The decision is taken by central government but it has not yet been decided by the UPSC to be implemented with retrospective effect. As it’s an election time so government can do anything to gain vote so these could be a reason for doing so. However it’s still not clear that the 2 attempts will benefit how long and it will benefit to the students who exhausted in 2013. The Civil services examination (preliminary) is to be scheduled to be held on august 24 this year. The candidates with general category are allowed 4 attempts but it increased to 6, OBC category attempts who were allowed 7 attempts as per rules can now give 9 attempts and there is no cap on attempts of the SC/ST category. Let’s hope what the final decision be taken by UPSC.
!! Best of Luck!!
For all those candidates who will appear for the examination.
