  • Same Problem of Age relaxation coming as yes in DAF while not claimed in Prelims too..
    Looks like some problem with the software

  • We need to get all photocopies attested ?


    dude your signature says u wrote mains in 2012 and I am pretty confused y are u getting this 1st timer doubt ?!?! :>
    anyway, self attestation is enough no need to do it from a gazetted officer..

    and guys one more thing no matter any mistake u do while sending your DAF (for Example you forget to send your age proof certificate), upsc is so benevolent that they will
    not reject, i repeat NOT REJECT your application under any circumstances. They consider all those who has cleared prelims to be good enough to make it to final list so they make sure that u compete in mains no matter what.


    I got my certificates attested last time. I need to send my IFoS DAF form by this week. I'm sure, this is not a 1st timer doubt since many of my friends who gave mains more than two times are getting attestation (That confused me).
    okay.. last time I did not attest my certificates from any gazetted officer but in the hope that I will be one myself shortly, I self attested it and even this time I am doing the same! :D

  • Age relaxation does not show in the module page.But shows up in the DAF preview.
    Like our name,DOB etc it is being taken from Prelims application.But it is showing incorrect in my case.

    You might have checked that box during final submission. (4 boxes. Last one is age relaxation).

    To be attested by gazetted officer. It there is mentioned that self-attestation is also needed, sign it yrself too.
    But m sure about gazetted officer.

    Hey,
    Let's get clarity can any senior help traversing the below:

    1) Which of the certificates are to be definitely signed by gazetted officer?

    2) Which certificates only need self-attestation and is sufficient

    3) I post my hard copy letter to UPSC office - Do they confirm on receiving my letter before 18th Sept (coz the DAF notification says the confirmation might come 2 weeks before exam)

    4) (This is for a friend who has partial vision and applying to PH category) If his certificate is issued by Govt authority but the format doesn't match the one suggested - like no such certificates have - which duties one can fulfill etc - what should that person do?

    Thanks,
    Dulali

  • U have to submit tomo ? lol...
    Even I dont know all the intricacies of the form and docs requirements. I dont want to misguide u. Thats why cant say about school certificate.
    What I know that we have to get every doc attested by gazetted offr or self-attested.
    Pick any doctor in Delhi and get attested. Doctor will see yr originals too.

  • - Finally, one need not waste time filling that irritating table on the first page when there are just 5 crucial minutes left to wrap up the final answer!!!
    +1 :)
    And no loose sheets (for other people) to tie! It gets so irritating when you are trying to finish the paper, both thinking and writing at the speed of light, and right then an invigilator would shout- tie your sheets now, fill that table now, we won't give you extra time for that - and ends up breaking your concentration. And you haven't even taken any extra sheets!

  • Ohh why you guys worrying about attestations .

    (*) You can self-attest [as per DAF] your qualification certificates.
    (*) You need to attest your OBC[NCL] copy from any gazetted officer , dont self-attest it .

    Sorry for late , was bit busy yesterday

    @ALL
    None of my SSC or HSC certificates/marksheets have birth date on them. Can I attach my Indian Passport's photocopies as birth date proof? Thanks
    No dont get passport, DAF had mentioned alternatives for candidates who dont have their age mentioned in their certificates . Could you able to go your school , where you last studied ? Consult its higher authorities[Head Master or Principal] , mention the cause for age-proof , they will provide you certification based on their register[when you joined].

    I think it means the certificate is to be issued "FROM" the mentioned officials.. Self attestation should do. However I think if someone who has experience in filling out the DAF can help.

    @vibin? :-)
    Get attest from any gazetted persons .. Dont worry much .
