The SC vacation bench of Justices U U Lalit, Deepak Gupta on Tuesday (June 12) said that it will deliver its verdict on whether the main Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission (UPPSC) exams will be held on schedule (June 18). The case having come up late to the top court, the SC has reserved till June 17, a day before the exams, to decide if there will be a stay on the exams.
The issue has risen from petitions from many students who have complained to the top court that there were many discrepancies in the preliminary questions papers of the UPPSC, and hence the mains should be postponed for final court decision on the preliminary.
Earlier, following the prelims exam, petitions were filed in the Allahabad High Court claiming that answers to a few questions in the exam were wrong, ambiguous or complicated.
After that, Allahabad High Court had directed the UPPSC to re-evaluate answer sheets of the preliminary examination.
