Assam Public Service Commission Cracks Down on Corruption: 2013 ACS Batch in Hot Water
Unprecedented Action Against 2013 Batch ACS Officers in Assam.
ASSAM, 10 November 2023: In a significant move, 34 officers from the 2013 batch of the Assam Civil Service (ACS) are facing departmental proceedings for their alleged involvement in paying money to qualify for the combined civil services examinations conducted by the Assam Public Service Commission (APSC). This development comes as part of a comprehensive effort to uphold integrity within the state's administrative services.

The Assam Public Service Commission (APSC) has taken a stern stance against corruption within its examination processes. The 34 officers are under scrutiny for their alleged involvement in financial transactions aimed at securing favorable results in the civil services examinations.

This initiative is in line with Assam's commitment to ensuring transparency and fairness in the selection process for administrative positions. The departmental proceedings underscore the government's dedication to maintaining the highest standards of integrity within its civil service.

The 2013 batch of ACS officers now faces the repercussions of their alleged actions, with the departmental proceedings serving as a cautionary tale for those who might consider compromising the sanctity of the examination system. The move is also likely to bolster public trust in the integrity of the civil services recruitment process.

As Assam takes a decisive step towards weeding out corruption in its administrative services, the departmental proceedings against the 34 officers signal a commitment to a fair and merit-based system. This proactive approach is expected to have a positive impact on the future recruitment processes, ensuring that candidates are selected based on their qualifications and abilities rather than any undue influence.

The initiation of departmental proceedings against the 2013 batch of ACS officers reflects a robust commitment by the Assam government to maintain the credibility and fairness of its civil services examinations. This action sends a clear message that corruption will not be tolerated, contributing to the establishment of a transparent and accountable administrative system in the state.
