The Rajasthan Public Service Commission (RPSC) today guaranteed that it had taken to online examinations in a big way, with 140 tests conducted for various posts in the last two years, the highest in the nation. The commission was the first in the nation to begin the ‘on-screen marking’ process to examine answer sheets, RPSC chairman Dr Lalit K Panwar said here.
“The RPSC has conducted 140 online examinations for different posts in the last two years. No other state service commission has conducted such a large number of tests online,” he said.
Since August 15, 2015, 43,824 hopefuls have been chosen for different posts of which 61,300 officers have been promoted through 864 Departmental Promotion Committee meetings, Panwar said.
Chairmen and members of other state commissions, including Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Manipur, Himachal Pradesh and Tripura, have visited Rajasthan to understand the working of the ‘on-screen marking’ process, he said.
Panwar said that the commission will begin ‘one time registration’ and ‘one time verification of documents’ soon.
The RPSC is conducting examinations and interviews on the UPSC pattern, he said.
