Panchayat Junior Clerk recruitment paper leaked in Gujarat

Debjit Mukherjee: The Gujarat government on Sunday cancelled the competitive examination for the Panchayat Junior Clerk recruitment, hours before it was scheduled to be held after its question paper was leaked, officials said. They also said that this is for the third time the exam to recruit junior clerks was cancelled owing to an exam paper leak or compromised recruitment process.


Amid the leak, the Gujarat ATS arrested 15 people in this connection. The Panchayat Department Development Commissioner Sandeep Kumar on Sunday said that the examination will now be held within the next 100 days. Meanwhile, the Congress and AAP hit out at BJP for the paper leak.
