Civil Services Results:
The Union Public Service Commission, UPSC had released the Civil Services Results 2019 on August 4, 2020, on upsc.gov.in. Since the release of results, many candidates and others had taken to social media to question the selection only on 829 posts when the vacancies were released for 927 candidates. The commission has put an end to all the queries and has called the information misleading.
The Commission goes by the Rules of Examination that has been notified by the Government of India for recruitment in civil services. It went on to clarify that in the 927 candidates vacancies it has released the results for 829 posts and rest are in the reserve list, which in turn is also as per the rules set by the Government.

The PIB statement issued by UPSC also reads,
“It is hereby clarified that as against 927 vacancies for Civil Services Examination, 2019, the Commission, in the first instance, has released the result of 829 candidates and has also maintained a Reserve List in accordance with Rule-16 (4) & (5) of Civil Services Examination Rules, 2019,” read the statement released on PIB.
As per the commission, this has been its standard practice for many years. The practice is followed so that if the candidates belonging to reserve categories, who are selected at general standards, wish to choose services and cadres based on their reserve status if it is beneficial for them. This way the resultant vacancies can be filled up from the reserve list.
“The Reserve List carries an adequate number of candidates from the reserve categories also to cater to the shortfall arising out of preferences exercised by candidates belonging to reserve categories figuring above general standard. UPSC is mandated to keep the Reserve List confidential until the process of such exercise of preferences is over in accordance with Rule 16(5) of the Civil Services Examination Rules, 2019.”
The statement was released clarifying the lesser number of recommended candidates against the number of vacancies intended by the Government for the exam. It read, “It has been brought to the notice of the Union Public Service Commission that some misleading information is circulating regarding less number of recommended candidates against the vacancies indented by the Government for the Civil Services Examination, 2019.”
