The Supreme Court on Wednesday told the petitioners seeking postponement of civil services examination to be “polite and persuasive” if they expect relief from the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC).
The comments were made by the Supreme Court bench after the lawyers of the petitioners said that the UPSC is “bent upon to hold exams.
“They are duty bound to hold exam. You have to be polite and persuasive if you expect some relief from UPSC,” the court said.
The petitioners argued that the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) is unprecedented and extraordinary situation as they pleaded that the exams should be deferred.
The court then said that the UPSC has asked the state authorities to arrage for the transport of candidates.
