Question

One of the demands of the Indian National Congress was that Civil Service Examinations be held in India as well as in England. What was their reason for this demand?
  1. They wanted Indians to get the opportunity to go to England.
  2. They wanted uniform administration in England and India.
  3. They wanted more Indians to be able to take the exams.
  4. They wanted British officials to return to England to take the exams.


Solution

The correct option is C They wanted more Indians to be able to take the exams.
The Civil Service Examinations were one possible way for Indians to be represented in their administration. Till the late 19th century, these exams were conducted only in England. Not many Indians could afford to go to England to appear for these exams, hence they were unable to secure a position in government services. This is why the INC demanded that these exams be held in India as well.
