The Central Government on Friday informed the Supreme Court that it is not in agreement with an extra chance being given to civil service aspirants in UPSC exams. The Court has asked the government to file an affidavit submitting the same by January 25, 2021.

A bench led by Justice A.M. Khanwilkar issued the direction while hearing a plea seeking an extra chance for civil service aspirants in wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent difficulties.

Additional Solicitor General S.V. Raju had in the previous hearing submitted that the Central Government and the Union Public Service Commission were actively considering it.

The Apex Court in September 2020 had directed the Central Government and the UPSC to consider granting an extra chance to candidates who otherwise had their last attempt in 2020 and also to consider extending the upper age limit.
