The Union Public Service Commission has come up with a clarification about the recently released reserve list of Civil Services exam 2019. The reserve list for CSE exam 2019 was released on January 4, which recommended 89 more candidates for appointment to IAS, IPS and other civil services.
In its communique on the operation of Reserve List, the UPSC said “While declaring Main result (the result at first instance), the number of recommended candidates under General (unreserved) category is reduced by the total number of candidates belonging to the Scheduled Castes, the Scheduled Tribes, the Other Backward Classes and the Economically Weaker Sections who acquire the merit at or above the general qualifying standard without availing any of the concession/relaxation either in eligibility or in selection criteria,” it has said.
The reserve list is prepared along with the main list for general and reserved categories, the UPSC has said. The list is used for subsequent recommendation after concluding the exercise of service allocation of the recommended candidates of the Main result by the Government, the Commission explains.
“Reserve List is not a waiting list. In fact, the Reserve list is necessitated in a multi-service examination to allow candidates of reserved categories to choose a service of higher preference who qualify at or above general qualifying standard without availing any concession/relaxation at any stage of the examination,” it has said.
