Pune: After several complaints from various quarters of society, especially candidates appearing for various state competitive examinations, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday directed a stay on the examinations conducted through the Maha Pariksha Portal (MPP) examination till the ‘shortcomings’ do not get resolved.

The Maha Pariksha Portal was started by former chief minister Devendra Fadnavis government in 2017 to bring transparency to the recruitment process of class 3 and class 4 staff in the State government.

However, it ran into several irregularities since then, which included sudden shutdown of computers, power cuts during exam time, delays in result declarations, and several other mismanagements in the examination previously conducted by the MPP.
