Revised civil services list

Union Public Service Commission (UPSC)released a revised list of candidates for appointment to Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS), Indian Police Service (IPS) and Central Services (CS), Group ‘A’ and ‘B’.the list of candidates was drawn up in compliance of the judgment of the Madras High Court but, in view of the Supreme Court decision, which has granted ad-interim stay on earlier judgements a revised list has been released.The HC ordered that if a quota candidate figured in the general list, he must be considered as a general examinee even if he availed of his reserved status for getting a better service.This meant a kind of "double quota benefit" for such candidates.In this list, UPSC has recommended 638 candidates for appointment in the government, down from the 734 candidates provisionally recommended on May 16. Half of the candidates in this waiting list are fresh names from the general category, giving them hope that they may have a chance if some successful candidates do not take up the civil service offer.
