There is another good news for the candidates passing the competitive examinations conducted by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) and the candidates who reach the interview. UPSC Chairman Arvind Saxena has recently given a proposal to the Government of India the candidates who reach the interview after passing the UPSC or other competitive examinations can be appointed as required by the government ministries.
According to the report, if the government accepts UPSC’s proposal then the people who missed the selection due to rejection in an interview can be considered for other jobs. UPSC recommends that since the candidates already undergo a strict screening process, the government and other organizations may consider them for jobs. It has been said that UPSC will help in reducing the stress of the examination for civil service candidates.
