will be conducted by the Union Public Service Commission on August
24 this year.
The prestigious Civil Services Examination is conducted annually
to select officers for Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian
Foreign Service (IFS) and Indian Police Service (IPS), among others.
The UPSC has sought various ministries assistance to spare some
officers under them who can be deputed as Assistant Supervisors and
Invigilators for the exam.
"The Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination, 2014 will be conducted
by the Commission on August 24, 2014. Out of over ten lakh candidates
expected to apply for this examination, more than one lakh candidates
are anticipated to opt for Delhi as their centre of examination,"
the UPSC said in a letter to the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT).
For this purpose, about 250 sub-centres will be required. At the
same time, the requirement of Assistant Supervisors and Invigilators
will also be substantial, the letter said.
"The Commission would be requesting various ministries or departments
of Government of India, including their attached and subordinate
offices in Delhi, to spare the services of the requisite number of
Group 'A' and Group 'B' officers, for performing the duties of Assistant
Supervisors and Invigilators, in the aforesaid exam," it said.
