Delhi: Delhi Hight Court, on Thursday, said that there will no postponement in the current exam schedule of the UPSC Mains examination. The court heard a plea to postpone the Union Public Service Commission Mains exams scheduled from January 7 to 16, 2022. To defend the plea, the UPSC counsel said that they had distributed the admit cards and even the centres have been prepared for the students.
They added further that they are adhering to all norms dictated by the district authorities and trying their level best to ensure safety and security during the examination.
Advocate Kapadia, hearing the plea said, “The candidates need to survive the pandemic to get appointed. It’s very short-sighted to argue that appointments need to be made. Several other exams have been deferred during the second wave of COVID.”
He added further, “There is a fundamental right to be safe and protect your health. This exam is a test of mind and not of survival of the fittest.”
He opined that the colleges and schools are already shut in the light of the recent situation including public transport. It is safety of the students.
