    • Hi Pihu,
      A domicile is not mandatory to apply for RAS Examination. But, if you belong to any state other than Rajasthan, you will not be able to get advantages of reservation. i.e. if you are an SC/ST or any reserved category candidate belonging to another state, you are not eligible for reservation benefits.

    • Hi Tushar,
      Exam centers will be under the jurisdiction of Rajasthan government. Hence, Exam centers cannot fall in states other than Rajasthan.
