Minister of State for Prime Minister’s Office; Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Jitendra Singh said that the examinations of Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) and Staff Selection Commission (SSC) that were put on hold will be definitely held.
He further confirmed that the exam dates will be decided only after the lockdown ends on May 3. On the exam dates, he also added that the dates will be decided in such a manner that sufficient time will be given to all the aspirants to reach their designated exam centres.
We have been repeatedly reiterating that the future and interests of the UPSC/SSC aspirants are high on the priority of the @narendramodi Government. There is no room, absolutely, to be panicked by hearsay or unverified social media reports. https://t.co/oI3Db8z9KZ
