KPSC releases final list of candidates for 464 posts

The Karnataka Public Service Commission on Saturday published a list of candidates selected for 464 gazetted probationary posts. The results, which were announced just eight days after the interviews, brought relief to candidates after a delay had led to anxiety.

The government had invited applications for the posts on January 22, 2015. As many as 7,884 candidates cleared the preliminary exam held on April 19. The mains were held from September 18 to 22 and the results were out on April 29, 2016. In keeping with the 1:3 ratio, where three applicants are called for one post, 1,389 candidates were selected for interview.

However, the process had come to a standstill due to confusion over the ratio, the appointment of KPSC chairman as well as a change in interview rules. The momentum was back in 2017 with the KPSC holding interviews from February 20 to April 12 and announcing the selection in eight days.

The results can be accessed at http://kp­sc.ka­r.nic­.in. Candidates can submit their objections, if any, to the chief secretary within 30 days. Meahwhile, the row over the irregularities in the recruitment of 362 gazetted probationaries in 2011 has now reached the high court. Many names in 2011 list can also be found on the 2014 list.

1:3 ratio from now
The state government has decided to go with 1:3 ratio for interviews, reducing two candidates in the final part of the recruitment process. The government will soon pass an order in this regard. The government is also expected to call applications for 402 posts around the same time.
