Will PM Imran Khan really conduct A Special CSS Exam this year 2020?

PM Imran Khan is going to conduct Special CSS Exam this year.

PM Imran Khan is going to conduct “A Special CSS” Exam this year in the month of November or December. This special CSS Exam is very beneficial for the backward areas of Balochistan and that of the Sindh. This news came into attention in the show of journalist Hamid Mir’s when Special Adviser to PM on Establishment Shahzad Arbab shared that the special CSS Exam 2020 would only be conducted this year. As 188 seats of civil servants are leftover, so in order to fill the vacant posts, PM Imran Khan plans to conduct a special CSS exam to fill all 188 vacant posts.

Shahzad Arbab’s tweet about Particular CSS Exam

While later on Twitter Shahzad Arbab twitted that PM Imran Khan approves special CSS exam to fill 188 vacancies in federal services carried over in last few yrs. Balochistan 49, Rural Sind 41, Urban Sind 19, KP 22, ex Fata/GB 16 & AJK 2. We truly believe in giving equal opportunities to all federating units.

“We have dealt with everything and everything else is also sorted. So, when things simmer down and this pandemic is handled, we will conduct the exam later this year in November or December God-willingly,” he added.

Why the need for Special CSS Exam was felt?

A question arises that why the need for the special CSS Exam was felt this year. Here, is the answer as CSS exam is the toughest exam of Pakistan. Every year thousands of the candidates appear but only a few per cent aspirants manage to pass the written exam. Then some are remained in the psychological and in the interview processes. At last, only a meagre number of lucky candidates get an allocation. Therefore, many vacant seats are remained uncovered. However, this year Imran khan decided to fulfil these vacancies by giving an another chance to the serious and competitive aspirants. This exam will be conducted in haste where incompetent aspirant cannot win the battle to prepare for CSS in such a short period of time. There is a need for ambitious officers especially from the backward areas of the country namely Balochistan, Sindh, KPK and FATA/GB. to participate in the establishment department and work for the welfare of the country.

NOTE(Warning):

It is no doubt that all analyses have been written with the utmost care. Being an individual it is not even possible to write each and everything about all the subjects of CSS perfectly right. My all attempts of CSS and PMS, various CSS groups of Facebook, our Facebook’s PAGE and CSSforum candidates’ experiences are taken here.

However, these deep analyses of CSS Subjects can also be helpful in opting PMS optional subjects. In a nutshell, these can help you while opting your optional easily in any competitive exams. Kindly must go through past papers and syllabus before opting any optionals.

I, therefore, not responsible in case of any misinformation and misleading here. kindly do analyze the subjects you’re going to opt on your own risk.

I wish you GoOd LuCk!
