    Bro, there might be problem during document verification stage. For example, though some suggest validity is for 3 years, you can give even 10 year-old issue date during filling up the form, and still it wont be rejected during the form fillup stage. Problem arises later. Thats what I m worried about. Also, there is ambiguity regarding validity period as morning is clearly mentioned in govt notification regarding obc ncl validity. Kindly, dont take risk with upsc...

  • Ravindran sir told in DAF info class that it ll be valid for 3years. Don't worry at all even u don't possess valid certificate give whichever u have, after mains they ll send a notice if there are any discrepancies and give u time btw u should get UPSC's manual format certificate.
    Though u don't have upsc format now dong worry, get which ur state provides u can get it done in mean time. As far as date n all is concerned dont worry too much bcoz upsc is not worried abt it. Yes I m OBC ncl n given mains
