Despite the protests from young individuals urging the postponement of the RAS Main examination, the Rajasthan Public Service Commission (RPSC) has affirmed its commitment to the established timeline. The examination is set to take place on January 27-28, 2024, and the RPSC has stated that there will be no change in the schedule.
Candidates preparing for the RAS examination gathered outside the residence of BJP leader Rajendra Rathore, urging for a postponement of the exam. They argued that the duration of less than three months between the preliminary and mains examinations is insufficient.
Officials claim that the protest might be influenced by coaching institutes in the state, suggesting that prolonged postponements could benefit these institutes by encouraging more aspirants to enroll in additional preparatory courses.
RPSC officials emphasize their commitment to conducting recruitment exams promptly to address the backlog of vacant positions across various departments. Approximately 20,000 candidates who passed the RAS pre-examination are expected to participate in the upcoming mains.
"Students who have cleared the RAS preliminary examination are very well preparing for the examination, RPSC will continue with conducting the examination on the scheduled date. On one hand, youth has been protesting that recruitment exams must be conducted in a timely manner, and when it is being done, they are staging protests." - Sanjay Shrotriya, chairman RPSC
