Chairing the meeting at Raj Bhavan in Itanagar, the governor emphasised on conduct of flawless state service examination. He said that there must be correct supervision of the examination processes at every step and every officer should be held accountable fully for his role in conduct of the examination.

Sharing his experiences and ideas with the Commission members for question paper setting, examination centre arrangement and strong room operation, answer sheet, result compilation and viva-voice, the governor advised the Commission on ensuring videography in the examination and at interview centres, and surveillance by anti-copying flying squads.

He suggested to the Commission members to plan centralised paper setting and evaluation processes.

Chief Minister Pema Khandu said that there is a shortage of administrative and police officers in entry grade, which is affecting governance. He assured full cooperation of the state government and expressed his hope that very soon the Commission will recommend the best human resources on merit for the state services.

Khandu advised the APPSC officers to be extra careful and perform their duty with dedication.

Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein, Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar and members of APPSC also participated in the discussion. APPSC Chairman Nipo Nabam, members of the Commission – Tsering Naksang, Gamli Padu and Ganesh Singh Bisht along with chief secretary and Inspector General of Police Chuku Apa were present in the meeting.
