The Jharkhand Public Service Commission on Thursday has released a short notice regarding the postponement of the Combined Civil Services Mains exam 2021 on its official website.

The next date of main competitive examination will be published later,” read the notification. Candidates can check the notification that is available on the Commission’s website www.jpsc.gov.in.
The development comes in the wake, of Jharkhand High Court’s hearing arguments in the PIL seeking stay on the seventh Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC) main examination and reserved its verdict for January 25.
As earlier reported by News18, the bench of Justice Rajesh Shankar completed the hearing in the writ petition filed by one Shekhar Suman seeking stay on main examination scheduled on January 28. The petitioner’s advocate Rajesh Kumar said that model answers of eight questions in the preliminary examination were wrong, but results were announced without making necessary corrections.
He demanded that the preliminary examination results be cancelled and revised results declared following rectification. JPSC’s advocates Sanjay Piparwal and Prince Kumar Singh told the court that candidates’ objections were sent to an expert committee and the results were declared following the panel’s permission, reported by News18 earlier.
They said that even if some answers were wrong, all the candidates were affected and not just one candidate, and if there was a mistake, the examiner (JPSC) gets the benefit of it, and not the examinee.
