The Supreme Court has refused to scrap the SSC CGL 2017 Exam. Earlier, SSC CGL Paper Leak petition was filed in the Supreme Court to put a stay order on issuing the joining letter to the shortlisted candidates in the SSC Combined Graduate Level (CGL) Examination 2017. The Supreme Court also formed a seven-member committee with the objective to make entrance examinations for jobs and admission to educational institutions fool proof.
The SSC CGL Paper Leak petition was filed by advocate Gaurav Gupta in the context of several malpractices and use of unfair means that came into light during the SSC CGL 2017 exam. The petition filed by Gaurav Gupta said, “"During the conduct of CGLE-17 on February 21, 2018, several malpractices and illegalities came to light. The irregularities reported related to cheating through screen sharing software, sharing of answer key on social media even before the commencement of the exam”.
