Ludhiana, September 18

The Punjab Police cancelled the exam for the recruitment of head constables at the eleventh hour. The exam was scheduled to be conducted at the Trade Centre in Ludhiana today.

Candidates from across the state and neighbouring states such as Rajasthan, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, etc, had reached the centre and were shocked to know that their exam was already cancelled. Sandeep Singh, a candidate from Rajasthan, while talking to The Tribune, said the department sent an email late night regarding the change in exam centre and date.

He said they should have been informed about the cancellation of exam in advance so that time of candidates like him, who had to come from far-off places, could be saved from the harassment.

According to the email sent to the aspirants, the exam had been cancelled due to a technical glitch and the candidates would be allocated a new test centre. The revised exam date would also be communicated shortly, stated the email received by the candidate at 11 pm on Friday.

The recruitment helpline desk said the candidates were informed about the change via email and those who did not see the email reached the exam centre.
