This is with reference to the letter “don’t increase post”
published in the readers’ forum of your esteemed daily. If the information of the number of A.E civil posts having been increased to 45 as against the original advertised 34 posts for the current recruitment just before the viva-voce is true, it would be gross injustice to the unemployed engineers and unprecedented in the history of the APPSC.
Any such move could be construed as politically motivated because it would violate the laid down norm of 1:3 ratio for interview (the number of candidates selected for interview is only for 34 posts and not 45) and give undue advantage to certain written qualified candidates.
So, I would like to appeal the APPSC not to create any controversy and keep any additional vacant posts received after the written result was declared for fresh recruitment as per the new annual exam calendar of the commission.
An unemployed engineer
It has been learned from reliable sources that the post of AE (civil) is being increased to 45. Through your daily, I would like to appeal the APPSC chairman and other concern authorities of the commission to increase the number of candidates for viva – voce accordingly in 1:3 ratio if vacancies for the said post is to be increased. Hope the new chairman and members would keep up the sanctity of the commission
