New Delhi: Advocate Alakh Alok Srivastava has written a letter to the Chairman Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), requesting a postponement of the Civil Services (Prelims) exams of this year. He is representing a group of Civil Services Aspirants. The exam is scheduled to be held on October 4.

In his letter he has said that the country is suffering from an extremely contagious virus pandemic of COVID-19 which has already infected about 29 lakh people across India and is likely to exponentially spread in the upcoming months. As per the ICMR, India is likely to witness a COVID-19 peak in the month of November, 2020. Thus, the upcoming month may witness a dangerous spread of this pandemic. Due to this, the civil services aspirants are under huge mental stress and anxiety.

The exam was previously scheduled to be held in May 2020, but was deferred to October 2020 due to this Coronavirus pandemic, he said.
