UPSC will not charge any examination fee from females

with 2 comments

In the recently notified UPSC Civil Services Examination (also called the IAS Exam/examination by many), the Union Public Service Commission has decided to give fee exemption to females along with the SCs, STs and the PH category. This is a welcome step and probably will be admitted in the UPSC examination system and be applied to all the exams conducted by the commission.

Please note that this fee is the remission on the 50 Rupees fee to be paid after buying the application form. Women and everyone else (including the SC, ST, PH category candidates) have to buy the UPSC forms in 20 Rupees and there is no fee rebate on that.

This is a symbolic step for women’s empowerment. UPSC clearly writes this in the notification.

” Government strives to have a workforce which reflects gender balance and women candidates are encouraged to apply”.

By the way, why this had not occurred to the UPSC to date?! Read the declaration above carefully. There is more to it than meets the eye.

A debated question among the UPSC aspirants is that women are more favoured in the Civil Services Examination interview (and they score more marks in general compared to the menfolk!). More on this debate later. Keep reading.

  2. after reading all the comments and acordng to my personal view, i will sugggest use all ur resources which u got lucklily from god say it good IQ, good earning n well posted parents careful also, and funds to go for coachings n consultations, and reservation category, and enough money to spend, that is hard work n
    poor family background no economic resources no reservation that is bad luck and inspite of above hurdles trying to get success is the biggest crime one should avoid
    cos one must know that sindhia was more hard worker not laxmibai
    jawahar was more hardworker not subhash
    indira was more hard worker not lalbahadur
    carolus linius was more hard worker not pinox
    reservation candidates r more hard workers than generals
    and the real general candidates r really hardworkers than (driving scoda, having laptops, good silent rooms with enormous facilities timely breakfast, n a long list of supporters) the poor fellows without the fuel of that hardworking engine, but merely a label of general,
    dont worry bhai sabka time ayega
