Pune, 16th October 2021: Candidates appearing for the written examination of group ‘C’ of the health recruitment examination (Aarogya Bharti) that will be conducted on 24th October are facing confusion and puzzlement regarding their examination centres. 

Some of the candidates have been allotted two exam centres in different districts for two different posts on the same day and two shifts. This has made it impossible for candidates to appear for the exam papers they have applied for.

Earlier, Health Minister Rajesh Tope had postponed the written examination of health recruitment exam a month ago due to confusion in the admission card, non-existent examination centre and mismanaged administration. After the new date for the examination was announced, the authorities responsible have been criticized by retired administrative officials as the exam centres have been marred by confusion yet again.

Candidates have also complained that not only did they get the opportunity to appear for the exams, but the exam fee money has also been wasted.

Many Candidates were not given the exam centres as per their preference and in this way, students have argued that the health department has put undue financial stress on transportation costs to the students especially from the rural regions by not giving them a centre in their district.

Mismanagement of the health department and the private portal

“The health department’s examination has again shown mismanagement. If private companies and their portals are not able to conduct examinations properly, then why insist on giving them? How much is the loss of students due to the wrong policy? I do not understand why the exam is not conducted through MPSC”, said Kalamkar Shete, Vice President, Yuva Kranti Dal, Maharashtra.
