In our endeavour to enhance transparency and ensure fair competition, OFRC invites contests from candidates with reference to the Phase I Examination for Direct Recruitment of IEs which was held on 10.09.2017. As per this scheme, any candidate who has a valid Roll Number for the aforementioned phase of the examination can contest the examination with respect to the questions, provisional answer keys, etc.

  • Candidates can contest against any question which was present in the question paper for the examination held on 10.09.2017, if they are of the opinion that the provisional answer key is wrong. Such contests submitted by the candidates will be examined by an Expert Panel, based on which the final answer key shall be prepared. The final evaluation shall be based on this final answer key prepared by Expert Panel after considering all contest received. The final answer key thus prepared by EXPERT PANEL after considering all contests shall be treated as FINAL.

  • The Provisional answer keys have been uploaded on 14-09-2017 for the information of all concerned. Contests are invited from the candidates from 14.09.2017 to 20-09-2017.

  • Please note that any contest received after the stipulated time period will not be entertained or looked into.

  • Please be informed that the candidates will have to pay Rs.100/- for each question contested as contest fees (non-refundable) through the payment link provided in the portal. For example, if a candidate has contested 5 questions, then he/she is required to pay Rs. 500/- through the payment link in the portal itself. However, under any circumstances, contest fee will not be refunded.

  • In case of network failure at the time of fee payment wherein amount has been debited and no confirmation is received, it is advisable to wait for 24 hrs for confirmation of the same through the website. Please do not attempt to make the payment twice instantly in such circumstances. In case of such multiple fee payments by candidates by mistake or otherwise, please be advised that the fees will not be refunded.

  • Candidates are strongly advised to contest well in time without waiting for the last date in order to qualify for the same.

  • The candidates should take note that only those contests which have been uploaded through the authorised portal with supporting documents and fee payment details will be responded and looked into. All other contests (without supporting documents &fee details) will be treated as incomplete and summarily rejected.  Please note that the contests sent through other modes will not be attended to.

  • In case the candidate is facing any problem, he/she may explain the grievance in the Help Desk Link provided in the portal. However, please note that any contest will not be entertained if sent through the HELP DESK or as mail to the aforementioned mail id.

The final answer key prepared by EXPERT PANEL after considering all contests shall be treated as FINAL.
