As per the schedule announced by TSPSC, the Group II exams should have been held on April 24 and 25.

Students and unemployed youth had been agitating for awhile demanding postponement of Group II and constable exams since they were clashing with other competitive exam dates. The students were also demanding increase of Group II posts from 439 to 3,500 and that the government should do away with the interview round for the exam.
