Candidates with changed names must posses at least one government-issued photo identity card with the new name along with the official Gazette notification. They are also required to sign an undertaking at the time of the examination.

As per the notice issued on its official website [PDF], the candidates who wish to avail the benefits of 10 per cent EWS quota, need to get their EWS certificate ready before 1 August 2019. In order to reportedly accommodate the EWS quota, UPSC has earlier announced an additional 100 vacancies.
