This year, the UPSC for the first time allowed candidates to withdraw their names from civil services examination. While taking the decision, the commission said only half of the over 10 lakh aspirants who apply for the exam actually appear in the test. The arrangement will be implemented beginning with Engineering Services Examination, 2019, it said.

"The commission has to book venues, print papers, hire invigilators and ship the documents for all the 10 lakh applicants - which turns out to be a 50% waste of energy and resources," Union Public Service Commission chairman Arvind Saxena had said on the occasion of the 92nd foundation day celebrations. The UPSC conducts the civil services examination annually in three stages -- preliminary, main and interview -- to select officers for Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and Indian Police Service (IPS) among others.
