The advocate for the petitioner Jonnalagadda Sudheer said that discrepancies have been taking place since the issuance of notification.

In the preliminary examination, six wrong questions were given but despite the directions of the High Court and Supreme Court were not taken into consideration, he said.

The scaling system that was introduced was dismissed by the Tribunal and with this, the petitioner could get an opportunity to attend the interview. He said that the petitioner got 341 marks and 39 marks were given in the interview. However, those who could get less than 341 marks in the mains could get selection. He said that the petitioner was disqualified by giving low marks only with a vengeance that she approached the Tribunal. The advocate wanted a direction that the interviews should be conducted under the surveillance of CCTVs.
