“The window of submitting the revised choice of Centres by the candidates will be operational in two phases i.e. 12th-19th July, 2021 (06.00 PM) and 26th-30th July, 2021 (06.00 PM) on the Commission’s website https://upsconline.nic.in. The candidates are advised to visit the website and submit their choices of Centres of the above Examination, if required,” read the UPSC notice.
Moreover, the requests for change in the centres will be considered based on the principle of “first apply-first allot” basis once the capacity of a particular centre is attained, the same will be frozen and will not be visible to the candidate.
