Delhi judicial services (DJS) exam results late yet again, timeline uncertain

The Delhi lower judicial service (DJS) exam is once again on a schedule delayed by several months after the release date for of final result in its June 2014 round remains uncertain.

The DJS, which according to a 2011 judgment of the Supreme Court must be conducted bi-annually, began its most recent examination rounds on 1 June 2014 after 80 district and sessions judge vacancies arose in Delhi.

The DJS has three rounds – the written preliminary test, the written main test and the viva voce. The preliminary round was organised on 1 June and the written main exam was organised on 10 and 11 October 2014, after the results of the preliminary round were announced on 8 July.

Since then the Delhi high court has not released results for the DJS 2014. The Delhi high court’s registrar general Vinod Goel was not reachable for comment by phone and messages.

Several DJS aspirants have told Legally India that the result of the exam, which is currently in the viva voce stage, was expected in a few days.

The DJS 2011, through which subordinate judge vacancies were last filled in Delhi, was executed in one-and-a-half years.

The lower judiciary recruited at 18.4 per cent of Delhi’s actual requirement in 2013, from the DJS 2011 merit list, leading to a theoretical figure of 586 vacancies for this year.
