Arunachal Pradesh’s civil service exam questions found copied from a Pakistani website

A Pakistani website named www.cssforum.com.pk, claims to be a complete resource for Central Superior Services competitive exam, which is a gateway to enter Pakistan’s premier civil services.

Even though the website seems to be useful for Pakistan’s civil service exams, it might also start becoming invaluable for candidates appearing for Arunachal Pradesh’s civil service exams, if a Hindustan Times report is to be believed.

It has been reported that more than half of the questions asked during the recent preliminary exams of Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) were copied from this Pakistani website.

The candidates realised this after they decided to research more about these questions which were framed in Pakistan’s context.

If this wasn’t enough, a part of the remaining questions were plagiarised from 2008’s Union Public Service Commission exams. The paper setters though failed to methodically carry out their copy paste as these UPSC questions didn’t have proper options to choose from.

The so called ‘laziness’ didn’t stop here and, candidates claimed that 90% of the questions in the sociology paper were lifted from an online discussion forum. Plus 60% of veterinary exam questions were obtained via a similar process.

Apart from the questions, the question paper too was of a poor quality. Most of the papers were photocopied and some were also tampered with, which might suggest the possibility of a leak.

As a result of this fiasco, a steering was committee formed to demand a re-examination. One of its members named Nani Bath has claimed that the committee has set a deadline, asking APPSC to conduct a retest within 3 months.

A social activist named Patey Tayum has also demanded that the APPSC chairperson Tajom Taloh should quit by taking moral responsibility.

Recently we had reported how Assam’s civil services too were embroiled in a serious controversy.

11 Assam officials were arrested in connection with a job-for-cash scam this November, which was perpetrated during the erstwhile Congress regime. Of the 11 arrested, 7 belong to the Assam Civil Services (ACS) and 4 belong to the Assam Police Service (APS).
