Grant Extra Attempt To IAS Aspirants Who Exhausted Their Attempt Due To Covid: TN CM Tells PM

Chennai: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin wrote to Prime Minister Modi urging him to consider the demand of civil service aspirants to grant an extra attempt in view of the Covid-19 pandemic. The CM requested the PM to invoke Regulation 4 of the Indian Administrative Service Regulations, 1955 to provide an extra attempt with age relaxation to all aspirants who exhausted their last attempts due to the Covid pandemic.

In the letter, CM Stalin said, “I write this to bring to your kind notice a genuine request received from the aspirants for the Civil Service Examinations conducted by the Union Public Service Commission.”

He said, “Aspirants of various recruitment exams conducted by the Union Government including the Civil Service Examinations who had exhausted their last attempts due to Covid-19 pandemic, have been requesting for the past two years to extend the age limit for attending the examination as an one-time measure.”

“The Parliament Standing Committee has also recommended to consider sympathetically the demand of the Civil Service aspirants and to grant an extra attempt with corresponding age relaxation to all aspirants,” he said.

The CM also mentioned that more than 150 MPs of various parties supported the cause of the aspirants. He said, “This is a one-time relaxation and it will not cause any monetary burden to the exchequer but at the same time open a huge opportunity to thousands of youth who aspire to join the Civil Service.”

Therefore, the CM appealed to the PM to consider the demand and do the needful.
