Gourab Agarwal, a rank holder from Odisha in the civil services examinations conducted by the UPSC, shares his success mantra
According to a list released by the Kerala State Civil Services Academy, 25 candidates from the state cleared the examination of whom three figured in the top 100.
The last date for printing of completely submitted online application is up to 23:59 hrs on 15.04.2022
In a counter affidavit, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said: "The matter has been considered and it has not been found feasible to change the existing provisions regarding number of attempts and age-limit in respect of CSE (Civil Services exam).
The commission said the matter of compensatory/extra attempt had been decided by the top court, against the backdrop of hardships faced by the aspirants due to the pandemic, but the same was not granted.
The counsel appearing for the UPSC told the apex court that he needs to take instructions and place on record all the aspects before any decision is taken on the issue.
The Commission has now decided to add the IRMS, Group ‘A’ to the list of Services indicated in its Notice under reference. Accordingly, the tentative number of vacancies i.e. 861 as indicated in the examination notice dated February 2 now stands modified to 1011.
The recent move on deputation would make the IAS officers more familiar with the working of the Central Government. It would lead to better cadre management in the states where many anomalies have crept in.
An examination will be conducted by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) on April 10, 2022 for admission into the Army, Navy and Air Force wings of the NDA for the 149th Course, and for the 111th Indian Naval Academy Course (INAC) commencing from January 2, 2023.
The Main Examination in the scheme of the Civil Services Examination, 2021 for the services and posts mentioned in preamble to the Rules will be held from January 7, 2022.
Job and business opportunities continue to be extremely limited in Odisha. A career in UPSC civil services is held in admiration in the state. The real reason behind youths increasingly getting disinterested in IAS, IPS or IFS exams seems to be the growing inadequacy in academic field that has made it increasingly difficult for Odisha candidates to compete.
Marks of the selected candidates will be available within 15 days from the date of declaration of final results on the Commission’s website for 30 days.
Of the successful candidates, 263 are of general category, 86 from the economically weaker section (EWS), 220 of Other Backward Classes (OBC), 122 Scheduled Castes (SC) and 61 belong to the Scheduled Tribes category.
As per the notification, physical standards and number of vacancies for women candidates would be notified after receipt of the same from Government of India (Ministry of Defence) in due course of time.
