Candidates will be asked to answer 190 questions.

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.
