Both Aysha Makrani and Shri Tushar have acted in contravention of the provisions of the Rules of the Civil Services Examination, 2022 notified by the Government of India.
- Both Are Fake: Tushar Kumar from Haryana and Ayesha Makrani
The Union Public Service Commission has taken cognizance of the double Ayasha and Tushar cases and cleared the matter. The UPSC is also mulling criminal action against Ayasha Makrani & Tushar Kumar, who falsely claimed to be toppers and created confusion, besides casting doubts on the Commission’s integrity.
While Ayasha Makrani scored 22.2, Tushar got 22.9 respectively in UPSC prelims-2022, and both failed in CSAT as well.
WHAT IS CASE
After the civil services exam-2022 results were declared on May 23, there was a dispute regarding 2 ranks when 4 people claimed that UPSC had given them same ranks.
Ayasha Fatima and Ayasha Makrani of Madhya Pradesh claimed 184th rank. While the 44th rank was claimed by two boys named Tushar Kumar, one from Bihar and other from Haryana.
But now UPSC has solved the puzzle.
UPSC has termed the claims of Ayasha Makrani and Tushar Kumar of Haryana as fake. It means that Ayasha Fatima and Tushar Kumar of Bihar will be considered as successful candidates in UPSC CSE-2022.
The Commission has also issued a press release accusing Ayasha Makrani and Tushar Kumar of Haryana of making fake claims. It has also talked about taking criminal and disciplinary action against both.
UPSC said, “It has come to the notice of us that two persons have been claiming fraudulently, that they have been finally recommended by the UPSC in the CSE, 2022 against two Roll Numbers of genuinely recommended candidates. The claims of both persons are fake. They have forged the documents in their favour to buttress their claims.”
The UPSC further stated that its system is robust as well as fool proof and such errors are not possible.
In the instant cases, the details of both fake candidates and findings are as under:
(I) Ms. Aysha Makrani d/o Shri Salimmuddin Makrani, who is claiming her final recommendation by the UPSC, is found to have forged the documents in her favour. Her actual Roll Number is 7805064. She appeared in the Preliminary Examination held on 5th June, 2022 and scored only 22.22 marks in General Studies Paper-I and 21.09 marks in General Studies Paper-II. As per the requirement of Examination Rules, she was required to score at least 66 marks in Paper-II. She has not only failed to qualify in Paper-II but scored far less marks than the cut-off marks of Paper-I, which were 88.22 for unreserved category for the Preliminary Examination of the year 2022. Hence, Ms. Aysha Makrani has failed at the stage of the Preliminary Examination itself and could not move further in next stages of the Examination. On the other hand, Ms. Ayasha Fatima d/o Shri Naziruddin, bearing Roll Number 7811744, is the genuine candidate, who has been recommended by the UPSC, securing 184th rank in the final result of the Civil Services Examination, 2022.
(II) Similarly, in case of Tushar as well, it is found that Tushar s/o Shri Brijmohan from Rewari, Haryana had applied for the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination, 2022. He was allotted Roll Number 2208860 for this Examination. He appeared in the Preliminary Examination and scored minus 22.89 (i.e. -22.89) marks in General Studies Paper-I and 44.73 marks in General Studies Paper-II. As per the requirement of Examination Rules, he was required to score at least 66 marks in Paper-II. Thus, even Shri Tushar has failed at the stage of the Preliminary Examination itself and could not move further in next stages of the Examination. On the other hand, it is confirmed that Tushar Kumar s/o Ashwini Kumar Singh, bearing Roll Number 1521306, of State of Bihar is the genuine candidate, who has been recommended by the UPSC at 44th rank.
By doing so both Ms. Aysha Makrani and Shri Tushar have acted in contravention of the provisions of the Rules of the Civil Services Examination, 2022 notified by the Government of India (Department of Personnel & Training).
Therefore, in accordance with the provisions of the Examination Rules, the UPSC is contemplating both criminal as well as disciplinary penal action against both candidates for their fraudulent acts.
