IMPHAL, Apr 5 : Alleging that there were instances of mark tampering in the recent MTS Examination of Manipur State Cooperative Bank Ltd, the Kangleipak Students' Association (KSA) has urged the bank in question to come out with an answer within 5 days.
Briefing media persons at Khuyathong today, HRD secretary of KSA, Romen Soibamcha claimed that there are irregularities in the written test which was held on December 20, 2020, for selecting 16 multi-tasking staff.
The result of the examination was declared on March 31, he said and added that some candidates not satisfied with their marks filed an RTI and on checking the answer scripts, found their mark deducted for correct answers.
Saying that the association (KSA) also found the marks given were non-uniform when going through the answer scripts of the complainants, Romen alleged that marks of some of the candidates were deduced repeatedly by overwriting the scripts. This exposure indicates that the bank is deliberately trying to select their favoured candidates through fraudulent activities, Romen claimed and added that the KSA takes the matter very seriously as it disheartens the deserving candidates.
He then urged the Manipur State Cooperative Bank Ltd to clarify within 5 days, cautioning that the students body will take its own course of action if the demand is not heeded.
