Subsequently, CGPSC constituted the expert body that published its responses on May 29 and subsequently the results were declared on June 12 for the general examination. After the declaration of the result on May 29, at least 90 candidates had presented petitions at the HC questioning the answers to 12 questions resolved by the body of experts, ”Sharma told HT.
