Reserve List is not a waiting list
Meanwhile, the UPSC has also sought to dispel misinformation being circulated on social media about the Reserve List in Civil Services Examinations.
The UPSC clarified that for Civil Services Examination, it recommended candidates belonging to different categories for their appointments in different services.
The UPSC noted that while declaring the Main result, the number of recommended candidates under the General (unreserved) category is reduced by the total number of candidates belonging to SC/ST, OBCs and the Economically Weaker Sections who acquire the merit at or above the general qualifying standard without availing any concession/relaxation.
Along with the recommended candidates' list, the UPSC also draws up a Reserve List of general and reserved categories ranking below the last recommended candidate in the merit order under each of the categories for subsequent recommendation after the candidates recommended after the Main result are allocated services.
According to the UPSC, this is an established practice of giving fair treatment to reserved category candidates that enables them to choose a service of higher preference based on their reserved status.
It further reiterated that the Reserve List is not a waiting list. In fact, all candidates, who are recommended from the Reserve List, are placed en-bloc below the last recommended candidate in the merit position in each category of the Main result of the examination.
