The PSC had extended the validity of rank lists which expired between August 5, 2021 and August 3, 2021 to August 4, 2021. Some candidates took legal action stating that some rank lists were extended only for two months and a unified nature was not followed.The petitioners first approached the Kerala Administrative Tribunal (KAT) and the High Court Single Bench, both of which were rejected.

In case PSC is unable to report vacancies, it has the authority to extend the validity period from three months to one and a half years.
