After much speculation, the Haryana Public Service Commission has indefinitely postponed main examination for the Haryana Civil Service (Executive branch) and other allied services which was scheduled to be held from June 5 to 15.
While the notice cited administrative reasons for postponing the exam, it is learnt that the snags in bilingual printing of question papers was leading to delay. The Commission’s notice said that new date, time and venue of the main exam will be announced later on.
However, the decision to postpone the exam indefinitely has come as a surprise for candidates preparing for them. “Many candidates have enrolled themselves in coaching classes while there are several who are employed and are on earned leave preparing for the exams. The decision is a setback for them,’’ said an aspirant.
Sources said the main exam for the HCS (Judicial) will be held in July and it is expected that the main exam for HCS (Executive Branch) and other allied services exam will be held thereafter.
