HYDERABAD:Following a number of candidates failing to be selected for police constable posts, candidates on Monday squatted down in front of DGP office.

Meanwhile, the Telangana State Level Police Recruitment Board (TSLPRB) chairman J Purnachandra Rao denied allegations of any irregularities taking place in the recruitment of police constable posts.
As the non-selected candidates have doubts on selection process, the chairman allowed candidates to submit a challenging representation on their issues to the board from February 24. He also stated that cut off marks will be put on the official portal of the board from Monday night.
Cut off rank of one district cannot be used as the cut off rank of another district or battalion or post. Each district, social category (BC/SC/ST/ABO-ST) and also special Category (NCC, MSP, CPP, CDI, HG) and women will have different cut offs. “Candidates, who are willing to submit representations about any discrepancy in the selection may submit them online from February 24. The details regarding process of challenge option will be put in the board’s website —,” Rao said.

Officials noticed that wrong information was being circulated regarding selection of Aboriginal Tribe (ABO-ST) candidate Soyam Srikanth of Adilabad Reg. no. 104971. “His rank was poor to get TSSP, which is his first preference. There are no posts under ABO-ST in TSSP. But there are posts under ABO-ST in PC Civil. Hence, he has been selected under ABO-ST & not ST. It is the first time that government gave relaxation of physical measurements making them eligible on par with plain area tribals and hence, the selection. His selection for third preference Civil is correct,” the chairman explained.
He further stated that ranks of Civil, AR and TSSP are different. Civil rank is based on final written examination marks (FWE). TSSP rank is based on FWE, Physical efficiency test  and AR rank is based on Driving Licence marks, FWE, Physical Efficiency Test.
