The Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) and Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) have agreed to split the list of candidates who appeared in the 2011 Group I exams and conduct separate re tests individually for candidates hailing from their own states.
The Supreme Court had ordered a retest for the candidates who had appeared for the APPSC Group I exam in 2011 after students had pointed out several errors in the question paper.
APPSC had been directed to conduct the retest. But controversy had erupted after the APPSC decided to conduct the re-exam by itself in both AP and TS, upsetting its TS counterpart.
TSPSC officials had also said then that the APPSC was unwilling to share the list of candidates to determine their nativity and split them. TSPSC reasoned that the APPSC no longer had jurisdiction in TS and hence could not legally conduct the retest.
TSPSC sources have now informed that an amicable solution has been reached to end the tussle. The APPSC has agreed to share the list of candidates with the Telangana State Public Service Commission and both bodies will conduct the re-test in their own states.
“It has been resolved now. There is no issue at all. They (APPSC) shared the list of candidates and we will conduct the exam for the students of Telangana,” a TSPSC sources said.
