Hyderabad: Candidates appearing for the written test for the posts of Junior Accounts Officers (JAO) posts of BSNL were in for a rude shock when the examination centre was shifted to Chennai at the last moment on Sunday.
Several aspirants were forced to miss the exam when a board with a message – “BSNL examination centre shifted to Chennai. For details, contact officials in Hyderabad,” greeted aspirants at an examination centre at Shadan College.
It led to confusion among the candidates as several aspirants rushed to the Telephone Bhavan and staged a demonstration demanding authorities to re-conduct the exam.
Mild tension prevailed as they tried to force their way in. However, policemen intervened and dispersed them. None of the BSNL officials were available to give any clarification.
More than 2,000 aspirants from different parts of the State had come to the city to attend the test.
