Parliamentary Panel asks UPSC to reduce recruitment cycle



The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) Civil Services exam is one of the toughest exams in the country. Candidates study for long hours to crack the high-profile exam and the syllabus is extremely vast as well.

After clearing it, the said exam comes with a long recruitment process too. It takes nearly 15 months to become a civil servant. More often than not, the long recruitment process takes a heavy toll on candidates’ physical and mental health. Due to this, a Parliamentary Committee has asked UPSC to reduce the civil services examination’s selection cycle.

The Panel has asserted that the nearly 15 months long recruitment process wastes candidates’ prime years. Further, the panel also asked the Commission to examine the reasons for the low turnout of candidates in the civil services examination.
