They will be placed as high-ranking officers in various central services such as the Indian Administrative Service, Indian Foreign Service and Indian Police Service.

The first stage comprised a written test of the candidates’ verbal and reasoning ability as well as knowledge and was held between 3rd December and 9th December.

“The candidates will be required to produce the original certificates in support of their claims pertaining to age, educational qualifications, community, physical handicap and other documents such as Questionnaire, Attestation Form and TA Form, etc. at the time of their Personality Test,” the UPSC said.

It has uploaded the formats for various certificates to be produced on its website, it added.
