HPAS (2013) – Prelim Exam Date Postponed to 15 June 2014
Public Service Commission
Himachal Pradesh Public Service Commission had earlier fixed HPAS Preliminary Examination (Date) for 11th May, 2014. All arrangements for the conduct of examination have been completed by the Commission. However recently the Commission has been receiving representations from the staff deployed on election duty, requesting for postponement of examination on the plea that in view of their deployment, they will not be able to prepare/appear in the examination.
The Commission in a special meeting held under the chairmanship of Sh. K.S. Tomar, Chairman, H.P. Public Service Commission considered the representations received from various quarters. The Commission appreciated that the HPAS examination is the most prestigious examination in the State and a large number of aspirants from all sections of the society appear in the examination. The Commission felt that in view of its high outreach, it is necessary to ensure that equal opportunity is provided and nobody is deprived of the opportunity to appear in the exam, more so when one is deployed for the most onerous duty of conduct of elections in the State. Therefore the Commission decided to postpone the examination. It was decided that the examination will now be held on 15th June, 2014.
