In a related development, the Supreme Court has dismissed the plea seeking extra attempt in the civil services exam for those who have exhausted their last attempt in 2020. On February 5, the Centre had agreed to give an extra chance as a one-time relaxation to those civil service aspirants, who had exhausted their last attempt in the 2020 exam and are otherwise not age-barred.
The Centre had said then that it is against granting one-time relaxation on age limit to UPSC civil service aspirants as it would be discriminatory to other candidates.
The civil services (preliminary) exam was scheduled for May 31 last year and was eventually held on October 4, after the UPSC told the top court the exams could not be postponed any longer. Candidates who have exhausted their last attempt in the exam have been given an additional chance.
To be eligible to sit in the Civil Services exam a candidate must be between 21-32 years of age. The minimum educational qualification required for this exam is graduation.
Details of the Civil Services exam 2021 is expected to be released soon.
