UPSC: Civil Service Preliminary Examination: 2014 - Correspondence With The Commission

Union Public Service Commission

Correspondence with the Commission:

The Commission will not enter into any correspondence with the candidates about their candidature except in the following cases:

(i) 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 on the UPSC website [] for downloading by candidates. No Admission Certificate will be sent by post. If a candidate does not receive his 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 Commission’s Office either in person or over phone Nos. 011-23381125/011- 23385271/011-23098543. In case no communication is received in the Commission's Office from the candidate regarding non-receipt of his/her Admission Certificate atleast 3 weeks before the examination, he/she himself/ herself will be solely responsible for non-receipt of his/her Admission Certificate.

No candidate will ordinarily be allowed to take the examination unless he/she holds a certificate of admission for the examination. On downloading of e- Admission Certificate, check it carefully and bring discrepancies/errors, if any, to the notice of UPSC immediately. The candidates should note that their admission to the examination will be purely provisional based on the information given by them in the Application
Form. This will be subject to verification of all the eligibility conditions by the UPSC. The mere fact that a certificate of admission 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 Preliminary 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 Civil Services (Main) Examination. Unless candidature is formally confirmed by the Commission, it continues to be provisional. 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 Admission Certificate in some cases, may be abbreviated due to technical reasons. (ii) In the event of a candidate downloading more than one Admission Certificate from the Commission's website, he/she should use only one of these Admission Certificates for appearing in the examination and report about the other(s) to the Commission's Office.

(iii) Candidates are informed that as the Preliminary Examination is only a screening test, no marks sheets will be supplied to successful or unsuccessful candidates and no correspondence will be entertained by the Commission, in this regard.

(iv) If a candidate receives an e-Admission Certificate in respect of some other candidate the same should be immediately returned to the Commission with a request to issue the correct e- Admission Certificate. Candidates may note that they will not be allowed to take the examination on the strength of an Admission Certificate issued in respect of another candidate.

(v) Candidates must ensure that their email IDs given in their online applications are valid and active.

Important : All communications to the Commission should invariably contain the following particulars.

1. Name and year of the examination.
2. Registration ID (RID)
3. Roll Number (if received)
4. Name of candidate (in full and in block letters)
5. Complete postal address as given in the application.

N.B. I. Communication not containing the above particulars may not be attended to.

N.B. II. Candidates should also note down their RID number for future reference. They may be required to indicate the same in connection with their candidature for the Civil Services (Main) Examination.
