Are there any restrictions on the type of pen or writing instrument allowed in UPSC exams?

Yes, there are specific guidelines regarding the type of writing instrument allowed in UPSC exams. As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, UPSC typically permits the use of black ballpoint pens. Blue ink is usually not allowed. It’s crucial to follow the instructions provided in the UPSC exam hall ticket or notification, as these guidelines may change. We recommend checking the latest UPSC guidelines and staying updated through official sources or Tirumal Classes to ensure you are using the correct writing instrument for your exam.
