(This post is just to wipe out the confusion among PA/SA Exam Aspirants and the views expressed below are the views of the Administrators of this blog, being written for the help of candidates and nothing below should be treated as official).
Friends...the basis of this post "Whether Postal/Sorting Assistant Exam 2014 Notification is fake?" is this news paper cutting that appeared in last weeks Dainik Bhaskar's Patna Edition.
Ever since the news appeared in the news paper and followed by sharing on various Postal Assistant Exam facebook pages and groups including ours ( Postal Assistant Examination) we have been flooding with queries from all over India. We first noticed the news when it was shared by one of our friend in our page raising the question. We first thought that it might be a photo created by someone for joke to just to create panic among the aspirants. Later only it was confirmed that it was a piece of news item appeared in a news paper. To all those who have raised questions in our blog/fb page we have clearly replied that "Some fake news are being spread to misguide the aspirants..don't belive in those." from the starting itself. We are still receiving the same questions and hence thought of publishing this post.
The article in newspaper said that the recruitment for PA/SA 2014 is fake and DoP website was hacked and somebody posted some external links (www.pasadrexam2014.in) and that website is being maintained by a private person. Even the telephonic conversation with that person was given.
The truth is: The Postal Department is conducting the PA/SA Exam 2014 through an approved outsourced agency viz. M/s CMC Limited. All process including accepting of application till creation of final rank list is being done by this approved outsourced agency. Hence, the website www.pasadrexam2014.in is also being maintained by that agency.
May be the author of the newspaper report have overlooked into this without knowing the actual facts.
Reasons to believe and truth:
1) The notification for PA/SA DR Exam 2014 was released on 21 February 2014 by the Recruitment wing of DoP and was first published in the India Post website on 24 Feb 2014 morning.
