A division bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice RS Endlaw refused to entertain the public interest litigation filed by lawyer Shahid Ali, saying the court was not going to stall the entire selection process of the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC).

The PIL also sought a direction to the UPSC that Arabic and Persian be included again in the list.
