Lucknow/Allahabad: Urgent information needed

Dear all,
I need some crucial information from you guys, it will be instrumental in me filling up the cs form.
I wanted to know where does UPSC usually put its centres in Lucknow/Allahabad ? Had heard that it is usually a single centre in the UPPSC buildings in both the city.
Can any forum member here who had given their mains from these cities please help me with this information. It will be really helpful.

Thank you.

    There are number of decent places for accomodation in Hazratganj area. In case of Hazratganj, it is only 20-25 minutes away from the centre with well connected transportation system. You can also apply for CSIR Guest house accomodation which is only walking distance from UPPSC Aliganj centre.
  • That information is of immense help !!! Can't thank you enough infinity!
    Also oldboy thank you for your inputs.
    Wish you both all the very best for the exam process.

    Hey, sorry to bother you but I wanted to know why you not suggesting Allahabad as a centre? I just looked it up and saw several hotels near the UPPSC centre. (The one next to Chandra Shekhar Azad park)

    Two reasons :
    1. I have been to UPPSC Allahabad for exams and also for interview but I found that the atmosphere of UPPSC Lucknow is far better during the exam. There are number of places adjacent to UPPSC Lucknow where you can have refreshments during recess.
    2. Since I belong to lucknow, hence there is an inherent bias :p

    Obviously, you can chose Allahabad if you are more familiar to that place.
  • You say atmosphere...in what ways?

    Haha...I am actually not familiar to either of the two...but I found that the hotels are pretty close by and good in the case of Allahabad.

    In terms of ambience as the UPPSC examination centre in Lucknow is a newly constructed building, has broad open space and is surrounded by parks.

    Lol....Infact I never realised why I had an inclination towards Lucknow centre vis a vis Allahabad. It was only after your query that i was compelled to think in such terms.
  • Lol! That sounds like I am causing too much trouble for you. Apologies.
    Well Lucknow certainly sounds more serene. But as long as the benches are fine and comfortable I don't think I ll have any thing to complain about. Any expert comments on that aspect?
