UPSC has published the roll numbers on the official website. The result of one candidate has been withheld. For any information regarding the examination/recruitment, the candidates must visit the official website.

It is the first time that the final results have been declared within four days of the closing date for the interviews.

The civil services preliminary examination was conducted on August 24 last year at 2,137 venues in 59 centres across the country. The examination is conducted annually by the UPSC to select officers for Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and Indian Police Service (IPS) among others. The examination is conducted in three stages-preliminary, mains and interviews.

Earlier in April this year, UPSC Chairman Deepak Gupta had mooted a proposal for structural changes in the number of papers to be made part of the selection process, even as he favoured revolving a “foolproof” online system of examinations.
