The Supreme Court has today decided that in every exam including UPSC, students with disabilities should get a scrub. Along with this, the court also said that the Central Government will have to make laws and rules for this in three months. Some disabled students cannot write the answers themselves in the exam. Such students get a scribe for writing answers.
Scribe’s job is to write only the answer given by the disabled student. In the UPSC exam, the disabled students did not get the facility of scribe. It was challenged in the Supreme Court. Today, the Supreme Court ruled that in every exam, disabled students should get a scrub.
Let us tell you that earlier in the Civil Services Examination, the candidates who were unable to take the exam due to coronavirus pandemic last year had filed a petition, in which a demand was given for an extra attachment. At first the government was not ready to be given additional opportunity on the petition, but later agreed to be given another chance. But this opportunity will not be given to those students whose maximum age limit to appear in the examination has passed.
According to the calendar released by UPSC, the Civil Services Preliminary Examination is scheduled to be held on 27 June. However, the notification of UPSC Civil Services Preliminary Examination was going to be released on February 10, 2021, but it was not released due to any reason. The Commission has said that a notification will be issued soon.
