Update – 09/07/2020 – RAS 2018 Mains results have been declared
01/July 2020: As per recent news in Patrika & Times of India, on 30th June 2020, the Rajasthan High Court lifted the stay on RAS 2018 Mains Result. RPSC can now go ahead with declaring the results of RAS Mains examinations 2018, for which written exams were conducted in June 2019.
As per the Chairman of RPSC, Shri Deepak Upreti, the commission has already completed the checking of mains answer copies. Now RPSC will release the result after technical investigation and review of the order. And according to the rules, the candidates equal to three times the number of the posts will be declared eligible for interview. The results are expected to be declared in this week.
The High Court had stayed the release of the results of the RAS Mains 2018 examination on December 1, 2018 while hearing the petitions filed by Surgyan Singh and others. The cut-off of general category was 76.06% and of OBC was 99.33% when the results of preliminary examination for 1,080 posts of RAS and subordinate service were announced. Despite the cut-off percentage of OBC was higher than general, the RPSC did not allow the petitioners from appearing in the Main examination citing a 15-time cap of candidates in each category. But when challenged in the high court, the court allowed the petitioners to appear in the Main examination but restrained the RPSC from declaring the results.
The single bench of Justice Ashok Gaur has given the order after hearing the arguments on the application submitted by the Rajasthan government and the RPSC. The HC order has now cleared the way for recruitment of RAS officers.
On May 20, the Rajasthan government amended the rules due to the stay in declaring the Main examination results of RAS recruitment 2018. Till now, reserved candidates have been considered eligible to call for the Main examination 15 times of the estimated vacant posts in each of the category. But as per the amendment instead of category wise total vacancies, 15 times the total number of estimated number of vacancies to be filled in the year, the candidates will be considered eligible to appear in the main examination.
