Candidates should note that any omission, mistake, discrepancy in encoding or filling in details in the OMR answer sheet, especially with regard to roll number and test booklet series code, will render the answer sheet liable for rejection, it said.
In a set of do's and don'ts, UPSC has asked candidates not to bring any costly items inside the examination venue. "Electronic gadgets like cellular/mobile phones, any other devices for communication, laptop, blue tooth device, and calculator are banned inside the examination hall.
"Any infringement of these instructions shall entail disciplinary action against the candidates concerned including debarment from future examinations/selection," UPSC has said.
The civil services examination is conducted annually by the Commission in three stages -- preliminary, main and interview -- to select officers for Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and Indian Police Service (IPS) among others.

Of these, 1,099 have been declared successful in the test, result of which was declared on May 31.
