Lucknow, July 25 (IANS) The Uttar Pradesh Police Recruitment Board is yet to come up with fresh dates for exams for the post of Sub-Inspectors which were cancelled earlier, an official said on Tuesday.

The exams, which were to be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, were cancelled after reports that the paper had been leaked. The Chief Minister’s office had directed the Home Department to look into the allegations.

The recruitment for posts of Sub-Inspectors (2,707 males and 600 females) were to be done in the civil police, fire department and the Provincial Armed Constabulary. The vacancies were floated in 2016 and 6.30 lakh-plus applications were received.

The Bharatiya Janata Party government began the online exam process from July 17 and it was to go on till July 31, until the paper leak surfaced on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the Tata Consultancy Services, which has been named as the technical service provider by sections of the media for the online exams, has refuted any association with the exams.

“TCS is not associated in any manner with the UP Police Recruitment exams. News reports on TCS providing technical services to these exams are hence factually incorrect and completely erroneous.” a company spokesperson told IANS.
