Law Minister DV Sadananda Gowda has written a letter to the Delhi high court chief justice on 18 June after having received allegations of “corruption, favouritism and nepotism” in the long-controversial Delhi Judicial Services (DJS) exam, reported the Indian Express’ Utkarsh Anand.

As reported by Legally India on 5 May, only 15 out of 659 candidates or 2 per cent passed the exam this year.

Gowda noted that allegedly Delhi high court judges’ children were very successful in the exam - two out of the 15 who passed - while the majority of other candidates failed spectacularly, as the “the Department of Justice has received many grievances alleging corruption, favouritism and nepotism in the recently concluded Delhi Judicial Services Examination, 2014”.

A petition on change.org signed by 310 supporters and aggrieved students complained that the the DJS should recruit more than just 15 candidates, as it still had 570 vacancies remaining that were unfilled.
