Minister of State for Prime Minister's Office; Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Jitendra Singh said that the examinations of Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) and Staff Selection Commission (SSC) that were put on hold will be definitely held



He further confirmed that the exam dates will be decided only after the lockdown ends on May 3. On the exam dates, he also added that the dates will be decided in such a manner that sufficient time will be given to all the aspirants to reach their designated exam centres.
This statement from the Minister and statements released by the UPSC and SSC on April 15 makes it clear that the exams will not be cancelled. They will be held as per a new schedule.

The UPSC has postponed Civil Services 2019 main exam and has put on hold the notifications of Indian Economic Service and Indian Statistical Service exam.
