Two candidates with the same name and roll number from different states, Haryana and Bihar, who have the same first name, claim All India 44th rank in the UPSC examination. UPSC results were declared on Tuesday.

Students are identified as Tushar Kumar from Rewari, Haryana, and Tushar Kumar from Bhagalpur, in Bihar. Both claim to have taken the personality test at the UPSC headquarters in New Delhi at 1 pm on May 8 and to have placed 44th overall.

Tushar from Bihar said that he discovered the information through news sources. He reported that Tushar from Haryana had received congratulations from the local government for earning the 44th spot. He said that this was my sixth try and had previously participated in the interviews four times but could not pass. When we learned that someone else was claiming credit for my labours, my family and friends were cheering,” he stated. He said that he had reported this to Kaimur SP as a complaint.

In addition, he charged that the Haryana resident had faked his admission card despite his repeated requests for him to release them. “Unlike mine, his admission card does not have his Aadhaar information. While my QR code displays all of my information, the man added that his call letter’s QR code does not.

Haryana’s Tushar denied the claim and said he will go to the UPSC headquarters to get clarification from the staff. Furthermore, he added that I have been studying in Rewari since I lost my parents a few years ago, and I passed the test without any coaching.

Both of them decided to approach the police station for more clarity now. This is not the first time which is happened like this. Two women candidates with the same name – Ayesha – one from Dewas district and the other from Alirajpur district of Madhya Pradesh, have been battling it out to claim the 184th rank in 2022 results.
