In a landmark judgement, the Itanagar Permanent Bench of Gauhati High Court has invalidated the results of the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Combined Competitive (Preliminary) Examination, APPSCCE (Prelims), 2017 conducted by the APPSC on July 29, 2018.

Disposing of a series of writ petitions filed by aggrieved candidates, the Court directed the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) to conduct a fresh preliminary examination within a period of two months by strictly following the rules and guidelines.

“The Prelims conducted on 29.07.2018, the results declared on 02.08.2018 and 16.08.2018 are hereby set aside. In view thereof, the Mains conducted on 10.11.2018 also do not survive and stands set aside,” reads the judgment given by HC judge, Justice Nelson Sailo.

Further, the HC in its ruling directed that “the Commission shall now conduct fresh preliminary examination by strictly following the rules, guidelines, syllabus etc within a period of eight weeks from today.

The Commission shall allow all the candidates who were earlier given admit cards to appear for the Prelims to be conducted. Admit card already issued may be used by the candidates for participating in the Prelims and if the same is no longer retained by the candidate, the Commission shall issue a fresh one on request.”

“In view of the above conclusion and direction, WP(C) Nos. 636(AP)/2018 and 604(AP)/2018 are rendered infructuous and are disposed of accordingly,” the court added.

It requires a mention here that WP(C) Nos. 475 and 486 of 2018 were filed by the petitioners alleging various anomalies and irregularities committed in the APPSCCE (Prelims) 2017 with the first one covering alleged anomalies in various subjects and the second one being in respect of Commerce subject only.

On the other hand, WP(C) Nos. 636 and 604 of 2018 were filed by the candidates, who were successful in the Prelims but were prevented from appearing the Mains due to the prevailing situation at the relevant time.
