    1. Hi Ankita, since the Judicial Services Exams are held under the aegis of the State High Courts (even if they are conducted by other agencies), the official notification for recruitment, shortlisting and results will be published on the official website. For Telangana, the notifications are published on

      Currently we could not see any notification for 2018 exams. There are results and updates from the previous exams. The best option would be to call Sri. M. Rajamouli Sarma Registrar(Recruitment) Telangana HC at 23449602, 23688204, 9490153402 and check if there is any current recruitment open and clarify the details.
