MADURAI: The Tamil Nadu Uniformed Services Recruitment Board has been asked by the Madras high court to exercise caution in getting expert opinion while deciding examination answer keys.
Granting relief to two candidates — T S Abinesh and K Rajukumar — who had marked the correct answers in the written examination conducted on January 12, justice R Suresh Kumar said that the experts were unable to differentiate between ‘devaluation’ and ‘demonetization’ of currency.
The judge observed that the question in controversy was – ‘Indian rupee was devalued ——- times since 1947? and the options given were ‘(A) 3 (B) 4 (C) 2 (D) 1’. The judge noted that although in the preliminary answer key published by the board was ‘A – three times’ was declared as the correct answer, in the final answer key ‘B – four times’ was mentioned as the correct answer. Though the economics text book referred by the petitioners as well as the three experts reveals that the currency was devalued only thrice, the additional advocate general K Chellapandian submitted that the experts had arrived at the correct answer as four times by taking in to account the demonetization done by the Centre in 2016.
The judge said devaluation is a deliberate reduction of the rate at which domestic currency is exchanged for another currency while demonetisation is stripping a currency of its status as legal tender.

AIADMK will lead coalition, says EPS

Chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami hands over face masks to agricultural workers in Trichy on Friday.
TRICHY: Chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami on Friday put to rest any doubts regarding the party which will lead their alliance in the assembly election by saying it will only be the AIADMK. “No matter what the election is, AIADMK will lead the coalition in Tamil Nadu. Whether it was during M G Ramachandran or J Jayalalithaa’s period, assembly or parliamentary elections, the AIADMK had always led the alliance from the front. So, it will be the AIADMK that will lead the coalition this time too,” Palaniswami said while replying to a question at Thanjavur on whether the alliance for the 2021 assembly election will be led by AIADMK or BJP.
When reporters raised the same question at Tiruvarur earlier in the day, he had said that it would be decided once the assembly election was announced. He also added that not only the AIADMK, but no party was in a state to decide the alliance now. On NEET, he said, “To protect the students from the spread of the virus during this pandemic, I had already written a letter to the Prime Minister on July 8 asking him to cancel the NEET examination”.
Asked whether the government would take steps to prevent agricultural land being converted into housing sites despite the delta being declared a protected agriculture zone, the chief minister said, “Shelter is the ultimate need for everyone. People wish to reside within city limits. That should be fulfilled, but it should not go beyond a limit”. He also dispelled fears that the recently announced Mettur surplus water scheme to fill 100 lakes in Salem will render the delta dry as “only the excess water will be utilized for this scheme”. During the meeting, he explained the ongoing projects and establishment of infrastructure including two-way road projects.
