Cool CSS exams in urdu

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court directed the Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC) on Tuesday to conduct Central Superior Services (CSS) examination in the Urdu language next year.

The Supreme Court had passed a similar judgement in 2015.

On Tuesday, Justice Atir Mahmood took up a petition filed by Advocate Saifur Rehman who has applied for appearing in the examination. The petition said that the FPSC advertisement announcing the examination did not mention which language the examination would be conducted in. The petitioner requested the court to order the commission to comply with the directive issued earlier by the Supreme Court.

The judge turned down his plea to ensure that this year’s examination was conducted in Urdu, citing paucity of time.

The counsel for the commission told the court that the FPSC was making arrangements to switch over from English to Urdu. A committee had been constituted to prepare recommendations in this regard and the matter had also been taken up with the Higher Education Commission, he said.

Justice Mahmood said that since this year’s examination would be held at the end of the current month, the court was not inclined to issue an order for immediate implementation of the SC judgement.

He dismissed the petition with the directive to the FPSC to ensure that the examination in 2018 was held in accordance with the dictum laid down by the apex court.
