Union Public Service Commission (UPSC)Prime Minister Manmohan Singh approved the changes in the exam patterns of Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examination. According to the new changes, more weightage will be given to the General Studies paper.

The decision was based on the recommendations of the committee which was constituted by the UPSC.
