The Patwari Main Examination was earlier scheduled to be conducted on July 10. However, as per a Time of India Report, Supreme Court of India has ordered a stay on the exam when discrepancies were brought forth regarding the cut off. It was brought forth that the cut off for the reserved OBC category was set higher than that of the general category candidates. As such, the reserved category candidates had filed a petition – challenging the admission of general category students with less marks against the OBC category students with more marks. Following the same, the apex court had stayed the earlier examination. The exam date has now been finally released and the Main Exam is scheduled to be conducted on Sunday, Dec. 24. The Admit Cards would be available online within this week.
