The Union Public Service Commission has suggested changes in the prestigious Civil Services examination to make it more relevant in the present day scenario.
"The UPSC have submitted a proposal to the central government, suggesting certain changes in the existing scheme of civil services (main) examination to make it more relevant with the present day, global as well as internal scenario on the basis of the report of a committee," Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions V Narayanasamy told Rajya Sabha in a written reply.
The committee was constituted under the chairmanship of Prof Arun S Nigavekar, former chairman, University Grants Commission (UGC).
"Till now, no decision has been taken by the government on these recommendations," the Minister said.
