Students appearing for Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) main examination have been issued e-admit cards from this year. Paper admit cards have been scrapped from this year paving way for electronic admit cards which have already been uploaded on the Commission’s website www.upsc.gov.in.
“The candidates are advised to download their e-admit cards and take a printout thereof. The candidates will have to produce the printout of their e-admit cards at the allotted venue for appearing in the examination,” the Commission said.
The UPSC will be conducting the test at 23 centres from December 3 to 9.
“In case the photograph is not visible or available on the e-admit cards, candidates are advised to carry identical photograph for each session along with proof of identity such as Aadhaar card, voter identity card, driving licence, passport etc. to the venue of the examination. No paper admit card will be issued for this examination by the Commission,” the Commission further added.
Candidates have been asked to bring e-admit card print-out in each session to secure admission to the examination hall. The e-admit card may be preserved till the declaration of written test result, the Commission said.
The civil services examination is conducted annually in three stages — preliminary, main and interview — to select officers of the prestigious Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and Indian Police Service (IPS), among others.
