SC Issues Notice to Centre and UPSC on Plea to Postpone CSE Prelims Exam
The Supreme Court on September 24, 2020, has issued a notice to the Centre and the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC). The notice has been sent on a plea to postpone the UPSC Civil Services Prelims Exam. The UPSC CSE exam date 2020 is October 04, 2020.
The notice was sent from the court of Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice Sanjiv Khanna from Court No. 5 on September 24, 2020, at 10:30 am.
Aspirants who are trending #postpone_karo_upsc are seeing the Supreme Court notice as a positive sign. Earlier on August 21, 2020, Supreme Court Advocate Alakh Alok Srivastava submitted letter on behalf of a group of UPSC CSE aspirants to the UPSC Chairman seeking the postponement of the upcoming Civil Services (Preliminary) exam.
With the #Postpone_Karo_UPSC trending all over, civil services candidates are protesting against the authority to shift the dates for the prelims exam. They are raising their voices through various social media platforms. In one such instance, there is an aspirant from Bihar who has been on a hunger strike for 5 days to get the prelims postponed. Priya Kumari is an engineering graduate and has gone all way ahead to raise the voice. Earlier, there was also news that a delegation of eight UPSC aspirants met the commission on Tuesday and submitted a petition to them seeking the postponement of the exam.
Candidates are believing that the decision-makers might postpone the exam for a further date. However, the chances of postponement seems scarce as UPSC recently conducted NDA exam and the NTA held the engineering and medical exams all over the country.
