SSC said, “It was observed by the Commission that the candidates were facing difficulties in producing the OBC Certificates in the prescribed format within the cut-off date specified in the notices. Some of the candidates had also challenged the above provisions in various Courts. Keeping in view the difficulties faced by the candidates, SSC has decided not to insist on OBC certificate.”

SCC has also decided to consider those candidates whose candidature were not considered by the Delhi Police during the conduct of PST/PE&MT on the grounds of not having valid OBC Certificate. Now, those candidates can request to SSC to confirm as to whether they are inclined to attend PST/PE&MT to be conducted shortly by the Delhi Police in case they have prima facie proof of being OBC, so as to process their claim under the OBC category.

The last date for updating above information is September 10, 2017 till 5.00 PM failing which their requests will not be considered by the Delhi Police and the SSC. Candidate can go to http://ssconline.nic.in/dpconstable/ to intimate the SSC.
