The Delhi High Court on Monday stayed the single-judge order directing the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) to make public marks obtained by the candidates in the Civil Services preliminary examinations 2006.

A Division of Bench of Chief Justice MK Sharma and Justice Sanjeev Khanna put a stay till July 30 on the order passed by the single-Judge last month.

Directing the UPSC to place all the original records in a sealed cover before it, the court issued notices to all 25 candidates, who had earlier approached the Central Information Commission seeking disclosure of the cut off marks in the examination.

The UPSC had challenged the order of Justice BD Ahmed passed on April 17, who had upheld the order of the CIC, directing the apex recruitment body to reveal the marks.

The Court had also rejected the contention of the Government body that the scaling system followed by it was very confidential and it was their intellectual property which could not be revealed to anybody.
