The Punjab Public Service Commission (PPSC) has canceled all interviews and physiological examinations scheduled for this week.
An official statement from the commission’s spokesperson said that the decision has been taken due to the suspension of inter-city transport by the provincial government.
“It is informed that all ongoing/scheduled interviews from 07-09-2021 to 10-09-2021 (Tuesday-Friday) and Psychological Assessment dated 08-09-2021 (Wednesday) have been postponed. This decision has been taken due to the suspension of inter-city transport service by the government,” the statement said.
Further, the PPSC has also removed the announced schedule for interviews from the website. The new dates for interviews will be notified to shortlisted candidates through SMS, it added.
