Granting interim relief to visually impaired candidates of the all-India level Lower Division Clerk exam, the Delhi High Court has stayed the announcement of the results.
Justice Suresh Kumar Kait gave the decision after candidates approached the court seeking a stay on the results and re-examination of the Hindi typing test. The court also directed the Centre and Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS), which conducted the test on November 13, to submit their replies. The petitioner, a visually impaired candidate, alleged that there should have been two types of keyboards as per a notification by the authorities conducting the exam but only one keyboard (InScript ) was available on November 13. As a result, candidates who had practised on Remington CBI keyboards did not give the exam.
The petition, filed through advocate Ganesh Chand Sharma, said the candidates had written hundred of emails to KVS but did not receive a satisfactory reply.
