The Staff Selection Commission for instance recruits staff who take the position at various government organisations and central departments. This is also a recruitment step for future subordinate officials. Thus, cases of cheating and individuals involved in it may take such important positions for the entire nation, instead of eligible aspirants.

The SSC case Investigation and Outrage

Approximately 200,000 hopeful aspirants had taken the SSC CGL Tier II exam. The exam was cancelled after answer chits were found in a toilet at one of the exam centres in Delhi and a case was reported against mass cheating and malpractice. At another SSC exam centre, in Bhopal, several candidates reported question papers were pre-marked with answers, leading to the cancellation of the exam. Aspirants have since been holding protests in front of the SSC office, in New Delhi, demanding a CBI investigation.

The demands have been accepted and Staff Selection Commission and the Indian government have given a green signal to the CBI probe.
