Applying to SPSC

Published Dec 07, 2012 12:06am

EVERY year the Sindh Public Service Commission (SPSC) announces numerous posts in different departments under the generally accepted principles of the Sindh government.

According to the recent policy of the SPSC, one has to apply online only. It is really strange. How a student can apply online from a place where a toilet facility is a luxury for most of the people?

Neither the Internet facility is available to all, nor is it easy to understand the procedure. Therefore, this has generated some employment in the informal sector.

Typists are now available with their systems to fill out your form, charging high (on a piece rate, as well as on an hourly basis). Applicants wait for hours for their turn.

This method has been introduced for the first time in Sindh. However, there are those local candidates who do not use computers for one reason or the other. In view of the existing obstacles and misunderstandings about the last date for submitting applications, some candidates miss the opportunity even after filling the challan.

I request the Sindh government and the SPSC to make extension in application dates. Furthermore, I request the SPSC to adopt both by post and online application systems to facilitate candidates.
