NEW DELHI: Citing increase in the
number of IAS and IPS aspirants, the
UPSC has sought from the Centre
services of about 5,000 invigilators
for this year's civil services
The civil services preliminary
examination 2015 is scheduled to be
held on August 23.
There has been a steep rise
recorded in the number of
candidates for civil services
preliminary examination during the
past few years. In 2014, the number
of candidates who applied for civil
services preliminary examination
exceeded 9.45 lakh, it said.
It is estimated that this year, the
number of applicants for the
preliminary examination would
increase to approximately 13 lakh.
This examination will be held in 71
centres at about 3000 venues across
the country, UPSC Secretary Ashim
Khurana said in a letter to
Department of Personnel and
Training (DoPT).
Out of the 13 lakh candidates, about
1.20 lakh candidates are anticipated
to opt for Delhi as their centre of
examination, and they have to be
accommodated in about 260 venues.
The examination would be
supervised by the principals of the
institutions, Khurana said.
"However, 50 per cent of the
examination functionaries i.e.
assistant supervisors and invigilators
would have to be provided by the
Commission. Therefore, the
requirement of number of assistant
supervisors and invigilators to be
provided by the UPSC would be
around 5,000," he said.
