  1. Sir/madam
    Kindly postponed the ocs prelims because UPSC viva-voce and OCS is coinciding.
    Kindly give a compensatory chance in OCS 2021 and 2022 to the aspirants who have exhausted their upper age limit.

    • You must connect with the officials at 0671 – 2305611, 2304141 for this genuine concern.
