PPSC conducts all Exams in English only except PCS Combined Competitive Examinations, clarifies Chairman

Chandigarh, May 24, 2022 (Yes Punjab News)
Taking cognizance of the media reports regarding examination conducted by PPSC for recruitment to 78 posts of Naib-Tehsildar in English only, the Chairman Punjab Public Service Commission Jagbans Singh on Tuesday clarified that the rules of procedure prescribed by the PPSC for its functioning clearly stipulate that the question paper be set in English language only and all such examinations in the past too have been conducted in English only.

Pointing out further, PPSC Chairman said that the only exception to the aforesaid rule is the Punjab State Civil Services Combined Competitive Examination – both preliminary and main – where it is mandated by the Government notified rules to conduct the examination in both English and Punjabi.

Referring to the issue raised by media regarding the examination of Naib Tehsildars recently conducted by PPSC, the Chairman averred that the question paper, which consisted of multiple choice questions requiring the candidates only to select the correct option out of the four given options, was set in the English language.

However, the minimum eligible qualification for the post of Naib Tehsildar is graduation and a graduate in any stream is expected to have a basic knowledge of English that enables him/her to choose correct options in multiple-choice questions. Therefore, no written expression of language is required to answer the questions in such examinations, added the Chairman PPSC.
