Ashim Khurana was appointed as SSC chairman in December 2015 and his term got over on May 12, 2018

Yuva Halla Bol--a nationwide movement against unemployment in India--on Monday organised a press conference and demanded the removal of Ashim Khurana, Chairman, Staff Selection Commission (SSC).

It also demanded that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) investigation on the alleged paper leak should be completed in next 10 days.

“Khurana got retired on May 12, 2018, two days later a cabinet committee was set up under Prime Minister Narendra Modi of which Home Minister Rajnath Singh was also a part. The committee recommended granting an extension to Khurana and to change the retirement age from 62 years to 65 years,” said Yogendra Yadav, Swaraj India leader.

The move was criticised by Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) and Ministry of Law and Justice, he added.

“In RTI all the document were released but those pertaining to PM’s signature were claimed to be confidential and were not shared with us,” said Yadav.

Khurana—a Gujarat-cadre IAS officer--was given the extension after the alleged paper leak of the Combined Graduate Level (Tier II) Examination which was conducted by SSC.

He was appointed as SSC chairman in December 2015 and his term got over on May 12, 2018.
