The federal Government has announced that those who have last a chance at the UPSC exam in 2020 will be given a second chance at the exam if they miss it due to the corona impact.
Rashna Singh, a civil service candidate, had filed a petition in the apex court seeking reinstatement of those who had their last chance at the UPSC first round on October 4 last year and missed the exam due to the Corona impact. The Supreme Court, which heard the case, directed the Central Government and the Central Public Service Commission to reconsider.
The Department of Personnel and Training told the court on Oct. 26 that the issue of providing additional opportunities for selectors was under consideration by authorities. In this context, the Federal Government said on January 22 that the Department of Personnel and Training should not grant re-employment on behalf of the Central Government, while those who failed the examination on January 25 could not be re-employed.
In this context, the Supreme Court on January 29 asked the Central Court to explain why it could not grant reconsideration. In this context, the Central Government has informed the Supreme Court that those who have the last chance to appear for the UPSC Civil Service Examination in 2020 due to COVID-19 will be given additional opportunity.
A total of 4, 86,952 people turned out for the October 4 exams. The announcement of the Civil Service 2021 examination will be made on February 10.
