The Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) is yet to have subject experts check the alleged irregularities in the question papers of the commission’s Combined Competitive Examinations (APPSCCE) 2017-18, prompting the judge not to give a decision in the matter.

Representing the candidates, advocate Abhist Hela informed that the judge could not give a decision as subject experts had not been brought in to check the alleged anomalies in the 22 question papers of the APPSCCE.

Advocate General Niloy Dutta will be representing the state government at the hearing scheduled for Thursday at the Itanagar bench of the Gauhati High Court here.

On 14 November 2018, the court here had directed the vice-chancellor (VC) of Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU) to constitute an expert committee to analyze the matter and submit a report within 45 days.

In turn, the RGU had placed an interlocutory application in the court to direct the state government to bear the expenses that would be incurred in constituting the expert committee to look into the alleged irregularities.

The RGU had noted that it would require 70 subject experts for the 22 different subjects of the APPSCCE (prelims), saying the experts would have to be requisitioned from various universities in India, for which the applicant (RGU) would have to bear the expenses involved in accommodation, travel, and honorarium, among other things.
