On 27th Feb 2018, several Jobs aspirants gathered for a massive agitation against SSC at the SSC headquarters in New Delhi. After staging a protest at CGO complex, the protesters will march towards Department of Personnel and Training.

- A Recruitment process that is time bound
- Fair Exam System
- Fewer incidences of Cheating
- Exam normalization
- Action against those who cheat in exams
The protesters want corrective action in SSC that has been steadily delaying the recruitment process and not giving jobs to selected candidates.
Through Peaceful Protest by Students on Feb 27th 2018 near SSC Headquarters Qualified candidates are demanding a fair recruitment process.
On January 22 2018, About 300-350 students made a peaceful protest against SSC for not giving them jobs despite selection. About 10, 661 candidates have qualified in the SSC CGL 2016 Exam. However, most of them are yet to get jobs and appointment letters. The entire process of recruitment has been futile as it has yielded nothing for these candidates who have spent their time and energy in clearing the exams. The Final merit list for SSC CGL 2016 was released in 2017 and since then none of the candidates. Several students from SSC CGL 2015 batch and SSC CGL 2017 batch were also part of the protest.The reason could be partly owing to the economic crisis that the country is going through. However, not giving jobs that were promised to candidates who went through a rigorous recruitment process is certainly unjustified.

The SSC CGL 2016 was held in June 2016 and the complete merit list was declared on August 5th 2017 after several court cases. Several candidates who have been placed in various government departments still wait for their jobs despite being part of the merit list. These students have cleared all exams.
Such a case of promised jobs not being given to candidates can be seen in case of some large MNC’s who were unable to give jobs to IIM graduates who were selected as part of campus recruitment process partly owing to the economic slowdown that happened in 2016. Following the failed recruitment process, these companies or MNC’s were blacklisted from IIM as they could not allow jobs to candidates selected for campus recruitment.
The SSC Declared the revised marks of Tier I and Tier II exams for SSC CGL 2016. The SSC declared the revised marks for SSC CGL Tier 1 exam on January 11 2018. The SSC CGL Tier I 2017 exam was held from August 4th August 24th across India.
The results were declared in October last year, but owing to a technical glitch the commission released final answer keys that were found to be incorrect. The event led to the lowering of the cutoff marks and eventually to the reduction of marks according to a report that appeared in Hindustan Times.
Several Candidates are dissatisfied with the performance of the Staff Selection Commission and the lengthy recruitment process that goes on for a long time. The SSC Recruitment process is fraught with several imperfections like frequent postponement of exams, cancellations, technical glitches, paper leakages, delay in appointment of candidates despite selection. All SSC candidates are extremely unhappy with such incidences.
In the last few years, unemployment in our country has been at a high. Government is unable to create jobs for the youth either in private sector as well in the PSU’s.
We hope that government addresses the grievances of the SSC aspirants.
