Odisha Civil Services aspirants to get additional attempt

Bhubaneswar: The State government has granted one more additional attempt to appear Odisha Civil Services examination (OCS) for the candidates who have appeared the examination in 2019 or 2020 but are ineligible for 2021 due to attainment of age limit or exhaustion of attempts under the prescribed rules.

Reportedly, due to the delay in conducting Odisha Civil Services, Combined Competitive Recruitment Examinations (CCRE) in each year during the period 2011-2014 and consequent upon the introduction of Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) pattern in the OCS Examination, it was decided by the Government earlier to allow additional compensatory attempts to appear in the OCSE-2016, OCSE-2017, OCSE-2018, OCSE-2019 and OCSE-2020 irrespective of maximum age limit of the candidates.

However, there are demands from some OCS Examination aspirants to allow them additional chances to appear in the OCSE-2021 irrespective of their maximum age limit.

Hence, it has been decided by the Government that notwithstanding anything contained in the Rules, the intending candidates who have appeared in OCSE-2019 or OCSE-2020 but are otherwise ineligible to appear/compete in the OCSE-2021 on account of the attainment of upper age limit or exhaustion of the attempts prescribed under the Rules, shall be allowed one more additional compensatory attempt for appearing in OCSE-2021.

It is to be noted that no further attempt to appear in the OCS Examination shall be allowed in the future.
