New Delhi: In a important development, the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) on Monday informed the Supreme Court that it is impossible to defer the Civil Services Preliminary 2020 as all logistical arrangements have already been made.
A 3-judge bench headed by Justice AM Khanwilkar, however, asked UPSC to file this stand in affidavit along with the details of arrangements made. The matter will be heard on Wednesday.
The top court was hearing a plea filed by some UPSC civil services aspirants seeking the postponement of the preliminary examination 2020 amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
The UPSC civil services examination 2020 is scheduled for October 4.
