Confirming the news, Rahul Bhatnagar said, "UPPSC has been directed to hold the interviews as well as declaration of results till the next order," adding, "The government committed to bringing transparency in the appointment process, and appropriate action will be taken on all complaints of irregularities."
According to the sources in the ministry, the subordinate selection services commission, formed during the erstwhile Samajwadi Party (SP) government, may soon be dissolved as the ministry is receiving several complaints of wrong doings in recruitment of Group C and Group D vacancies.
