In the hearing, the Supreme Court had said that the situation of the epidemic was extraordinary and some of these candidates were serving in essential services. There are some real cases also. In this case, the petitioners are asking for a one-time exemption for every category. The Center should consider it, because this time the circumstances are extraordinary. The court does not want to order the government in this policy matter. The court had asked the central government to tell about it on Tuesday and the matter was heard again today.

On behalf of the Center, Additional Solicitor General (ASG) SV Raju said that the government is not rigid on this issue. This matter was considered. But it is not possible to give a chance to those who have crossed the age limit. This is a policy matter and discretion has been used on it. If the court wishes, it can issue this order. However, he had said that he would put the suggestion of the Supreme Court before the authority.

Apart from this, the Supreme Court was told that in the Civil Services Examination, the maximum age for general category is 32 years, for OBC 35 and for SC / ST, this age is 37 years. But even before that the decisions on the age limit were changed. In such a case, once the age limit is exceeded, the candidates should be given relaxation for one time. In 1992, an additional opportunity was given, while in 2015 the age relaxation was given. SC / ST candidates will be disadvantaged if age relaxation is not given. Only 2236 candidates will be benefited if age relaxation is given.
