The University Grants Commission (UGC) received alarming inputs from the National Cyber Crime Threat Analytics Unit of the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre (I4C) under the Ministry of Home Affairs on June 19th, 2024. Preliminary findings indicate potential compromises to the integrity of the examination.

The announcement emphasizes the government’s commitment to fair examination practices. A new date for the rescheduled examination will be announced separately, ensuring all affected candidates are duly informed.

Furthermore, the issue has been escalated to the Central Bureau of Investigation (C.B.I.) for an in-depth investigation, highlighting the government’s zero-tolerance approach towards any malpractices.
