Interview call letters for CS Mains 2010 personality test are being sent

without comments

The UPSC is sending the call letter for the personality test for the Civil Services Mains (Personality Test) 2010 now. The results of the civil services Main examination 2010 were declared in the evening of 4 March 2011. On 11 March 2011, a friend of a candidate received the interview call letter in Delhi so you can safely assume that they have started sending it. The people from the NCR region will be interviewed first, as is usually the case.

If you are wondering how the UPSC calls people for interviews this comment by someone in a forum may be useful:

the interview is based only on roll numbers and medium….distance does’nt matter(as long as you are in remote areas for which upsc gives extension of time for submission of forms in prelims n mains).so the initial roll numbers(up to 6000) whether one is in north,east,west or south will hv int in the first week….so start preparing.

So even an OBC candidate in the roll no 9000 to 10000 has his interview on 23 March 2011.
