Deferring PSC group 1 exams: HC not keen on interim order

HYDERABAD: The Telangana High Court on Thursday was not inclined to issue interim orders to postpone the TSPSC’s Group -1 preliminary exams, which are scheduled for June 11.

Justice Pulla Karthik heard the petition seeking to postpone the exams by two months. Approximately, 36 TSPSC Group-1 aspirants filed the petition saying the time gap was insufficient between Group 1, 2, 3 and 4 examinations, which are being conducted for the first time since the formation of Telangana state. The petitioners said the two-month postponement would help those appearing for all group exams.

Advocate General B.S. Prasad, appearing for the TSPSC, argued that all arrangements had been made for conducting the exams, in which over five lakh candidates are to appear. He further submitted that although the preliminary exams were conducted earlier, they are being re-conducted as the earlier exams have been cancelled after the question paper leak.

The court notified TSPSC and others to respond to the petition by June 20. However, the examination schedule is on June 11.
