Delhi Judicial Service Preliminary Examination: Delhi HC dismisses plea to postpone Delhi Judicial Service Preliminary examination

The Delhi High Court recently declined a plea seeking the postponement of the Delhi Judicial Service Preliminary Examination slated for December 17. The plea cited a clash with a recruitment test by the Union Public Service Commission for various law-related posts. Acting Chief Justice Manmohan and Justice Mini Pushkarna rejected the plea, highlighting a prior dismissal of a similar petition by another division bench of the high court.

Vishal Yadav, the petitioner, approached the court urging a directive to postpone the Delhi Judicial Service Preliminary Examination (DJSPE-2023), citing its clash with the Combined Recruitment Test conducted by the UPSC for legal post appointments.

Advocate Tarun Narang, representing the petitioner, emphasized the significant stakes for numerous aspiring candidates’ careers, appealing for court intervention.

This move follows a prior dismissal on December 7, where another bench of the high court stated that DJSPE-2023 had already been rescheduled once and further deferment wasn’t feasible. The exam was initially postponed from December 10 to December 17 due to the All India Bar Examination coinciding on the former date.
