The Supreme Court on Thursday ordered the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) to release the result of the Combined Graduate Level (CGL) exam conducted in 2017. After a considerable delay, candidates can finally expect the result soon.
There were huge protests after the papers of the CGL exams held last year were allegedly leaked. The court had directed a stay order on the SSC results for recruitment exams after the alleged leak.
The matter came up before a bench comprising Justice SA Bobde and Justice NV Ramana.
Last month, the top court had asked the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to file a detailed status report on the investigation into the case.
On 14 March, 2018, the CBI had registered a preliminary inquiry into the alleged irregularities in the test.
On 42 February, 2018, the commission had issued a notice saying that due to "technical reasons", the exams held on 21 February would be re-conducted on 9 March.
