Rajasthan Constable Recruitment 2018: Internet shut down in state for 2 days
Jaipur, July 12: The Rajasthan Constable Recruitment 2018 will be held on July 14 and 15. However for the first time internet services would be blocked across the state during the duration of the exams.
The police have taken permission from the government to suspend internet services in the 5 kilometre radius of an exam centre for two hours each in every shift. The exams would be held in two shifts over two days on Saturday and Sunday. These details were made known to the Rajasthan High Court, which is hearing a plea relating to the Rajasthan Constable Recruitment 2018.
Around 15 lakh candidates for more than 13000 posts would take exams at 664 centres. The examination had to be cancelled in March when special operation group (SOG) of Rajasthan police busted gangs involved in facilitating hi-tech cheating for the candidates.
Following this, not only the exam was cancelled but it was decided that future recruitment exams would be conducted offline.
The police say that there would be CCTV cameras in every room and even police officials and hawks would not be permitted to keep mobile phones. Only the in-charge of the exam centre will have a mobile phone.
