The Madras High Court on Wednesday directed the Secretary of the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission (TNPSC) to publish all the marks of the candidates who appeared for the Group II Combined Subordinate Services Exams - I held on November 4, 2012.

Justice S Nagamuthu, after hearing the writ petition of A Gopikrishnan, directed the TNPSC to publish the results to convey to the public that the Commission was fair in its approach.

“As the well-known saying ‘Ceaser’s wife must be above suspicion’ goes, in order to inform the general public that TNPSC has been fair in its approach, it ought to have published the marks before calling the candidates for the interview,” the Judge observed.

Gopikrishnan, in his petition, said he had sought the exact marks secured by him in the written examination and that the TNPSC did not oblige. The petitioner alleged that as per the tentative answer key, he should have secured 210 out of 300 marks. He claimed he was not called for the interview though some of the candidates who would have secured less marks were called. The judge observed that where transparency was the hallmark of fairness on the part of the authorities concerned, there could be no justification in declining to publish the marks until the final results were published.
