    Re: Any limitations in UPSC recruitment process of IFS and IES posts for candidates who are suffering with colour blindness disease?

    Dear there are some limitations made by the board to make attempt in examination that are :

    Only 4 attempts allowed for General Category Candidates

    Only 7 attempts allowed for OBC - Other Backward Classes Category Candidates

    No limit to attempting examination for SC - Scheduled Caste and ST - Scheduled Tribe Candidates

    A Physically Handicapped will get as many attempts are available to other non-physically handicapped candidates or his or her community, subject to the condition that a physically handicapped candidate belonging to the General Category shall be eligible for seven attempts.

    The relaxation will be available to the physically handicapped candidates who are eligible to avail reservation applicable to such candidates.

    You are suffering from Color Blindness so I would like to inform you that first of all you should make it sure that you comes under PH/PWD category or not and if yes then you will get relaxation of 10 years in upper age and will be allowed to appear for this examination till 40 years of age but if not then you can appear for this examination according to decided number of attempts as mentioned above

    Visually Impaired Category can be considered under PH category if complete following conditions :

    Blindness refers to condition where a person suffers from any of the following conditions namely :

    1. Total Absence of Sight
    2. Visual acuity not exceeding - 6/60 or 20/200 (snellen) in the better eye with correcting lenses
    3. Limitation of the field of vision subtending in angle of 20 degrees or worse

    Low vision means a person with impairment of visual functioning even after treatment or standard refractive connection but who uses or is potentially capable of using vision for the planning of execution of a task with appropriate assistive device

    If your color blindness make you eligible to come under PH Category then your number of attempts may be exceeded but only after getting proved

    I have attached official notification for other details please download

    All the best
