The PSI recruitment exam was held in October last year. However, the results were rejected as several candidates used malpractices and unfair means to score well. The PSI scam has been making headlines ever since and is still being investigated by the CID, under which several senior officers have been arrested till date.

“Written exam for SI KSRP/ IRB has been conducted. Exam for SI CAR/ DAR is on Jan 8 and then for SI KSISF. Later we will conduct revision of 545 PSI (as per final order of High Court) and 402 PSI in that order,” DGP said on Twitter.
