Supreme Courtroom Asks Heart Whether or not to Ease the Age of UPSC Candidates Who Made Their Final Try – LexForti Authorized Information & Journal
The Apex court asked the center if there was a provision to relax the age of UPSC candidates who showed up for their final attempt this year.
The intervener argued that the most vulnerable category of candidates was the age-restricted group and that it was arbitrary not to give them a second chance.
This question came up when the SC / ST candidates and the disabled candidates were not relaxed.
The Bank asked the intervener for suggestions on how the age could be eased, to which he replied that the authority to relax the age of the candidates rests with the Center and should therefore be used to help the most vulnerable category.
The petitioner’s attorney highlighted the events when the Center used that power in 2014 and 2015 to ease the age of candidates who had come for public service examination.
However, the bank expressed its dislike of the bill, stating that if permission is given for this review, other board reviews could seek similar relief.
The petitioner stated that “last chance candidates” should be treated homogeneously.
The petitioners also sought relaxation for those candidates who did not have access to the internet Study material and for women who have had to change their schedule due to household situations.
The Apex court found that such decisions are political decisions for which the authority rests with the center.
The additional attorney general believed that candidates who showed up for the exam had the option of withdrawing if they felt they could not prepare well.
The bank directed the ASG to discuss the matter with the center and submit the response. If not, the bank would decide the case at its best.
