Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has deferred the Civil Services 2020 preliminary examination as the nation-wide lockdown due to COVID-19 further extended to two more weeks. Earlier, UPSC Civil Service preliminary examination was scheduled to be held on May 31, 2020.

An official notice released in this regard reads that "The Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination, 2020, scheduled to be held on May 31, 2020 therefore stands deferred. Since this examination also serves as the screening test for the Indian Forest Service Examination, the schedule for the Indian Forest Service Examination is also deferred. The situation will be reviewed again on May 20, 2020 and fresh dates for these examinations shall be notified on the UPSC website in due course."

The Commission has already deferred the following examinations:

(a) Personality test for remaining candidates for the Civil Services Examination, 2019
(b) Notification for the Indian Economic Service/Indian Statistical Service Examination, 2020
(c) Notification for the Combined Medical Services Examination, 2020
(d) Notification for the Central Armed Police Forces Examination, 2020
(e) the NDA & Naval Academy Examination, 2020

The notice further reads that "As and when dates are decided for the deferred tests/examinations, it will be ensured that candidates are given a notice of at least 30 days."
