The Jharkhand High Court is taking a strict stance against reported discrepancies in the 6th JPSC Result 2021. The High Court has ordered the state government to cancel the 6th JPSC result and issue revised merit lists within 8 weeks. As per latest reports, while the Jharkhand Public Service Commission released the result of the Jharkhand 6th Civil Services Exam 2021, certain applicants have filed a petition that the Commission has not followed the correct protocol for the preparation of the merit lists.
