Rajasthan govt to bring ordinance to strengthen law against recruitment test irregularities: Gehlot – Times of India

JAIPUR: The Rajasthan government will soon bring in an ordinance to strengthen the law to curb abuse in recruitment exams, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said on Sunday after state protests and arrests and alleged irregularities in REET-2021. He said the ordinance would provide for stricter measures, including seven years in jail and dismissal from government service, against those involved in fraud, paper leaks and other irregularities in competitive examinations.

He said that under the ordinance, the use of unfair means in the recruitment test would be included in the category of an anonymous and bailable offense and provision would be made to increase the jail term from three years to seven.

If any government official-employee is involved in incidents like paper leaks, sitting copying of dummy candidates, the state government will dismiss him.

Ten people, including some police constables, have been arrested for alleged irregularities in the Rajasthan aptitude test for teachers (REET-2021).

September 2 Examinations were held for more than 1,000,000 positions in the state. About 16 lakh candidates in the state registered to sit for the exam.
