upscNew Delhi: The Central government has asked the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) to postpone the Civil Services preliminary exam. The exams are scheduled to be held on August 24, 2014.

Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office Jitendra Singh said the government wanted to postpone the exams till clarity was reached on the syllabus issue.

Students have been protesting against the exam saying there is a need to change the second paper as it makes it difficult for people coming from rural areas of Hindi-speaking states to crack the exam.
