KPSC Chairman T Shyam Bhat inaugurates workshop for 1500+ participants at Bangalore University

BENGALURU, 09.02.2018 : Karnataka Public Service Commission (KPSC) Chairman T Shyam Bhat today announced that the government recruitment platform would consider candidates, who studied through Distance Learning programmes, for its competitive examinations.

Addressing a workshop conducted by the Bangalore University’s Directorate of Distance Learning, Mr. Bhat said graduates, who completed their programmes through Distance Learning, would not face any problem in appearing for examinations conducted by the KPSC for various government vacancies.

“Today, education is critical for everyone as success is impossible in the absence of a proper certification. Students attended classes… they study from home for Distance Learning programmes. This helps many sections of society, including women, and job-seekers. So, one cannot discriminate against these sections during recruitment,” Mr. Bhat added.

More than academic achievements, it is important to have general knowledge to appear for KAS examinations conducted by the KPSC. “Therefore, candidates, who have earned their graduation through distance learning programmes, need not have any concerns of rejection by the KPSC for competitive examinations,” he asserted.

Mr. Bhat pointed out that the KPSC had been conducting competitive examinations smoothly. “The previous examinations did not have any controversy. There have been no legal issues. We will conduct the competitive examinations this time also without any problems,” he said.

After releasing a CD on the occasion, he wished the best of luck for participants of the workshop, which created awareness among job seekers about the advantage of Distance Learning.

Prof. N.R. Shetty, Hon’ble Chancellor, Central University of Karnataka, Prof. V. Sudesh, Hon’ble Vice Chancellor, Bangalore University, Mr. S. Narayan, renowned Film Director, and Dr. R. Lakshminarayana, Member, KPSC, Udyog Soudha, Bengaluru, were present on the occasion.

The workshop was organised by Prof. B.C. Mylarappa, Director, Distance Education, Jnanabharati Bangalore University, who addressed the gathering of 1500+ participants.
