New Delhi: The Supreme Court Saturday rejected a plea for the postponement of the UPSC preliminary examination in the wake of a controversy over the aptitude test.
The bench headed by Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar dismissed a petition, and refused to postpone and reschedule the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examination scheduled for Aug 24.
Aspirants had last month protested demanding the scrapping of the Civil Services Aptitude Test (CSAT), terming it discriminatory towards those from Hindi background.
