The Supreme Court has refused to give such candidates additional opportunities. This decision will affect more than 2000 candidates. Due to the coronation of such national candidates, the final effort was completed in 2020. The Supreme Court has ruled on the application seeking additional opportunities for candidates for the UPSC Civil Services Preliminary Examination (UPSC Civil Services Examination).

The apex court had asked the central government to consider giving opportunity to the candidates who were denied age in the UPSC exams. The Center, however, agreed to give extra opportunities to UPSC candidates, but further said that only those who had exhausted all their opportunities in the 2020 exams could be given extra opportunities.

At the hearing, the Supreme Court said the epidemic situation was exceptional and that some of the candidates were working in essential services. There are also some real facts. In this case, the applicants are seeking a one-time discount for each department. The issue of the center should be considered, because this time the situation is extraordinary. The court does not want to order the government on this policy. The court on Tuesday asked the central government to inform it and the matter was heard again today.

Additional Solicitor General (ASG) SV Raju on behalf of the Center said the government was not strict on the issue. This issue was considered. However, it is not possible to give opportunities to those who have crossed the age limit. This is a matter of policy and prudence has been used in it. The court can issue this order if it wants. However, he said he would take the Supreme Court’s advice to the authorities.

The apex court was also informed that the maximum age for general category in civil service examination is 32 years, for OBCs is 35 years and for SC / STs is 37 years. However, the decision regarding the age limit was changed earlier. In such cases, once the age limit is exceeded, the candidates should be given a one-time exemption. In 1992, additional opportunities were granted, while in 2015 age leave was granted. SC / ST candidates will be disadvantaged without age exemption. Only 2236 candidates will benefit from age leave.
