New Delhi, July 15, 2012
The Delhi High Court has directed Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) to disclose the marks obtained by candidates in the civil services preliminary examination 2010. A bench of Acting Chief Justice A K Sikri and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw gave the ruling, dismissing UPSC’s appeal against a single judge order to disclose the marks, albeit only of successful candidates in the 2010 preliminary exam.
The bench directed for disclosure of marks of all candidates including unsuccessful ones. The bench asked UPSC to make public the marks within eight weeks, saying, “An examinee is entitled to satisfy himself/ herself as to the fairness and transparency of the examination and the selection procedure and to maintain such fairness and transparency disclosure of raw marks, cut-off marks and the scaling method adopted is a must.
