UPPSC to conduct main exams as SC rules out re-evaluation


New Delhi, June 14: The Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission (UPPSC) can now conduct main exams for different positions as the Supreme Court on Thursday allowed its appeal challenging Allahabad High Court order directing re-evaluation of the answer-sheets.

The high court had ordered the re-evaluation of the answer sheets of the candidates on the basis of the correct answer to the questions. The Supreme Court order on Thursday effectively ruled out the re-evaluation as was ordered by the high court.

A vacation bench of Justice Uday Umesh Lalit and Justice Deepak Gupta allowed the UPPSC plea.

The preliminary examinations were held in 2017 and main exams were scheduled to be conducted on June 18.

Earlier, main exams were slated to be held on May 18 but because of the High Court order directing re-evaluation of the answer-sheet, the exams were re-scheduled for June 18.
