NEW DELHI: No paper admit card will be issued for this year's civil services main examination, scheduled to begin from Friday, the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has said.         

The candidates will have to download their e-admit cards and take a printout thereof. UPSC will be conducting the main examination at 23 centres from December 18 to 23. The civil services examination is conducted annually in three stages -- preliminary, main and interview -- to select officers of the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and Indian Police Service (IPS), among others.           

"The Commission has uploaded the e-admit cards on its website at www.upsc.gov.in. The candidates are advised to download their e-admit cards and take a printout thereof. The candidates will have to produce the printout of their e-admit cards at the allotted venue for appearing in the examination," a press release issued by the UPSC said.            

"No paper admit card will be issued for this examination by the Commission," it said. In case the photograph is not visible or available on the e-admit cards, candidates are advised to carry identical photograph for each session along with proof of identity such as valid identity card, Aadhar card, voter identity card, driving license, passport etc. to the venue of the examination.          

About 15,000 candidates have qualified in this year's civil services preliminary examination, results of which were declared on October 12.       

As against a record number of 9,45,908 candidates who had applied for the exam, about 4.63 lakh wrote the test on August 23, which is about 49 per cent of the total applicants.Z
