The Delhi High Court lashed out at Center and UPSC for not declaring the actual number of vacancies in the All India civil services and added that selecting candidates for mains exam and subsequent interview, particularly for the disabled category amounts to “arbitrariness.” The court asked to explain the procedure of deciding the candidates for mains and interview.
A bench of Chief Justices D N Patel and Jyoti Singh told “When your vacancies are fluctuating, how many people will you call for the mains and interview? If you have power to call any number of candidates for mains and interviews without declaring the actual vacancies, it is known as arbitrariness.”
The bench also asked to explain how there was a difference of eight in the vacancies for disabled calculated by the petitioner organisation, Sambhavna, and the number advertised in the exam notification.
According to Sambhavna the number should be 32, whereas the exam notice indicates a figure of 24 vacancies for disabled category.
“You have to explain these two aspects,” the court said to the Centre and UPSC and listed the matter for hearing on January 29.
