postponement of mains examination KCS judicial aspirants demand

Selection process subject to outcome of writ petition’

Srinagar: The aspirants of Civil Services judicial exam have demanded postponement of mains examination scheduled to start on March 23 “as the matter is sub-judice”. They said a writ petition filed in the court has created uncertainty over the fate of the examination and disturbed the preparation of aspirants. They said that the examination process has been challenged in Jammu wing of High Court and the court held that the selection process is subject to the outcome of the writ petition. According to them, the court sent a notice to JKPSC to file objection to the issues raised by the petitioners. “JKPSC has changed the rules of the examination in the middle of the game which is against the Supreme Court judgments.

JKPSC in its date sheet notification for main examination dated 29-12-2018 makes no mention of the question paper-cum answer books where as a separate notification dated 01.02.2019 whereby it has been decided that the question papercum answer books shall as far as practicable be used henceforth for the competitive examinations. The aspirants came to know of this change in the rule by the Instructions on the Admit cards issued in March,” aspirants told Kashmir Reader. “We have prepared in accordance with the earlier examination pattern. In the earlier pattern a candidate was not bound to write in a limited space and continuation answer sheets were provided. It is a natural principle that a new rule has a prospective effect and not a retrospective effect. Giving the rule retrospective effect is ultra-vire and is challenged in the court of law,” said an aspirant. KR
