What is UPSC?
For those ignorant souls, UPSC expanded as Union Public Service Commission is the premier central recruiting agency in the country accountable for examinations for and appointments to various departments and ministries of Governments of India. It is authorised to report directly to the President of India and can, subsequently, advise the centre through him. Founded in 1926, UPSC is headquartered in New Delhi and functions through its own secretariat.
Every year, the Commission conducts various exams to select skilled and right candidates for Indian Police Service (IPS), Indian Revenue Service (IRS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and Indian Administrative Service (IAS). Certainly, these exams are the toughest to crack. Qualifying such exams would endow the candidates with not just prestige, but also a lot of responsibilities.
