3.8 lakh candidates, 1,019 centres: Telangana readies for TSPSC group-I prelims

Hyderabad: Chief secretary Somesh Kumar along with TSPSC chairman Dr. B. Janardhan Reddy and DGP Mahender Reddy held a teleconference with district collectors, commissioners of police, and SPs and took stock of the arrangements being made for the group-I preliminary examination scheduled to be held on 16 October.

With more than 3.8 lakh candidates appearing for the prelims at 1,019 centres across the state, the chief secretary asked the collectors to make elaborate arrangements for the smooth conduct of the exam.

"Strong rooms should be identified and adequate police protection should be arranged in coordination with the police department. Collectors should conduct a meeting with all the line departments and ensure that all arrangements like drinking water, sanitation, etc., are made at the examination centers. Strong room in charges, route officers, liaison officers, assistant liaison officers, and chief superintendents should be asked to ensure that they adhere to the instructions as per the checklist given by TSPSC," the chief secretary said.

A special control room will also be set up in the office of the TSPSC. Hall tickets for the preliminary test (objective type), scheduled to be held on 16 October, from 10.30 a.m to 1.00 p.m, in all district centres, are hosted on the commission's website.

The chief secretary directed the collectors to hold a press conference to sensitise the candidates about the biometric features introduced for the first time for the exams. The candidates should also be told to download the hall tickets and reach the examination centre much before the scheduled time so as to avoid last-minute delays, he said.
