The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) will be conducting the civil services prelims 2020 on October 4, 2020, at 2569 centres spread across 72 cities in the country.
The special train will depart from Vijayawada at 3 pm on Saturday and will reach Visakhapatnam at 10 pm on the same day. Likewise, on the next day, the special train will leave Visakhapatnam at 8:30 pm and arrive at Vijayawada at 4 am.
