Could the civil services questions be answered in the regional languages?

September 18, 2015

Yes. A candidate can appear in the Mains examination in any of the languages mentioned in the 8th Schedule of the Constitution. However, there is one disadvantage for one who want to write the exam in regional language, given the change in syllabus in the Mains examination, it is difficult for a candidate to find the material in a vernacular language and if it is not available, it is burdensome to translate all the material into his/her regional language.
