    dude your signature says u wrote mains in 2012 and I am pretty confused y u are 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.
    If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of mine.

    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).

    nothing will happen.. there will be some computer and system error.. If u have clear proof that in your prelims form u have NOT claimed age relaxation and in this mains form its automatically selected to AGE RELAXATION CLAIMED: YES, then don't worry. at the time of your interview while document verification they will correct their error...

  • @all
    how come there is a need for OBC Enclosure when creamy layer certificate is being submitted.
    Don't ever let someone tell you that you cant do something
  • Same Problem of Age relaxation coming as yes in DAF while not claimed in Prelims too..
    Looks like some problem with the software

  • 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).

    A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy's shoulders to let him know that the world hadn't ended.

  • 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
