Jharkhand HC to deliver verdict on Jan 25 on PIL seeking stay on JPSC main exam
According to the petitioner's advocate model answers to 8 prelims questions were wrong, but results were announced without making corrections
RANCHI: Jharkhand High Court on Tuesday concluded hearing arguments in the PIL seeking stay on the seventh Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC) main examination and reserved its verdict for January 25. The bench of Justice Rajesh Shankar completed the hearing in the writ petition filed by one Shekhar Suman seeking a stay on the main examination scheduled on January 28.
The petitioner's advocate Rajesh Kumar said that model answers to eight questions in the preliminary examination were wrong, but results were announced without making necessary corrections. He demanded that the preliminary examination results are cancelled and revised results declared following rectification.
JPSC's advocates Sanjay Piparwal and Prince Kumar Singh told the court that candidates' objections were sent to an expert committee and the results were declared following the panel's permission. They said that even if some answers were wrong, all the candidates were affected and not just one candidate, and if there was a mistake, the examiner (JPSC) gets the benefit of it, and not the examinee.
Recently, the Staff Selection Commission of India (SSC) has postponed the selection post examinations (phase 9) 2021 for those candidates who have been allotted examination centres in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Punjab, as these states will undergo state assembly elections. The examination will be rescheduled for the affected candidates.
