With ex-Delhi Police chief B.S. Bassi becoming a member of UPSC for five years, JNU students will have a tough time entering and rather topping the UPSC recruitments for IAS and other central services exams as was the trend for over three decades.
The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) conducts the civil services examination to select IAS, IPS and other central services officers and it has 10 members besides a Chairperson.
Bassi was a 1977 batch IPS officer who retired as Delhi Police chief in February this year after nation-wide uproar over his haste in arresting JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar and others from the campus and slapping notorious sedition charges against them.
As his entry to the Central Vigilance Commission was stalled, he was rewarded with the next plum post that may hit JNUites the most in UPSC exams. As a member, he will be heading any interview panel which awards the crucial marks in personality test to those who qualify in Civil Services Main Exams.
