- The Telangana High Court has instructed the TSPSC and the state government to make a decision, ideally before November 20, on the reduction of minimum qualifying marks for Group-4 examinations for ex-servicemen.
- The decision aligns with the recommendation of the Director of the Sainik Welfare Board.
- The court stressed that the recruitment of ex-servicemen should only proceed after a decision has been reached regarding the minimum qualifying marks.
- The directive follows a petition by a group of ex-servicemen who urged the TSPSC to set the minimum qualifying marks at 30 percent of the total marks, in line with candidates from Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe, and physically handicapped communities.
- The Director of the Sainik Welfare Board had written to both the TSPSC and the government to consider this request, but no decision had been made thus far.
