Methodology of Moderation and Scaling (For Optional Subjects Only)

Hon’ble Central Administrative Tribunal, Principal Bench, New Delhi, in its order dated 18th July, 2008 in OA No. 1389/2007 with OA No. 1747/2007 filed by Dr. Bikram Singh Gill and Shri Neeraj Kansal & Others, has observed as below:-

“The issues regarding the methodology of moderation and scaling have already been considered by the Apex Court, the Honorable Delhi High Court and this Tribunal. In view of the authoritative pronouncements by the Apex Court, there is no need for us now to go into this question. In the given circumstances, this is probably the most unexceptional method available to bring about as much objectivity as possible in the system of examination. For Civil Services, it seems that the method being followed by the UPSC has served well and without discrimination. We are convinced that it would serve no purpose for the Tribunal to peruse the answer sheets, as prayed for and come to any conclusion. It is the work for the experts, which should best be left to them. We can sympathize and empathize with the Applicants but cannot give them relief because of the reasons which have been mentioned above.”
