New Delhi: The Centre will need three-four days to study the Arvind Verma report on Union Public Service Commission Civil Services Preliminary Examination and reach a conclusion soon. Government sources say that the final decision on the controversy surrounding UPSC Civil Services Aptitude Test (CSAT) will be taken by next week.

MoS, Personnel, Jitendra Singh made a statement in Parliament after JD(U) MP Sharad Yadav raised the issue in Rajya Sabha. "We have received the report, we will study it, it's a sensitive matter, we will take into consideration all members' feelings and we will submit the report," Singh told the House.

Sharad Yadav cornered the Centre, saying, "Government had sought 7 days.. that time is. Entire country is waiting to know the solution proposed by government. There is discontent.. why is he adding to it."

The Upper House witnessed repeated adjournments during the Question Hour over the UPSC row.

Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav opposed the new format of Civil Services Aptitude Test (CSAT). "We oppose CSAT. We want the exams to be conducted in the way it was earlier," he said.

On Thursday, the Arvind Verma committee, which was setup to study if changes are required in the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination pattern, submitted its report to the government.

Civil services aspirants have been protesting against the CSAT and allege that the paper is biased against students from rural, Hindi and regional language and humanities background.

Several MPs, too, have raise the matter in Parliament and the Narendra Modi government has assured the House that a solution would be found soon.
