As was expected, the notification came out amidst a celebration time of the new year.. The notification is posted on the UPSC website. Those who cannot access it can purchase a copy of Employment news or Rozgar samachar dated jan 02.
I have uploaded a copy of the notification for the benefit of all those who need it and cant get even the Employment news copy..
The syllabus and pattern remain the same and the number of posts is a whopping 965, which is a record in itself. Further the CRF stamp fee is waived in case of female aspirants- "Government strives to have a workforce which reflects gender balance and women candidates are encouraged to apply".
All in all a welcome news for most as the old pattern is retained.
