UPSC results out, 1,859 shortlisted for interview


Union Public Service Commission on Monday declared the results of Civil Services (Main) Examinations, 2007, shortlisting 1,859 candidates for final interview (personality test) for recruitment to Indian Administrative Service, Indian Police Service, Indian Foreign Service and other central services. The interviews will start on March 31.

The number of candidates called for personality test is substantially higher than recent years considering that close to
700 vacancies are available this year.

The number of vacancies in the IAS itself is expected to be around 110 because of a shortfall of officers. The government has already announced that the number of IAS posts would be 120 and 130 for the next two years. Marksheets of candidates who did not qualify would be put up on UPSC's website within a month.

Meanwhile, Alok Rawat, a 1977 batch IAS officer of Sikkim cadre, assumed charge as the UPSC secretary on Monday.
