Delhi High Court has dismissed a petition to postpone the UPSC Civil Services (Main) exams
Hearing the plea, Justice Kameshwar Rao said, "not inclined to interfere."
The Delhi High Court on Thursday rejected a request to postpone the Civil Services (Main) Examination 2021, which is set to commence tomorrow.
"Not inclined to interfere," Justice Kameshwar Rao stated after hearing the case.
Several applicants requested that the schedule be postponed until the COVID-19 crisis is resolved, but the HC denied their request.
The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) announced on Wednesday that the Civil Services (Main) Examination, 2021, will begin on Friday as planned.
The UPSC had requested that state governments guarantee that candidates and test officials are not inconvenienced during their transit.
The UPSC stated that the states have been instructed to use the candidates' e-admit cards and the examination officials' identity cards as movement passes if necessary.''After carefully reviewing the situation prevailing due to COVID-19 pandemic, the Commission has decided to conduct the Civil Services (Main) Examination, 2021 as per schedule i.e. on 7th, 8th, 9th, 15th and 16th January, 2022,'' it said in a statement.
The civil services test is held every year in three stages: preliminary, main, and interview, and it is used to choose officers for the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS), and Indian Police Service (IPS), among others.
