The candidates were left bewildered on Monday when they opened the website of UPSC.
They were received by a picture of cartoon character ‘Doraemon’ accompanied with a tltle song in hindi.
Many shared the screenshot of the same on social media without understanding what was happening and only later most of them understood that the site was hacked.

This happened on the official website of UPSC. But when the issue went viral, the website said ‘The website is under maintenance’ for some time. And it was restored to normal without much delay.
