TSPSC GROUP 1 PRELIMS RESULTS: The latest update for aspirants who are waiting for TSPSC Group 1 Prelims results, as per the new information available from unofficial sources at TSPSC, Group 1 Prelims results might be delayed and most probably will be declared in February 2023. Citing various reasons for the delay of the TSPSC Group 1 Prelims examination, many are of the opinion that the Mains examination could inevitably be postponed to September 2023.
Reasons why TSPSC Group 1 Prelims Results will be further delayed
A piece of very bad news for aspirants awaiting Group 1 prelims results, owing to various administrative and legal reasons, it could be understood that TSPSC Group 1 results might take longer than expected and the chances of TSPSC declaring the results anytime soon is next to nil. As opposed to popular opinion, the Women’s horizontal reservation case is not the reason for this. Telangana Public Service Commission had already in principle agreed to the High Court orders on implementing the horizontal reservation for women. As such document agreeing to this was already submitted to the Honorable High Court of Telangana.
Even after agreeing to the implementation of the horizontal reservation principle for filling in women’s quota, there seems to be a technical hiccup that is preventing TSPSC from publishing the Group 1 prelims results.
As per the sources at TSPSC, this technical reason is one of the main reasons why TSPSC group 1 prelims results are delayed and might be delayed even further to the end of the first quarter next year.
Technical Reason for the Delay in TSPSC Group 1 Prelims Results
Both the government and TSPSC are in agreement with the high court’s opinion on implementing the horizontal reservation system for filling in women’s reservation quota, however, a lot of changes need to be implemented before declaring the result.
First, the roaster for reservation needs to be changed. After the bifurcation of the erstwhile state of Andhra Pradesh, the State of Telangana seems to be using the old roaster system for recruitment until now. To implement the horizontal reservation for women’s quota, a new rooster system needs to be notified for TSPSC recruitment. TSPSC has no authority in creating the new roaster system, only the state government can notify this with new government orders. And there is a standard procedure through which various government agencies supervised by GAD(General Administrative Department) are notified of these changes and then they have to submit the reassessed quotas and numbers based on this. Only after these changes were made, the new reservation system can be implemented as per the new roaster system that includes the new subordinate service rules.
Another issue that TSPSC is facing in the declaration of Group 1 results
General Administrative Department(GAD) had already notified some changes in the reservation roaster to implement the additional reservation for the ST category. The state government of Telangana has recently made some changes to implement additional the additional reservation for ST candidates in government recruitments. GO 33 was issued effectively increasing ST reservation from 6% to 10% in all government recruitments. Many are of the opinion that the new ST reservation might not be applicable to Group 1 recruitment considering the fact that the new reservation GO was released after the Group 1 notification. However, this too is challenged in the high court of Telangana and legal experts believe that the high court might consider the petitioner’s request and ask the government to implement the new reservation for ST candidates in Group 1 examination. In this case, TSPSC needs to make changes to the original quotas listed in the Group 1 notification, this would require some additional time from TSPSC before declaring the results.
Considering the above-stated reasons, the likelihood of TSPSC declaring the Group 1 results anytime soon is next to nil. In all probability, it would take at least 1-2 months of time to bring in the new changes in reservation quota, reservation roasters, and subordinate service rules to implement horizontal reservation for women’s quota posts along with additional reservations for ST category. Candidates are advised to keep these things in mind and be realistic in their preparation for Group 1 mains. We also advise you to not believe in online websites stories that are trying to clickbait the candidates with fake results articles. It is surprising to see that even popular media houses are involved in these cheap tactics to get traffic. On another note, TSPSC is set to declare the notification for Group 2 examination soon, it would be prudent for candidates to not focus on things that are not in their control and instead focus on upcoming examinations like group 2 along with their group 1 mains preparation.
