Recently the Central government has decided on the case concerning the UPSC candidate’s extra chance. The government, represented by Additional Solicitor General SV Raju, submitted the final decision made by the Centre and Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) and the government in the Supreme Court.
The bench which heard the matter was headed by Justice AM Khanwilkar. The decision was that the relaxation of the rules will only apply to those candidates who have exhausted their attempts in the Civil Service Examination (CSE)-2020. No relaxation will be given for those candidates who have not exhausted their permissible number of attempts or for those candidates who are already age barred from the examination.
This will only be a one-time relaxation, will not be repeated in the future. The Court heard the decision and stated they wanted to read the note themselves as it was not straightforward as it involved many conditions. The case will now be heard again on Monday, 8th February.
