Hi

Please read the following details :

The eligible candidates shall be issued an e-Admission Certificate three weeks before the commencement of the examination. The e-Admission Certificate will be made available in the UPSC website [www.upsc.gov.in] for downlading by candidates. No Admission Certificate will be sent by post.

If a candidate does not receive his / her e-Admission Certificate or any other communication regarding his / her candidature for the examination three weeks before the commencement of the examination, he / she should at once contact the Commission. Information in this regard can also be obtained from the Facilitation Counter located in the Commissions office either in person or over phone Nos. 011-23385271 / 011-23381125 / 011-23098543. In case no communication is received in the Commission\’s Office from the candidate regarding non-receipt of his / her e-Admission Certificate at least three weeks before the examination, he / she himself/herself will be solely responsible for non-receipt of his / her e-Admission Certificate. No candidate will ordinarily be allowed to take the examination unless he / she holds an e-Admission Certificate for the examination.

On the receipt of e-Admission Certificate, candidates should check it carefully and bring discrepencies / errors if any, to the notice of UPSC immediately. The mere fact that an e-Admission Certificate to the Examination has been issued to a candidate, will not imply that his / her candidature has been finally cleared by the Commission or that entries made by the candidate in his / her application for the examination have been accepted by the Commission as true and correct. Candidates may note that the Commission takes up the verification of eligibility conditions of a candidate, with reference to original documents, only after the candidate has qualified for interview for Personality Test on the results of the Written Examination.

The decision of the Commission as to the eligibility or otherwise of a candidate for admission to the Examination shall be final. Candidates should note that the name in the e-Admission Certificate in some cases, may be abbreviated due to technical reasons.
