The court gave this decision while hearing the SSC case of 2017. The committee constituted by the court includes former Infosys Chief Nandan Nilekani and computer scientist Vijay Bhatkar. With this, the Supreme Court has allowed the Center to declare the result and proceed to recruit, but any recruitment will be subject to the final result of the case.

Results of SSC, CGL and CHSL will be announced soon. The Supreme Court quashed its order on 31 August 2018.

Significantly, during the Combined Graduate Level Examination Test held in February 2017, a number of irregularities were found. After the examination, the students had performed extensively, complaining of leakage of paper and copying during the examination. The students demanded that the case be investigated by the CBI under the supervision of the Supreme Court.

Seeing the performance of the students, the Supreme Court heard the case and the Central Government handed over the entire case to the CBI. After investigating the case, the CBI had registered an FIR against 17 people in the paper leak case. Many SSC employees were also among those arrested. Considering the seriousness of the case, the Supreme Court had stayed the outcome of Combined Graduate Level Examination 2017 and Combined Senior Secondary Level Examination 2017 during the hearing in August.
