More than six lakh candidates registered to take the aggressive 67 mixed (initial) test conducted by Bihar Public Service Charges (BPSC) at 1,088 in-state test centers on Sunday, the officers said.
In Patna alone, a total of 55,710 candidates will appear within the examination at 83 centres, which will likely be held in one shift from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM.
Reflecting on the huge diversity of examinees, the Patna District Administration has made detailed preparations to conduct the examination in a good and peaceful manner within the district.
Sharing details, Peace District Judge Chandra Shekhar Singh has stated that 107 static quads of judges have been deployed along with sufficient police force to conduct the examination peacefully. He stated that the orders prohibiting the gathering of individuals will remain imposed in any area of the examination centers throughout the examination period to prevent unscrupulous measures.
He said, “Candidates will likely be allowed to enter the exam corridor an hour before they graduate from the exam. No candidate will be allowed to enter if they arrive late at the exam center.” Candidates are strictly prohibited from carrying digital devices such as calculator, mobile, bluetooth, WiFi devices, digital pens, digital watches, sensible watches, pagers and bleachers. In addition, no observer and staff will carry cell phones, besides the director of the center. Participating observers will ensure honest inspection of their examination halls. .
Vikash Kumar, Candidate from Patna stated, “I have assigned an examination center in Saran district about 100 km from my residence. It is very inconvenient to go such a long distance on the exam day due to the large number of Street and public transport examinees. A special Ni preparation link has been made for BPSC aspirants, preferably a railway examination. I will go to the examination center during the early hours of Sunday to get it done on time.”
BPSC Examination No. 67 is conducted to fill 802 vacant seats in several departments of the authorities.
