Important Instructions To Be Followed Amid COVID-19:

UPSC has asked aspirant to bring their own hand sanitizer in a small-sized transparent bottle.

Each and every candidate have to wear a face mask. No aspirant will be allowed if he or she comes without wearing a mask at the exam venue.

However, for verification candidates can remove their mask.

"Candidates to follow COVID 19 norms of 'social distancing' as well as 'personal hygiene' inside the Examination Halls/Rooms as well as in the premises of the Venue," UPSC has said.

However, this is the first time when UPSC has given such instructions in the wake of COVID-19.
