The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has not revealed the date for the announcement of UPSC Civil Services main examination 2016 results though reports have claimed that it would happen soon. However, it appears like the results of the examination will be declared only next month.

It was reported that the UPSC Civil Services main examination 2016 results would be declared as early as mid January but it happened on February 19 last year. So, it wouldn't come as a surprise if the Civil Services main examination 2016 results are declared at around the same time.

The UPSC Civil Services main examination 2016 was held from December 3 to 9. Candidates who pass the exams will face personal interview before getting recruited.
