AURANGABAD: Unlike a few other centres in Maharashtra, the public health department’s staff recruitment examination was held smoothly in Aurangabad, amid considerable absenteeism.
A total of 30,973 candidates had registered for examinations for both the sessions in Aurangabad. Of them, as many as 14,022 candidates did not turn for the tests. The examinations, meant for recruitment of around 160 posts of Class C employees in the Aurangabad division, were held across 63 centres in the city during morning and afternoon sessions.
Aurangabad district civil surgeon Dr Pradeep Kulkarni attributed around 45% absenteeism during the examinations to candidates who had applied for the same post from different divisions. “Such candidates appeared for the examination from one division only, leading to absenteeism at other centre,” he said.
As a special arrangement, few candidates who had difficulties in downloading hall-tickets were offered necessary on-spot help by the authorities. Kulkarni said logistics van carrying examination-related material was sent to Nashik with escort for further formalities.
The recruitment examination, which was earlier mired into controversy for multiple reasons including postponement over technical issues, will witness the next round for filling Class D posts on October 31.
