SSC reopens application for Physical Test

After witnessing the challenges faced by the candidates regarding the submission of OBC certificates for Delhi Police Constable Recruitment, it has been decided that the Physical Test will be conducted once again. The Physical Test, proposed to be conducted by the Delhi Police shortly, will be conducted for only OBC candidates who were not considered earlier. The physical tests have been conducted by Delhi Police department to fill Constable posts.

Staff Selection Commission (SSC) had released the official notification for Delhi Police Constable recruitment in 2016. According to the norms stated by the Commission, in order to appear for the exam, OBC candidates were asked to submit the OBC certificates in the prescribed format, issued between 11.10.2013 and 08.04.2017. The commission had refrained to consider anyone, who failed to submit the Certificate according to the provision of the Notice of the Examination, during the test of PST/PE and MT conducted earlier this year.

SSC has put up a notice on the official portal, stating that the candidates who were sidelined for the physical test due to non-submission of OBC certificates within the cut off dates between 11.10.2013 and 8.02.017, can submit a prima facie proof of being OBC in order to attend PST/PE and MT, which will be conducted once more.

Numerous candidates faced a tough time in producing the OBC Certificate within the cut-off date as mentioned in the notice. Some of them even knocked the doors of court to challenge these provisions. Seeing the plight of the candidates, the commission has now decided to accept such candidates which were not considered earlier during the physical test for the recruitment of Constable in Delhi Police-2016, given the candidates need to show a prima facie proof of being OBC. The candidature of OBC Candidates will remain provisional in nature and the same will be verified by the User Department in the meantime.

SSC has asked such candidates to once again apply through the official website and update their details. A list of such candidates has been made available on the websites of Delhi Police and SSC. The application portal will remain open till 10th September (5 pm), up to which the candidates are required to update the information. SSC will not consider any further request from the candidates once the portal closes.
