JPSC has also requested for constitution of a committee to prepare the syllabus and question bank in various tribal and regional languages.

Major changes in the syllabus of JPSC for recruitment of class 1and 2 level officers at the state level are as follows:

  • A separate general studies paper in the preliminary examinations focussing entirely on Jharkhand
  • The language paper of the mains exam including all regional and tribal languages, besides Hindi and English- will be of 150 marks.
  • The Social Science paper in mains examination would now have 40 per cent questions specifically related to Jharkhand.
  • Now the aspirants will get a carbon copy of the OMR sheets in the prelims exams and their answer scripts and also their applications will not be cancelled on technical grounds.
