Rajasthan Public Service Commission has deferred the 2020 Veterinary Officer recruitment exam. The official notice regarding the deferral is published at the RPSC website. However, the Commission did not indicate any future dates on when the exam might be conducted.
RPSC has notified earlier this year that it will conduct the Veterinary Officer recruitment exam on April 29, 2020. However, the Commission has notified that the exam date is postponed till further notice.
RPSC Veterinary Officer 2020 Exam
Rajasthan Public Service Commission published official advertisement for the recruitment of 900 Veterinary Officers earlier. The Commission indicated that eligible candidates will be selected for appointment into the posts through a written exam and final interview.
The written exam was earlier scheduled to be conducted as per the tentative dates. The examination consists of a 100 marks paper having two parts. Accordingly, the Commission published the detailed syllabus of the exam and the exam pattern.
RPSC Veterinary Officer 2020 applicants were awaiting the release of the admit cards before the exam. However, now that the country is locked down into an emergency, there is no way that the Commission can conduct the exam until the lockdown is removed. Therefore, it is highly unlikely for rescheduled exam dates to be announced, until the Covid-19 pandemic is controlled.
RPSC Veterinary Officer 2020 Exam Postponed due to Covid-19
RPSC Veterinary Officer exam date was announced earlier to be held on April 29, 2020. However amidst the nation-wide lockdown orders imposed by the government, i was predictable that the Commission could postpone the exam.
Accordingly, a postponement notice is published by the Commission on the official website. We have provided a snapshot of the notice below. However, the RPSC did not specifically cite the ongoing emergency as the reason for the postponement.

Impact of Covid-19 on Government Exams
The deadly Covid-19 virus has now spread into a global pandemic. As isolated cases of detection started emerging in various Indian states, the government issued nation-wide orders to shut down schools and colleges. However, the outbreak could not be contained and as more cases were registered, the government imposed a nationwide lockdown. As India currently observes the lockdown, all education and corporate sectors remain shutdown.
As a result of the country-wide lockdown imposed in India, various government recruitment examinations were postponed during the last two to three weeks. Conducting bodies have displayed or released postponement notices at the official websites. Understandably, RPSC is similarly pushed to postpone the upcoming Veterinary Officer recruitment examination as a result of the Covid-19 related lockdown in India.
