As per some media reports, the Railway Board had issued a letter to the Union Public Service Commission to not appoint officers for railways through the examination.  Candidates preparing for the Civil Services Examination or IES exam might be disappointed to hear this news. With the reduction in the number of vacancies, the competition is likely to increase making it more difficult to clear the exam.

UPSC has already released the notification for the UPSC Civil Services exam 2020 on 12th February 2020. Candidates must start working hard for the UPSC Exam 2020 to be conducted on 31st May 2020. UPSC CSE has witnessed a major decrease in the vacancies over the years. With the railway board backing out from being a part of the recruitment, the vacancies can face a major setback in the future as well.
