Around 10 lakh candidates apply for this examination every year. In a set of instructions, the UPSC has said that wearing of mask or face cover will be mandatory for all candidates, and candidates without a mask or face cover will not be allowed entry into the examination venue. “Candidates, however, will have to remove their masks for verification, whenever required by the Examination functionaries. A candidate may carry his or her own hand sanitizer (small size) in a transparent bottle and follow COVID 19 norms of ‘social distancing’ as well as ‘personal hygiene’ inside the Examination Halls/Rooms as well as in the premises of the venue,” UPSC has said in a set of instructions.
Candidates have been told to bring the print-out of the e-Admit Card along with the original Photo Identity Card to secure admission to Examination Hall. “E-Admit Card must be preserved until the declaration of the final results of the Civil Services Examination, 2020. You are responsible for the safe custody of the e-Admit Card and in the event of any other person using this e-Admit Card, the onus lies on you to prove that you have not used the service of any impersonator,” the UPSC has said.
The Civil Services (Main) Examination is scheduled for January 8, 2021. The JEE Main Examinations have started from September 1 and will continue till September 6 and about 8.5 lakh candidates are appearing for them. The NEET exam will be conducted on September 13 for about 16 lakh candidates.

UPSC is ignoring the danger to the candidates and to the parents who will be prone to infection due to COVID-19. Taking exam in the midst of such uncertainty is not advisable. It's putting the lives of so many people in danger and it would adversely affect their mains exam also if they clear prelims and get infected in the process. The exam can easily be merged with 2021 exams
