Kohima, June 12: Altogether 13,942 candidates will be appearing for various civil and allied services Preliminary Examinations to be conducted by the Nagaland Public Services Commission (NPSC) scheduled for June 14.
NPSC Chairman K Puroh told reporters that the candidates would be vying to fill up 71 posts including Extra Assistant Commissioners (EAC), Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Secretariat Assistants and others.
Clarifying on a query about less number of vacancies in the government departments, Puroh lamented all government departments in the state were not requisitioning for filling up of posts through the NPSC.
He said for the first time, a new system has been introduced whereby candidates will be given carbon copy of Optical Mark Reader (OMR).
"This has been done to maintain transparency and also to let candidates have confidence on the Commission," he said.
Another new system introduced by the Commission was 100 per cent online filling and submission of application forms and issue of admit cards, added Puroh.
