HC asks UPSC Why extra chance only those who did not appear in 2011

Allahabad high court asked Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) to file its reply on a petition challenging the extra chance given this year to those civil services aspirants who could not appear in exams held in 2011 on account of the introduction of CSAT.



A petition asking as to why was an extra chance given only to the 2011 aspirants was filed by advocate Animesh Singh and two others. A division bench, comprising Justice Arun Tandon and Justice Bharat Bhushan, asked UPSC to file its counter affidavit and fixed August 31 as the next date of hearing on the petition.



At the next hearing the commission has been asked to explain the rationale behind giving extra chance only to those who could not appear in 2011 when the agitation against CSAT, mainly by Hindi medium students, had been underway since 2010 and many of those who did not appear in 2011 may have taken the tests in the subsequent years.



In 2011 a total of 4.72 lakh candidates had applied for the UPSC examination, out of which 2.43 lakh appeared for the exams. The Central Administrative Tribunal had passed an order for giving an extra chance to those candidates who could not appear in 2011.



The Union Public Service Commission conducts the civil services examination in three phases- preliminary exam, mains and an interview round. Clearing all three rounds makes the candidates eligible for the posts of Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and Indian Police Service (IPS), amongst others. The preliminary examinations for civil services were conducted on August 23.
