  • The Centres and the date of holding the examination as mentioned above are liable to be changed at the discretion of UPSC.
  • You should note that there will be a ceiling on the number of candidates allotted to each of the Centres, except Chennai, Dispur, Kolkata and Nagpur.
  • Allotment of Centres will be on the “first-apply-first-allot” basis, and once the capacity of a particular Centre is attained, the same will be frozen.
  • If you cannot get a Centre of their choice due to ceiling, you will be required to choose a Centre from the remaining ones.
  • So you are advised to apply early so that you could get a Centre of your choice.
