Sindh High Court’s remarkable decision regarding Combined Competitive Exams 2020 of Sindh Public Service Commission under the supervision of Sindh High Court officials and Additional Registrars of Higher Education Commission is much appreciated. This decision is made to ensure the transparency and merit. In past, Sindh Public Service Commission remained controversial due to irregularities, nepotism and malpractices in the recruitment process and failed to ensure merit and transparency. The decision has brought some hope of merit for the candidates who are being appeared in CCE 2020. But there is still need of improvements at many stages of recruitment process in SPSC. It cannot be expected that conducting test of CCE under the officials of SHC guarantees 100% merit and this decision should not be limited only for Competitive exams only but is essential for all types of tests conducted by SPSC. At first, after the advertisement, the test should be conducted within 3 months. All the tests of BPS 16 and above may be conducted strictly in accordance with the relevant law, rules and regulations under the supervision of Sindh High Court and HEC officials. The list of all candidates who appeared in the test from top to bottom may be displayed on website whether they have qualified or failed the test without any delay. By doing this, candidates will be able to know his/her level of performance in the test and will help him/her for upcoming tests. After written test under supervision of SHC and HEC, qualified candidates may be called through call, message, sending letter on his/her postal address and via email to ensure that candidate has been informed for further requirements. In interview process, a panel of SPSC including SHC and HEC officials may be formed for transparency and final list may be uploaded on SPSC website within two weeks. Delay at any stage brings disappointment and anxiety among the candidates.
