English is not necessary for IAS examination

 

New Delhi: The government has given consent and made English optional for the IAS examination and said aspirants can attempt this exam in regional language.

Under schedule 8, a candidate is permitted to use one regional language or English for writing the exam, said V. Narayanasamy, Minister of state for Personnel and Training, reading a statement in the Lok Sabha.

The system made English compulsory before 5 march for taking the civil services 2013 main examination.

This was followed by an uproar in the Lok Sabha and the minister assured on 15 March that it would look into the matter.

Narayanasamy said, The government has reviewed the raised concerns.

He also assured that the essay paper of 100 marks in English will be dropped. However, 300 marks two qualifying papers in any modern Indian language and English shall be restored, assured the minister.

The statement said, the essay paper will be of 250 marks such that the candidate can write in any medium of his choice.

The Minister said this decision was taken due to the views expressed by MPs in Parliament, who represented notification by different agencies. In reviewing the raised concerns, Narayanasamy said, the UPSC notification was in abeyance with the Government after the houses of parliament witnessed adjournments and uproar, thereby terming it as unconstitutional.

Earlier, the IAS exams were conducted only in English and the rural students found it very difficult to get through mainly because of poor strength in English. Their knowledge of English was very weak and so the parliament houses put forth a proposal to give them the opportunity to write IAS exams in any of their choice of languages.

In this regard, the 300 marks each paper in Indian language and English shall be restored and the essay paper will be of 250 marks, such that any candidate can write in his choice of language.
