  5. while significantly increased vacancies for HAS is very exciting, letdown is even greater given total of only 13 general category vacancies. Prelims is gonna be a very very tough nut to crack this year as the cut off will break all previous records(if the same level of paper is asked this year).
    Ex service men must be flying sky high with 6 seats reserved for them!! So unfair to the general populace!
    I can see one more year going down the drain.
