UPSC told the Supreme Court that it is not possible to defer the Civil Services Preliminary examination any further. Also, UPSC stated that it has received requests and e-mails from students not to postpone the examination any further.

Supreme Court dismisses the plea seeking for the postponement of the Civil Service Prelims examination. However, it has provided directions to the Centre to consider concessions for those aspirants who are on their last attempt.

It has been informed by the UPSC to the Supreme Court that 4 October date for conducting the Civil Services preliminary exam 2020 cannot be deferred on account of COVID-19, it would lead to the delaying of next year’s prelims which is scheduled for 27 June, 2021.

20 UPSC aspirants filed a plea against conducting of the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination on 4  October. During the hearing process, Naresh Kaushik an advocate appearing for the UPSC submitted before the bench that it is completely impossible to postpone the exam.

The petitioners have asked to postpone the exam by 2 or 3 months in view of the flood situation in several states and the COVID-19 crisis that the country is facing currently.

It has been stated by the commission that it would not be in a position to declare the results of 2020 exam without delaying the already scheduled 2021 prelims.

It has also informed the Supreme Court that Right to Equality can only be maintained if the students who are desirous of appearing in the CSE 2020 exams on 4 October and are allowed to take the exam like previous years examinations.

31 May was scheduled for the UPSC Prelims exam and due to the situation of COVID-19 the date was decided as 4 October for CSE Prelims exam.

The affidavit says that around 67,717 candidates have availed the option of altering their choice of exam centres.

Also, the commission has submitted that all the arrangements for the exam have been completed and the total cost incurred is of Rs 50.39 crores from public exchequer fund to ensure that the exam is conducted on 4 October.

UPSC also highlighted its successful track record of holding exams this year of National Defense Academy and Naval Academy examination on 6 September and was conducted smoothly.

Also, it stated that students appearing in NDA exam are 12th passed and for 4 October, students those will appear are graduates at least. Therefore, “more responsible behaviour and care” is expected from such students.

Naresh Kaushik an advocate had earlier informed about appearing for UPSC to the Bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar, BR Gavai and Krishna Murari that it was not “possible” to defer the prelims beyond October 4 as “it would hamper the objectives of the exam catering to the four arms of the government.”

Advocate Alakh Alok Srivastava filed a petition and urges the Court to quash the revised calendar issued by the UPSC for the postponement of the exam by two or three months till the COVID-19 pandemic has subsided.

On 6 June, the UPSC decided to conduct the exam on 4 October. and UPSC had given an extra chance to the candidates to change their address for preference for the exam centre. While filling the application form, usually candidates are asked to give their preference for the exam centres. But due to COVID-19 and to make situation convenient for the candidates to appear for the exam, the UPSC had opened the application form link and gave one more chance to the candidates to change their examination centres. The main exam is scheduled on 8 January 2021 for the candidates who will qualify the preliminary exam.

संघ लोक सेवा आयोग एक स्वतंत्र संवैधानिक निकाय है क्योंकि यह सीधे संविधान द्वारा बनाया गया है और भारत में केंद्रीय भर्ती एजेंसी है।

स्वतंत्रता, शक्तियों और कार्यों के साथ सदस्यों की रचना, नियुक्ति और हटाने से संबंधित प्रावधान संविधान में भाग XIV में अनुच्छेद 315 से 323 तक विस्तृत हैं। भारतीय संविधान का अनुच्छेद 315 के अनुसार संघों व राज्यों के लिए प्रतियोगी परीक्षाओं के आधार पर लोक सेवकों की नियुक्ति करता है।

UPSC के पहले अध्यक्ष सर रोस बार्कर (Sir Ross Barker) थे। अक्टूबर 1926 में, वह कार्यालय में शामिल हुए और अगस्त 1932 तक इस पद पर रहे। UPSC में एक अध्यक्ष और भारत के राष्ट्रपति द्वारा नियुक्त अन्य सदस्य शामिल होते हैं। वे छह वर्ष या 65 वर्ष की आयु पाने तक, जो भी पहले हो, कार्यरत रहते हैं|

संविधान UPSC को भारत में ‘वॉच-डॉग ऑफ मेरिट सिस्टम’ के रूप में देखता है। यह ग्रुप ए और ग्रुप बी की अखिल भारतीय सेवाओं और केंद्रीय सेवाओं में कर्मियों की नियुक्ति के लिए सरकार को अपनी सिफ़ारिश भेजता है| यह सरकार को सलाह भी देता है, पदोन्नति और अनुशासनात्मक मामलों पर।लेकिन सरकार के लिए बाध्यकारी नहीं होता है|
नोट: यह सेवाओं के वर्गीकरण, प्रशिक्षण, सेवा शर्तों, कैडर प्रबंधन प्रशिक्षण आदि से संबंधित नहीं है | UPSC का संबंध परीक्षा प्रक्रिया से है। इन मामलों को कार्मिक और प्रशिक्षण विभाग द्वारा नियंत्रित किया जाता है जो कार्मिक, लोक शिकायत और पेंशन मंत्रालय के अधीन है।

इसलिए हम कह सकते हैं कि UPSC केवल एक केंद्रीय भर्ती एजेंसी है, जबकि कार्मिक और प्रशिक्षण विभाग भारत में केंद्रीय कार्मिक एजेंसी है।

IAS Prelims Mock-Test 2020 – Set 5, 28 August

Union Public Service Commission is an independent constitutional body as it is directly created by the Constitution and is the central recruiting agency in India.

The provisions related to composition, appointment and removal of members with the independence, powers and functions are elaborated in the Constitution from Article 315 to 323 in Part XIV.

The first Chairman of the UPSC was Sir Ross Barker. In October 1926, he joined the office and holds the post till August 1932. The UPSC consists of the Chairman and therefore the members appointed by the President of India. They hold office for a term of six years or till the age of 65 years.

The constitution visualises the UPSC as the ‘watch-dog of merit system’ in India. It is concerned with the recruitment to the all-India services and central services of group A and group B. It also advises government, when consulted, on promotion and disciplinary matters.

Note: It is not concerned with the classification of services, pays and service conditions, cadre management training and so on. These matters are handled by the Department of Personnel and Training that is one of the three departments of the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions.

Therefore we can say that UPSC is only a central recruiting agency whereas the Department of Personnel and Training is the central personnel agency in India.
