The questions in objective tests, except for the test of general English, will be in both English and Hindi. There will negative marking and one-fourth of the marks assigned to a question will be deducted for each wrong answer.

The marks obtained in the prelims (Phase-I) will not be considered for the selection and only the aggregate marks obtained in the main exam (Phase-II) will hold in the final merit list. Provisional selection will be made on the basis of candidate’s performance in the main exam.
