The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) is all set to conduct the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination-2019 on June 2, 2019 (Sunday) across the country. The Commission has stated that the e-Admit Cards for the admitted candidates have been uploaded on its website and can be downloaded from there. The candidates will have to produce the printout of their e-Admit Card at the allotted Venue for appearing at the Examination.

Here are some other important information for the candidates appearing for the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination-2019:

(a) The candidates are required to carry along the (original) Photo ID Card, whose number is mentioned in the e-Admit Card, for appearing at each Session of the Examination.

(b) The candidates, whose photograph is not clear/visible in the e-Admit Card or his/her signature appears in place of the photograph, are required to carry with them two photographs (one for each session).
