Earlier, a group of aspiring judicial officers had filed a plea in the Supreme Court seeking postponement of the recruitment exam due to the pandemic. They had alleged that these exams are also likely to cause a serious breach of public health. It is submitted that schools and colleges might become the breeding ground for the spread of the pandemic as thousands of candidates would gather from various places at their respective examination centres.
Meanwhile, BPSC has invited applications for the 66th combined competitive exam (CCE) for a total of 562 vacancies. The registration process is open till October 20.
