Jharkhand SSC’s Delay in Conducting CGL Exam Raises Concerns
The question of when the Jharkhand Staff Selection Commission (JSSC) will conduct the Combined Graduate Level Examination (CGL) has become a significant concern. The reason behind this concern is the eight-year wait for this combined examination. During these eight years, applications have been accepted four times. After receiving applications for the fourth time for the exam, a tentative date has finally been announced by the Jharkhand Staff Selection Commission (JSSC) – it is scheduled for December 16th and 17th. However, the commission has not provided information regarding when the admit cards for this examination will be released. Candidates are advised to regularly check the commission’s website for updates.
Applications for the Combined Graduate Level Examination (CGL) have been accepted since 2015. The first advertisement was released in 2015, followed by applications being accepted in 2019. In 2021, applications were accepted again, but the exam was not conducted. The fourth time, in 2023, applications have been invited for the examination. It has been over a month since online applications were invited, yet the Jharkhand Staff Selection Commission (JSSC) has only released a tentative exam date, leaving candidates uncertain about the exact date of the examination.

The Jharkhand Staff Selection Commission (JSSC) has not only delayed the process of conducting the examination but has also canceled the appointment process for certain positions. This issue is currently under review in the Jharkhand High Court. The commission has canceled the Special Branch Reserve Competition Exam for 1012 posts, Production Soldier Competitive Exam for 518 posts, Vehicle Driver Appointment Exam for 84 posts, and ANM Appointment Exam for 1985 posts.
The Jharkhand Staff Selection Commission (JSSC) faces criticism and legal challenges due to the prolonged delay and cancellations in various recruitment processes, leaving applicants in limbo.
