Reimbursement of To and Fro Airfares of Interview Appearing Candidates: UPSE
| Education Jagat - 01 Aug 2020

UPSC has decided to reimburse to-and-fro airfares of civil services aspirants appearing for the personality test in Delhi as train services are “not fully functional” due to COVID-19 curbs, according to an official statement issued.
   “As train services are not fully functional, the Commission, as a one-time measure, has decided to reimburse the lowest ‘to and fro airfare’ to the candidates coming for the PTs (personality tests). State Governments have been requested to allow the candidates holding e-summon letters for PTs to move in/out of the restricted zones for the purpose of attending the same,” the statement issued by the UPSC said.
 The UPSC was in the midst of conducting the personality tests/interviews for 2,304 candidates for the civil services examination, 2019 (CSE-2019) when the government decided to impose a lockdown in late March to contain the spread of COVID-19, it said. The Commission then decided to defer the interview of the remaining 623 candidates, the UPSC said.
