Candidates not to file RTI applications on UPSC

New Delhi, Oct 15: The results of the civil services preliminary examination conducted by the Union Public Service Commission were declared on October 14, 2014.

The Commission has advised candidates not to file RTI applications seeking details of their marks that would be provided to them after the entire selection process for the civil services examination is over.

"Candidates are also informed that marks, cut off marks and answer keys of civil services (preliminary) examination 2014 will be provided only after the entire process of the civil services examination, 2014, is over i.e. after the declaration of final result. Therefore, no application under RTI Act, 2005 or otherwise will be entertained in this regard," the UPSC said in a statement.

The successful candidates have been asked to fill in Detailed Application Form (DAF) for Civil Services Main (CSM) examination scheduled to be held from December 14 this year, it said. As many as 4,51,602 candidates had taken the civil services preliminary examination on August 24.

A controversy had erupted in July over the pattern of civil services examination as students demanding change in Civil Services Aptitude Test (CSAT) or Paper II, had taken to the streets in a violent agitation, claiming it put aspirants from rural areas or with Hindi background at a disadvantage.

The UPSC has also declared results of successful candidates who have qualified for admission to Indian Forest Service (main) examination, 2014.

Over 16,000 candidates had cleared the Civil Services (Preliminary) examination 2014.

"As many as 1,106 candidates have been declared successful to appear for Indian Forest Services (main) examination. They were also selected through civil services preliminary examination," Joshi said.
