This year the MPPSC exam was supposed to be held on 11 April, but in view of the increasing cases of Corona, now the exam will be on 20 June.
Due to the increasing cases of Corona (Covid-19), now once again the government has to extend the date of Madhya Pradesh Public Service Commission (MPPSC) State Service Preliminary Examination 2020 this year. This year the MPPSC exam was supposed to be held on 11 April, but in view of the increasing cases of Corona, now the exam will be on 20 June. Regarding extending the exam date, the examination controller says that the corona cases are constantly increasing. Because of this, this decision has had to be taken.
Let us know that more than two thousand corona cases have been found daily in the past days in the state. The speed of getting corona cases is much higher in the big cities like Indore and Bhopal than in the whole state.
The SMS process for the students who took the exam was to begin today
Where and in which city the exam will be, messages are sent 10 days in advance. The commission was preparing that from today, all the candidates will be given information about the exam location through SMS, but before that the government has tightened the lockdown. Not only this, the government has also increased the stricter for people coming from Maharashtra with nearby states. In view of the difficulties faced in this situation, it was decided to pursue the examination on 11 April.
3 lakh candidates were to be included this time
3 lakh 44 thousand candidates were going to appear in the MPPSC exam to be held on April 11. The Commission had done almost all the preparations for this. 99 examination centers were set up in Indore for the examination. About 39 thousand candidates were going to take the exam here.
Candidates were demanding that the exam be canceled
In view of Corona’s increasing infection, the demand for cancellation of the exam was already arising. On March 22, the candidates had submitted a memorandum to the PSC management and the Chief Minister, seeking to pursue the exam. However, the PSC had also talked to the government about the exam and said that it would be very difficult to carry out such a big exam between the growing transition of Corona and the growing restrictions. Let us know that the exam is to be done for 260 posts.
