There was no leakage of question papers of Staff Selection Commission (SSC) Examination. In view of some sporadic incidents of alleged cheating by some candidates at a few venues and subsequent agitation by a section of the candidates, the Commission in order to reiterate and reaffirm the faith of the candidates in the examination process recommended for an impartial enquiry by CBI. Accepting the recommendation of the Commission, Government has referred the matter to CBI for a free and fair enquiry on 8/3/2018.
