Review petition

Dear Sir,

In 2011 december Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission released a notification for Group - 1 services exam. I am an aspirant of group - 1 services of Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission(APPSC). In May - 2011, APPSC conducted preliminary exmination (objective in nature)  for group-1 services exam in which a total of 16000 members filtered for Mains exam out of 1,80,000 of total aspirants appeared for the exam.

After preliminary filteration some candidates went to APAT saying that there are 13 wrong answers in the preliminary examination key published by Appsc. When it went to APPSC notice, it appointed an expert commitee to revise the key objections filed by those aspirants. After careful analysis Expert commitee advised appsc to correct 7 answers out of 13 mentioned by those aspirants. Appsc accepted the suggestions made by expert commitee and altered the Mains selection list(Preliminary cleared aspirants list) as per the new key.

With this revised new list AP Public service commission went ahead and conducted Mains (Descripttive) exam for those 16000(Approximately) and shortlisted 606 candidates for interview. In February and March 2013 APPSC conducted interviews for those 606 candidates and ready to release the final merit list for the 314 posts.

In the mean time the aspirants who were filed the petition earlier went to Andhra Pradesh Administrative Tribunal ( APAT ) and asked it to direct APPSC to revise the remaining 6 bits (13 - 7 mentioned above) also and stop the process. But APAT refused to direct Appsc to stop the process. Instead APAT directed APPSC to continue the selection process but should not release final merit list until the final judgement.

After some hearings APAT ordered APPSC to appoint another expert commitee to look into the 6bits. After indepth anlysis The expert commitee advised Appsc to remove 2 bits to avoid ambiguity as they have more than one correct answers and no objections for 4bits.

But the aspirants went to High court saying that they cant believe the expert commitee report as it was appointed by APPSC itself. Then highcourt ordered UPSC to look into this matter and submit its report within one month.

As they questioned the genunity of Appsc and its expert commitee and delaying the selection process, Appsc filed Special Leave Petition in Supreme Court to vacate the stay order given by AP High Court.

After careful analysis The Honerable Supreme court Bench comprised of Honerable Justices Mr. Chalameswar Sir and Mr. Gokale Sir announced the judgement by ordering APPSC to delete all the six bits which are ambigious and reprepare the mains selection list and reconduct the entire mains exam once again to all 16000aspirants.

But the fact is, even after repreparing the list after deleting the 6 bits also....99% of the candidates who wrote earlier will be also in the new list and have to write Mains exam (Total of 6 discripttive papers) once again.

[As I am one of the 606 candidates who sucussfully cleared Preliminary - Mains - Interview stages.....i know how hard it is to prepare for these stages. If remains conducted all of us loose almost 2 years of time which was dedicated for this preparation and confidence also. In the entire process we did not have neither a role nor did a mistake. Why because the entire selection process is under the control of APPSC. But still we were the loosers and has to write the exam once again and nothing will happen to those professor who prepared the wrong key and Appsc officials who conducted the exams based on such a key]

As per some legal experts APPSC did some blunders and missed some key points in filing its counter.

They are......

1).  Expert comittee suggested only 2 bits out of 6 are ambigious and can be deleated. If Appsc deletes those only 3 members out of 16000 will be effected.

2). If it deletes all the 6 bits then a total of 200-300 candidates will be effected out of 16000 candidates who already wrote mains exam.

3). Apart from these technicalities, the present AP law and order situation does not permit any state level exam conduction (AP TET, DSC, ALL University entrance Tests...etc were cancelled already) because of ANDHRA - Telamgana Bifurcation issue. So APPSC cannot conduct Re Mains to all the candidates.

respected Sirs,

My questions are....

1). Can we file a review petition again in SC by taking all this issues to Honerable Justice's Mr. Chalameswar sir and Mr. Gokale sirs....

2). is there any chance to accept this review petition on the above said grounds.....

3). If accepted, in which way can we argue to avoid remains as there is no single mistake on our part....

 4). If possible please guess the possible out come judgement ......

Thank you sirs...please give your valuable advice as early as possible....
