The Tamil Nadu Public Services Commission (TNPSC) has decided to print the nearest landmark and contact number of the examination centre on every hall ticket that would be issued for written examinations for recruitment to 5,566 posts under Group IV. This move is aimed at ensuring that candidates don’t lose time searching for their centres on the day of the exam.
The hall tickets were released online on www.tnpsc.gov.in and www.tnpscexams.net for the examinations that are scheduled for the forenoon of August 25.
TNPSC chairman A Navaneethakrishnan said all proceedings in the examination halls would be videographed to discourage students from malpractice. “About 4,500 cameras are to be set up.
We have also asked district administration officials to identify sensitive examination centres. Web-casting will be set-up from these centres and it can be viewed by respective officials as well as from the control room set up at the TNPSC headquarters,” he said. TNPSC will have 4,755 principal supervisors, 70,230 supervisors, 4,500 field officers and 950 flying squad officers to monitor the exams.
Candidates appearing for the examination have been instructed not to bring any electronic device, including mobile phones, into the examination halls. Defaulters would be expelled from the examination.
Candidates who could not download their hall tickets even though all application procedure had been followed have been requested to send in their details with name, registration id, application and examination fee particulars, branch and postal address.
In all, the TNPSC received 17,06,552 applications, of which 3,01,441 were rejected due to multiple entries and failure to remit exam and application fees. As many as 458 others too were rejected due to various reasons.
