekani, computer scientist Vijay Bhatkar, mathematician R L Karandikar, Sanjay Bhardwaj and a representative each from the Central government and CBI.
Among several issues, the panel will also assess whether it is possible to conclude that the entire examination process could have been tainted by leakage and if yes, then how the beneficiaries would be identified, news agency PTI reported.
SSC conducts examinations to recruit staff at multiple levels in various ministries and departments.
Earlier, the apex court had favoured cancelling the 2017 SSC examination and holding it afresh by National Testing Agency or the CBSE "in the interest of students".
Lakhs of students appear in SSC examination each year and enter government services in Group C and D Categories of jobs after qualifying.
There is a four-tier system in SSC Combined Graduate Level: Tier I and Tier II are computer-based; Tier III and IV have descriptive papers and computer proficiency or skill tests.
