The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) was directed by the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) to look into a plea seeking fresh chance to candidates under the changed pattern of civil services exams.
    
CAT had disposed off the pleas in October asking the government to come out with an order within four weeks time. The Tribunal in its order had asked the DoPT to examine whether such candidates who were eligible for exam in 2011 or had taken in 2012, 2013 or 2014 should be given 'another chance to take civil services exam with changed pattern in 2015'.
    
After analysing all facts, it is decided that these candidates do not deserve to be given additional chance to appear in civil services examination, an order issued by DoPT.

The DoPT said the changes introduced in 2015 did not cause any disadvantage to the examinees as it made general studies Paper-II merely a qualifying paper.
     
The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) conducts the prestigious examination annually to select IAS, IFS and IPS officers, among others, in three stages--preliminary (which has two papers), main and interview.
