The Supreme Court has called for a three-member high-powered committee consisting of Nandan Nilekani, a co-founder of tech giant Infosys, and renowned computer scientist, Vijay P Bhatkar, to suggest reforms for conducting competitive examinations fairly by government bodies.

The Supreme Court clarified that it would not stop the process of declaration of results this year, where lakhs of students appeared for the exams.

A bench of Justices S A Bobde and Deepak Gupta asked advocate Prashant Bhushan to suggest another name for the committee formed except for the people already been admitted.

Bhushan said he would suggest a name by next week.

The examination papers of the SSC CGL 2017 were allegedly leaked, leading to huge protests from job-seekers for several days.

On November 13, last year the apex court had asked the CBI to submit its final report regarding the probe into the alleged leak of papers of the 2017 Staff Selection Commission (SSC) examination.

The Court canceled the 2017 SSC examination and the results, which were to be declared in August, were not declared and decided to re-conduct the exam.

The Centre had termed the allegations of a paper leak as “bald and in general” and opposed the contention for scrapping the entire examinations.

It had refused to agree with the Centre’s contention that the examination held in February this year got “tainted” due to a technical snag and a fresh examination of one paper had been conducted thereafter.
