              UPON hearing counsel the Court made the following
                         O R D E R

In pursuance of notice issued on 19.11.2014  to  the  Union  Public  Service
Commission  (in  short,  "UPSC"),  Ms.  Binu  Tamta,  learned  counsel,  has
appeared for the UPSC.
Heard the learned counsel appearing for all the parties at length.
Upon hearing the learned counsel for the parties, we find  that  in  all  91
candidates' answer sheets were in dispute.  Out of the said  91  candidates,
whose answer sheets were questioned,  it has been submitted at the Bar  that
15 candidates have  already  resigned,  while  3  candidates  did  not  join
service and  eight candidates have been  declared  successful  by  the  High
Court.  Thus, in all, the dispute is with regard to 65 answer sheets.
It is directed that the said answer sheets shall be  forwarded by the  Tamil
Nadu Public Service Commission (in short,  "TNPSC")  to  the  UPSC  for  the
following purpose :-
The UPSC shall forward the said answer sheets to an expert,  who  shall  not
re-examine those answer sheets but  shall  examine  whether  the  candidates
answering the questions had given any indication in  the  answer  sheets  to
reveal their identity.  The expert shall also note the fact  that  the  High
Court had examined the answer  sheets  and  had  cleared  8  answer  sheets,
wherein the candidates had not given any indication  with  regard  to  their
identity.  The expert shall forward his report to  the  UPSC  and  the  said
report shall be forwarded by the UPSC along with its comments  in  a  sealed
cover to this Court.
The expert shall look into the said 8  answer  sheets  for  the  purpose  of
ascertaining the basis upon which, the said eight answer sheets  were  found
flawless and follow the same criteria.
The TNPSC shall forward the 8 answer sheets which have been cleared  by  the
High Court of Madras to the UPSC.  Thus, two sets of answer sheets,  namely,
65 & 8 shall be put in two separate sealed covers and be  forwarded  to  the
UPSC along with all the instructions which had been given to the  candidates
who had undertaken the examination within two weeks from today.
The UPSC shall complete the aforesaid exercise within two  months  from  the
date of receipt of the aforesaid material by it.
List on 06.05.2015 at 02.00 PM.
Interim order, granted on 27.08.2014, shall continue.
