UPSC Defers Personality Tests for Civil Services Candidates

National Edu News

The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has deferred the the Personality Tests for Civil Services Examination 2019 candidates from 23rd July to 30th July.  Of 2,304 candidates for personality tests, 623 remain to be examined by PT boards.

As train services are not fully functional, the Commission, as a one-time measure, has decided to reimburse the lowest ‘to and fro airfare’ to the candidates coming for the PTs. State Governments have been requested to allow the candidates holding e-Summon Letters for PTs to move in/out of the restricted zones for the purpose of attending the same. The Commission is also helping the candidates with their lodging and transport requirements.

On reaching the Commission, all candidates will be provided a ‘Sealed Kit’ consisting of a face mask, face shield, a bottle of sanitizer and hand gloves. Since the Interview Boards generally comprise of senior advisers, the Commission has taken all precautionary and safety measures for contactless PTs in order to shield the interviewers and the interviewees appropriately. The Commission’s staff involved in conduct of the PTs will also be equipped with suitable protective gear.
