MPSC Exam Date 2021: Maharashtra Public Service Commission (MPSC) exams will be held on 21st March. The exams were earlier scheduled to be conducted on 14th March but were postponed due to the rising number of Coronavirus cases in the state, MPSC said today.

Earlier on Thursday, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had assured students that a new date for the MPSC preliminary exam will be announced today. The statement from CM Thackeray had come in view of the protests from students and political parties against the government for canceling the MPSC exam.

Even before the final announcement of the final exam date it was being expected that the exam would be scheduled on March 21 because the government competitive exams are conducted usually on Sundays and after March 14 the next Sunday falls on March 21 only. Few senior officials had also  hinted to the Indian Express that the exam would be held on March 21.

Assuring the students that the exam was postponed only for a few days and not months, the CM assured that the exam will be conducted within eight days of March 14, the earlier scheduled date for the exam. Thackeray had further said that he had  instructed the Chief Secretary of the state along with other top officials to clear the air about the MPSC exam and issue a fresh date within eight days from March 14. Consequently, the date was announced today and now the exam will be held on March 21.

With many students airing doubts about the modified age criteria, CM Thackeray had also assured students that the age criteria won’t pose any hurdle to them for appearing in the exam on the new date.

Taking precautions in view of the rising number of Covid-19 cases, CM Thackeray has also instructed the officials, who are going to convene the preliminary exam, to get tested for Covid-19 and submit their negative reports before getting involved in the exam process. He also announced that all staff members will be vaccinated prior to the exam so that there is no possibility of infection spreading from staff members to the students.
