Madras HC cancels Group 1 main exam of TNPSC

Madras HC cancels Group 1 main exam of TNPSC

The Madras High Court cancelled the main exam for Group 1 of the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission (TNPSC), which was scheduled to be held on July 12 today. The decision was taken by the HC after the TNPSC failed to release the answer key for Phase 1 of the test, which had already been written by candidates.

The candidates had approached the HC to direct the TNPSC to release the answer key after it had failed to release them as per schedule. After receiving no response from TNPSC, the Madras HC ordered the cancellation of the main exam next month. 

What is judicial activism? This is one of the questions raised in the objective type test conducted recently by the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission (TNPSC) for selection of candidates for Group-I posts.

This Herculean task cannot be allowed to be thrown to the winds by filing a writ petition questioning the same, the Commission said in its counter filed in the Madras High Court on Monday. His interim prayer is to stay the April 3 publication and permit him to write the main exam. After resolving the issue, the Commission began its evaluation of the primary exam papers and the results were declared on April 3. While so, the writ petition was filed raising the issues. It was liable to be dismissed as the petitioner and other candidates were given marks for six out of 10 questions.

Wondering as to how a candidate appearing for the exam can answer the question in a short form, along with many other such questions, an irked Justice V Parthiban of the Madras High Court directed the TNPSC to submit its reply by Monday (June 17).

The judge was hearing a writ petition from S Vignesh of West Mambalam, who wrote the preliminary exam, but was not selected for the next exam, alleging utter confusion in setting the questions raised by the Commission.  Holding that such irregularities and anomalies could not be allowed to have crept in such an important exam, the judge posted the matter to June 17.
