Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board (JKSSB) on Sunday disqualified some candidates who were using unfair means in the examination centers.

JKSSB successfully conducted OMR based objective type written examination for the post of Accounts Assistant (Finance) in the 722 examination centres set up by the Board across 19 districts of the Union Territory.

The officers and officials deployed in JKSSB Command Control Room, while exercising vigil over conduct of examination, detected some candidates using unfair means. CCTV surveillance proved to be useful tool to detect use of unfair means in the examination centre.

The Board intends to expand the usage of CCTV surveillance to ensure 100% live streaming in days to come. Besides, the Board has also found one invigilator indulging in undesirable practice through CCTV surveillance and recommended strict action against him.

Section 27(a) of the Jammu & Kashmir Services Selection Board (Conduct of Examination) Regulations, 2013, lays down that “the candidate found to be in possession of communication device, electronic equipment/ gadget or any other material with the intention of receiving assistance shall be declared to be using unfair means in the examination”.

Accordingly, the Services Selection Board in order to maintain transparency and fairness in the examination decided to disqualify the said candidates debarring them for 3 years from participating in the examinations conducted by the Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board. Moreover, the Board is also contemplating to recommend initiation of strict disciplinary action against the said invigilator to the competent authority.
