Job aspirants in dilemma over changed syllabus

With the abrupt decision of Telangana state government to change the syllabus for recruitment exams has left many students apprehensive as they had spent up to Rs 1 lakh towards coaching fees and accommodation in the city but due to political uncertainty, not a single job notification was issued in the last three years.

Prof. Haragopal, retired professor of Central University, appointed as chairman of the new syllabus committee will be person in charge of the committee consists of 25 subject experts. Prof M Kodandarami Reddy, Nandini Sidha Reddy and other prominent persons were in the committee.

TSPSC has now made it clear that the old syllabus drafted by APPSC in the united AP is “invalid” and it will come out with a “Telangana-centric new syllabus”.

According to subject experts, aspirants will now have to read up on history, polity, economic imperatives, social demographics and cultural aspects of Telangana.

“With the bifurcation of AP, the situation has changed now. There is nothing wrong in changing the syllabus to suit the present needs. The same applies to AP also,” said Prof. Haragopal.

TSPSC chairman Prof G. Chakrapani said, “Changing the syllabus in Telangana is necessary. Since the candidates who get selected have to serve the state for at least 20 years or more, they need to have knowledge on issues concerning Telangana. In the present syllabus, there is significant content relating to AP, which is irrelevant here. We will see that there is not much delay in drafting the new syllabus and issuing notifications.”
