Gujarati Students Upset By UPSC Decision
We all are aware of the new changes in UPSC Civil Service Examination. The decision was finalized on Tuesday based on the new pattern and further changes in other Languages.


As a result of this, thousands of Gujarati students taking up their UPSC civil service examination are upset with the decision. They believe that this changes shall affect their chances of making it to the final list. And moreover, this was mainly due to the weightage of Gujarati language, that as many as 55 candidates could clear the exams in the last five years.

This move will further close down the language based concessions offered by the UPSC to all vernacular language including Gujarati.

The Gujarati students strongly feel that this decision is a violation of their fundamental right of equality and expression. According to the new exam pattern, if an aspirant's medium of instruction at Graduation level is not Gujarati, then he or she shall not be allowed to write exams in Gujarati language.

According to the sources, Among the major changes to be introduced this year are an English language paper, the score of which will be taken into account in the final selection for top jobs. Earlier, candidates had to qualify in English and another language paper. But, the score in these two language papers was counted for the short-listing . Another restrictive provision is that a Gujarati candidate cannot opt for Gujarati literature as optional subject, if the candidate has not graduated in it.
