Firstly the ICAI initiate the examination on a larger scale which strictly follows the government’s approved Standard Operating Procedure (SOPs) by the numerous ministry and the several states or union territories in the country, so to make sure that the important safety protocols are in the place of that maintains distance from spreading the Covid-19 in the exam hall.
Secondly, under Articles 14, 19 and 21 of the Constitution of India, other effective measures might be taken to overcome the other compensation and the difficulties which obstruct the protection of the fundamental rights given to the applicants as well as same-resided candidates.
Hence the applicant submits that it is important that the Government of India, as well as the ICAI, should take the mandatory steps with effective precautions as the forthcoming exams are not conducted in 1 day.
