UPSC clears confusion over fake selection claims of two candidates
Two candidates from Madhya Pradesh and Haryana with the same name and same roll number have claimed that they have cracked the exam.
New Delhi: The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) said Friday it is considering criminal action against two candidates who claimed to crack the exam in the civil services examination, the result of which was declared on Tuesday.
The candidates, Aysha Makrani (from Madhya Pradesh) and Tushar (from Haryana), falsely claimed that they had been selected in an exam, the commission stated in an official statement. “The claims of both people are fake. They have forged the documents in their favour to buttress their claims,” the statement read.
Two such claims had been made, in which two people with the same name claimed to have passed the civil service exam with the chosen roll number. Such errors are impossible because of the UPSC’s robust and foolproof system, according to the notification.
Two such claims had been made, in which two people with the same name claimed to have passed the civil service exam on the roll number that was selected. “The system of the UPSC is robust as well as foolproof, and such errors are not possible,” the notification said.
The UPSC statement said Aysha Makarni, daughter of Salimmuddin Makrani, appeared for the preliminary examination and scored only 22.22 marks in General Studies Paper 1 and 21.09 marks in General Studies Paper 2. The commission noted that since she failed the preliminary stage itself, her claim of securing the 184th rank in the final result was false. It also clarified that Aysha Fatima, daughter of Naziruddin, is the genuine candidate.
Similarly, Tushar Kumar, son of Ashwini Kumar Singh from Bihar, is a genuine candidate and has secured AIR 44. His roll number is 1521306.
The other Tushar, son of Brijmohan from Rewari, Haryana, was allotted 2208860 as his roll number. He appeared for the preliminary examination and secured minus (-) 22.89 marks in general studies paper 1 and 44.73 marks in general studies paper 2. He scored negative marks on one paper and less than cut off on another.
The statement further read that both candidates violated the provisions of the rules governing the civil services exam; therefore, “the UPSC is contemplating both criminal as well as disciplinary penal action against both candidates for their fraudulent acts.”
