The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) has cancelled the Multi Tasking Staff (Non-Technical) recruitment examination 2017.

In a notification issued on its official website on Tuesday, the commission said that the MTS (Non-Technical) examination, 2016 in the OMR based mode is being cancelled. The commission had fixed five days for conducting the examination: April 30, May 14, May 28, June 4 and June 11, 2017. The commission had already conducted the examination on April 30 and May 14. However, exams for all the five days have been cancelled by the commission.

The commission further said that the entire examination would now be conducted by the commission afresh in computer based mode, tentatively during the month of September-October, 2017. The commission will upload the details about the fresh examination in due course.

Earlier, the commission had ordered re-examination of April 30 test for select candidates due to paper leak.

A government release said that decision was being taken to cancel the Paper-I (afternoon shift) of the MTS (Non-Technical) Examination, 2016 held on April 30, 2017, because the said paper was found to be compromised. The re-examination for only those candidates who appeared in this shift will be held in due course and they would be suitably informed accordingly, it said.

According to reports, more than 6 million candidates have applied for 8,300 Multi-Tasking (Non-Technical) Staff (MTS) posts in the country advertised by the SSC. The examination is held to select junior staff in central government departments.
