    I was trying to apply for the IES exam and i had completed the part-1 process of registration. As the Part-2 registration process requires the remittance of prescribed fees at sbi, i have been trying to download the ‘chelan’ form payable at SBI branches.

    But unfortunately, the site “” , has been down today while all the time i tried, from morning . The address leading to the Application Form is not working. Hence the application form or bank pay-slip or chelan is not available today. I believe it is due to some technical problems the site is facing.

    But as you may know, today is the last date for submission of application. But since the site has been down today there must be many including myself who hasn’t been able to register. So i kindly request you to extend the dates for submitting the application form online to atleast 1 day. I hope you will see into this matter most immediately.

    will it be counted as an attempt if we apply for IES exam and do not write it?

      No. It will not be taken in to account as an attempt if just apply for concerned exam. The candidates can appear atleast paper, then it will be counted as an attempt.

      A candidate who has appeared at an examination the passing of which would render him educationally qualified for this examination, but has not been informed of the result, may apply for admission to the examination. A candidate who intends to appear at such a qualifying examination may also apply. Such candidates will be admitted to the examination, if otherwise eligible, but their admission would be deemed to be provisional and subject to cancellation, if they do not produce proof of having passed the requisite qualifying examination alongwith the detailed applications which will be required to be submitted by the candidates who qualify on the result of written part of the examination.

      Please check that you have selected the right examination before filling up the UPSC application, in case more than one exam is notified during that period. Although it may not happen as the required columns along with the drop-down menu for selection and inputting the information is available on the online form for a particular examination. In case, the applicant desires to opt for a criteria / parameter which is different from the one contained in the drop-down menu, would lead to the inference with the system that the candidate is not eligible for this examination on account of different parameter.
