Mumbai: The Maharashtra Public Service Commission (MPSC) Board has postponed the civil judge (lower level) and judicial magistrate first class (JMFC) exams from August 18 to September 1.

In the wake of the flood situation in Western Maharashtra, a high court lawyer had sent an email to governor Ch. Vidyasagar Rao and chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, requesting that they postpone the exam.

He cited the practical difficulties of students who wished to take the examination.

Earlier this week, the deputy secretary of the MPSC issued a circular stating, “Due to heavy downpour and the flood situations in many parts of Maharashtra, exams which are taken by the MPSC have postponed to Sunday, September 1.”

The circular also stated, “Amended hall tickets will be made available on the MPSC website a few days before the exams”.

Last week, Vivek Thackeray, a high court lawyer in an email to the governor and chief minister said, “Due to flooding in western Maharashtra, interested and capable candidates can not sit for the examination.” He also stated that around 2,047 students were expected to sit for the exam.

In his email, Mr Thackeray had stated that for the past 15 days, the Konkan, Western Mahara-shtra and Khandesh region of Maharashtra was seeing heavy showers. Electricity, transportation, market and other important places had stopped due to floods.
