Dilemma over proposed changes in Civil Services Mains Examination, conducted by UPSC, has still not over. Nobody knows when changes, if any, will take place. According to the Ministry of Personnel, the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) have submitted a proposal to the Central Government suggesting certain changes in the existing scheme of Civil Services (Main) Examination to make it more relevant with the present day, global as well as internal scenario on the basis of the report of a committee, constituted by the Commission under the chairmanship of Prof. Arun S.Nigavekar, former Chairman, University Grants Commission (UGC). Till now, no decision has been taken by the Government on these recommendations. This was stated by Shri V. Narayanasamy, Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office in written reply to a question by Shri Avinash Pande in the Rajya Sabha on 6 December 2012. This statement doesn't clarify whether any change will take place in forthcoming examination or not. Everything will be clear on 2 February, 2013, when UPSC will notify the Civil Services Examination 2013 advertisement. But it is now quite clear that, UPSC have already submitted its recommendations on proposed changes in the mains examination. So, now ball is in the government's court.
