  17. Hi,
    sir i had given a apfc 2012 exam on 23/09/2012 but unforunately i am not selected candidate,
    but its clears my exam was good, and i solved 85 right quetions,
    please help me how to be right RTI letter of upsc regarding my selection,
    because really i deserved candidate for apfc position. please help me, i Request you,
    please reply….

  18. mrunal sir,
    i verified the airworthy officers selection list. it found that within five interview boards in a day there is much variation of number of selected candidates. for ex on 19 march12 selected candidates from each boards are 8,4,3,7,0. means one board selected 8 candidates at the same time other board selected no candidate.it clearly shows that one board awarding marksliberally and other board giving less marks to candidate. so the fate of the candidate is depending upon the board since the written marks are no matter as in in APFC. where is the justice. sir do something to curb this. save our future from the unscientific approaches followed by the upsc. we hope u r d right person. u r our hope.
