Hyderabad: Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL) on Monday said arrangements had been made for the staff nurse recruitment examination to be conducted on August 29.
SCCL Director (Personal and Finance) N Balram said 13,379 applications were received online of which 2,246 are rejected. For the first time, 718 men are also appearing for the exam which will be conducted in 18 centres at Kothagudem and Palvancha. “We are conducting the exam transparently. Right from preparing the exam paper to dispatching them to centres, everything is done confidentially,” Balram said.
Balram said a constant vigil is being maintained on the employees involved in examination related works. They were placed in a secret location where no communication facility is available, and they would be sent out only after the exam is completed.
According to the official, questions were also selected randomly through a computer program and nobody knows which questions would appear in the exam. The preparation of the exam paper and printing is done only a few hours before the exam.
During the examination, the SCCL Directors and General Managers would regularly inspect the centres, and stern action would be taken against those duping candidates in the name of Singareni.
The SCCL management made it clear that candidates bringing electronic gadgets or banned items would be debarred and would not be allowed to participate in any exam conducted by Singareni in future. Besides, cases would also be filed against them.
Since many women are appearing for the exam, more women staff would be deployed for inspections, Balram added.
