On   the  basis   of  result  of  the  written   part  of  the  Main  Examination,  candidates   will   be called  for interview  in the ratio  of 1:3 against  the number  of vacancies  advertised.
The  candidates   will   be  interviewed   by  a   board  that  will   have  before  them  a  record  of his/her  career.   He/She  will   be asked  questions  on  matters  of general  interest.  The  objective  of the  interview   is  to assess  the personal  suitability   of the candidate  for a career  in  public  service by a  board  of competent and unbiased  observers.  The test is intended  to judge  the mental  caliber of a   candidate.  In  broad  terms  this  is  really  an  assessment  of not  only  his  intellectual   qualities but  also  social  traits  and  his  interest  in  current  affairs.  Some  of the  qualities   to  be judged   are mental    alertness,    critical    powers    of   assimilation,   clear   and   logical    exposition,    balance    of judgment,   variety   and  depth  of  interest,  ability   for  social  cohesion  and  leadership,   intellectual and moral  integrity.
The  technique  of the  interview   is  not  that  of a strict  cross-examination  but  of a  natural,
though  directed  and  purposive   conversation  which  is  intended  to reveal  the mental  qualities  of the candidate.
The   interview    test  is   not   intended   to   be  a   test    either   of  the  specialized    or   general knowledge    of  the   candidates   which   has   been   already   tested   through   their   written    papers. Candidates  are expected  to have  taken an  intelligent interest  not only  in  their  special  subjects  of academic  study but also in the events which  are happening  around  them  both within  and outside their  own  State  or  Country  as  well   as  in  modern   currents  of  thought  and  in  new  discoveries which  should  rouse the curiosity  of well  educated youth.
The  interview,   however,  will   not  have  any  qualifying  marks.   The  marks   scored  at  the
interview  will  be added to the marks  scored in the Written  Examination   (Main).
The  Commission  shall  recommend   exactly  the  same  number   of candidates   for  different posts as notified.  The Commission  shall  not recommend  a  candidate  for a  post which  he/she  has not opted for.
Marks thus  obtained  by  the candidates  in  the Main  Examination   (Written  Part as well  as Interview)   would   determine   their   final   ranking.   Candidates   shall   be  allotted   to  the  various services  keeping  in view  of their  ranks  in the examination and  (respective)   preference  expressed by them  for different  posts  (i.e. on the basis of Merit cum  Preference opted by the candidates  in their applications  for the Main Examination)  and reservations  therein.
(a)  e-Admission   Certificate  indicating   the  eligible  candidate's  Roll  no., venue  and  programme   of the Examination   will  be uploaded  in the Commission's  website.
(b)   The  mere  fact  that  a  certificate   of  admission   has  been  issued  will   not  imply   that  his/her candidature    has   been   finally    cleared   by   the   Commission.    Candidates    may    note   that   the Commission   takes  up  the  verification    of  eligibility  conditions   only   after  the  candidates   have qualified  for the Main  Examination.
(c)  Candidates  must  produce  a   photo  identity  proof  of any  of the  following   in  the  examination hall:
(i)  Pan Card.
(ii)  Driving Licence. (iii)  Voters ID card. (iv)  Passport.
(v)   ID  Card  issued  by the educational  Institution  where  he/she  is studying  presently. (vi)  ID  card issued by Government  or public  sector undertaking.
(vii)  Bank Passbook containing  photograph. 
(d)  The  Commission  reserves  the right  to cancel  the candidature   of any  candidate  as and  when any ineligibility condition  is detected. If any information   declared  by the candidate  is found  to be false at any  stage, the candidate  will  be penalized  as per prevailing law/rules.
(e)  The decision  of the Commission  as  to the  eligibility or otherwise   of a candidate  for admission
to  the examination  shall  be final.
