UPPSC Notification – PCS Recruitment 2019

The UPPSC notification for the exam year 2019 is expected to be released in the last week of April.

Earlier, the Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission (UPPSC) had released the official exam calendar for January – June 2019. The calendar lists the important UPPSC exam dates for the given period.

However, in the calendar, there was no mention of UPPSC PCS Exam 2019. This sparked protests among the PCS exam aspirants and reports suggest that the commission has decided to issue a notification soon.
