JPSC prelims results 2021: Commission issues statement, cut-off amid protests


The Jharkhand Civil Service Commission (JPSC) issued an official statement on November 27 regarding the 7th result of the combined preliminary civil service competition. The statement was released amid protests and opposition from students citing various anomalies and discrepancies in the results. A total of 3,69,327 applications were registered for the 7th JPSC Preliminary Review held on September 19.

The students walked out in protest after the exam results were announced on November 1. Among the many reasons given by students, some of the most important are problems in answer keys, allegations against exam centers where all the candidates sitting in one room have qualified, non-disclosure of cut marks.

On November 23, the police charged the protesting students, which was condemned by Minister of State for Education Annapurna Devi. She had called on the state government to take action against the officials responsible for the lathi charge.

A delegation of about 15 people led by BJP MPs Naveen Jaiswal and Bhanu Pratap Sahi, and AJSU MP Lambodar Mahto met with the President and Secretary of JPSC. The Commission clarified 20 different points, which it said were raised by the Delegation on three different occasions in three separate petitions.

He also released the cutoff ratings by category, although he intended to release the same after the final results were released.

For the unqualified category, the cut-off score is 260, for ST, it is 230, for SC and EWS, it is 238. The cut-off score for the EBC and BC categories is 252. For candidates, the cutoff ratings, by category, is the same.

“The Commission was determined to process the assessment and review of the answer sheets without undue delay and went to extraordinary lengths to publish the results after a record interval of just 41 days. Significantly, this short interval included a number of public holidays for Navratra, ”JPSC said.
