    The external link of upsc official site in your article is okay. But providing an external link of Google Images for GTO pictures is not recommended. So also, the YouTube video which you provided does not add much value. So it is not necessary to use such external links in the articles.

    Hope now it is clear to you.

    It is not possible to understand the GTO test without pictures and video. So kindly allow me to keep those links,

    #578843: I also support Mr. N.K. Sharma in this regard. It is impossible to explain GTO Test without pictures. The ISC administration may kindly re-consider the decision on this aspect.

    N K Sharma - I have a suggestion - why not add a short snippet describing the kind of tasks that candidates would be put through during the GTO Test at the SSB, instead of the images and video links. Additionally, you can add a line mentioning that videos pertaining to the GTO tasks are also available online, and aspirants can check them out, for more clarity. This will help you maintain the posting guidelines.

    N K Sharma - Short snippet means a short description. I have not suggested that you upload 20 + pictures. What I have suggested is that you describe the tasks in simple language and let the reader do a Google search for more material.

    The webmaster has made a reference to research papers and high authority articles. As per my understanding, that would not include images and videos. I might be wrong in how I understand the guideline, but I would not post links to private images and videos.

    My name is Juana, I would rather that you address me by name than calling me, Madam. I am comfortable being called by name.
