The UPSC has also informed that it publishes the results in reasonable timeframe in pursuit of adherence to its Annual Calendar of Examinations which is notified well in advance. The UPSC has further informed that the disclosure of answer sheets is exempted vide Hon’ble Supreme Court’s judgement dated 20.02.2018 in CA Nos. 6159-6162 of 2013 and 5924/2013.
