Himachal Pradesh high court passed an order in favour of the petitions filed against cancellation and change of answers to certain questions by the state public service commission for the HAS preliminary exams.
Division Bench comprised of chief justice Kurian Joseph and justice Dharam Chand Chaudhary. Preliminary exams were held on September 4 last year and the result of which was declared on December 15.
The petitioners whose answers did not match the revised answer key would also be awarded marks for the questions as per original answer key.
The court however made it clear that the exercise shall be limited only to the petitioners who have approached the Court and not to all the candidates appeared for the preliminary exams.
The court also directed that the petitioners who have qualified for the mains exams in this exercise be allotted roll numbers before March 8.
The mains exams are to be held from March 10 to 30.
