A Bench comprising Justice M.B. Shah and Justice A.R. Lakshmanan rejected the bail plea.
Kelkar, described as a ``middleman'' in the scam, was arrested on June 19 last year and has been in jail ever since.
Acting as a conduit between candidates and the MPSC members, Kelkar is said to have collected huge amounts of money for recruitment of police sub-inspectors, secretariat assistants and sales tax inspectors.
In the multi-crore scam, duplicate sheets with correct answers replaced original answer sheets of candidates who paid the bribe.
The investigating agency has already filed two charge-sheets and one supplementary charge-sheet in the city civil and sessions court against 20 of the 21 people arrested in the case so far.
The probe followed a complaint by the MPSC secretary, Seema Dhamdhere on June 20 last year.
