Why UPSC Introduces Application Withdrawal Facility from 2019

Further, candidates can simply ask for application withdrawal which shall cancel his candidature from that UPSC exam.
As per the current trends, only half of the applicants turn up to appear for the UPSC exams. This wastes a lot of resources arranged by the Union Public Service Commission in conducting the test. Furthermore, the Commission feels that the initiative would benefit the candidates and authorities mutually. The current amount of wastage of energy and resources in booking venues, hiring invigilators, printing etc. would be saved.
