SC adjourned plea seeking extra attempt for JEE candidates who exhausted last attempt in 2020


The court suggested that the principle that would be applied in the UPSC matter would be in this matter too


Due to the interrelation with UPSC extra chance judgment, the SC adjourned the petition seeking an extra attempt for aspirants who had exhausted their last attempt in JEE Advanced 2020 and had faced difficulties due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

After hearing the petition on Monday, a bench headed by Justice A.M. Khanwilkar directed the Counsel for the Petitioner to wait until the already reserved judgment of the UPSC matter comes.

The court suggested that the principle that would be applied in the UPSC matter would be in this matter too. Accordingly, the court directed advocate Mathew J. Nedumpara to wait for the UPSC's judgment.


Earlier on 9th February, after the hearing the submissions of Senior Advocate Shyam Divan, Pallav Sisodia, ASG SV Raju, and others, the SC had reserved the judgment on the petition which seeks an extra chance for those candidates who had exhausted their last attempts in the Civil Service Examination held in October 2020.


However Center had made it clear in the court that no relaxation shall be granted to those candidates who had appeared for CSE-2020 as their last attempt and are otherwise not age- barred from appearing in CSE - 2021.
