The candidates have been debarred from appearing in any competitive examination in the country, including those conducted by UPSC and UPPSC. They have been debarred for a year, starting November 15.
Officials of UPPSC have communicated to all commissions them about the ban on the four aspirants.
The Combined Junior Engineer Examination-2013 was held on May 22-23, 2016. The matter came to light when the answer sheets were evaluated recently by a panel of experts. The currency notes were in the dominations of Rs 500 and Rs 2000.
UPPSC secretary Jagdish said, “Money was found pinned up in answer sheets. There is no provision of lodging FIR so we have debarred them which is a big punishment for candidates who are degree holders and were seeking a government job.”
