results out, 1,859 shortlisted for interview
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
The number of candidates called for personality test is substantially higher
than recent years considering that close to 700
vacancies are available
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.
