ITANAGAR, Mar 31: The Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) has informed that a circular doing the rounds in the social media regarding the announcement of the Arunachal Pradesh Combined Competitive Examinations (Preliminary) date is a hoax.
The circular, dated 29 March, 2018, states that the Commission has fixed the date for conducting the APPSCCE (Preliminary) on 20 May, 2018, under the authority of one Gabru Khangkak as secretary.
When contacted, the Commission informed that it has not decided on the examination date yet, and that even if it did, it would have announced it a month prior to the scheduled date of examination.
On the undersigned secretary’s name, it clarified that Onit Panyang is still the APPSC secretary and there is no official in the Commission who goes by the name of Gabru Khangkak.
It also informed that the preliminary examination date cannot be announced just yet, as various colleges have examinations which will run well towards the end of May.
The APPSC website also does not carry any updates on the examination date.
