Additional chance to civil service aspirants
Central Government provided an additional attempt in Civil Services Examination (CSE) 2015 to those candidates who appeared in Civil Services Examination 2011.
Further two additional attempts were also provided to all category of candidates with consequential relaxation of maximum age, if required, with effect from Civil Services Examination (CSE)-2014.
The Tribunal vide order dated 27.10.2015 inter alia directed the Central Government to examine whether even such candidates who were eligible to take CSE 2011 or had taken 2012 or 2013 or 2014 examination should also be given another chance to take Civil Services Examination in 2015 with new pattern.
