Last date to fill online DAF =extended to 17th September (Tuesday of Next Week)
Last date to send DAF+documents to UPSC= extended to 25th September.
Long story: Result of Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination, 2013 has been declared by the Union Public Service Commission on 2.8.2013. As many as 14959 candidates have been declared qualified for admission to the Civil Services (Main) Examination, 2013. As per original deadline, all those who cleared CSAT 2013 (prelims) had to submit their Detailed Application Form (DAF) for Civil Services (Main) Examination, 2013, through online latest by 10.9.2013 and thereafter, they were also required to submit a hard copy thereof along with relevant documents by 18.9.2013.
But some candidates have represented that they could not register/submit their on-line applications, therefore, Commission have decided to allow submission of online application upto 17th September, 2013 (1159 PM). The candidates who could not submit their online DAF earlier may submit the same latest by 17th September, 2013 (1159 PM).
The printed copy of DAF, duly signed, along with all the relevant documents (including prescribed fee, wherever applicable), may also be sent immediately addressed to the Under Secretary, Civil Services (Main) Examination, Union Public Service Commission, Dholpur House, Shahjahan Road, New Delhi 110069 so as to reach the Commission’s office on or before 25th September, 2013 (5:00 PM).
Those Buffoons are not sending ack mails and just extending deadlines. idiots!
Have patience dear. In my experience, the deadline would be extended till Nov 15. And still there will be those who have not submitted/mailed. This exercise is required because, unlike previous years(till 2011), no paper-mails are being dispatched by UPSC to those candidates who have cleared prelims. So for those who simply forgot or those ineligible ppl who wrote prelims just for fun(some coaching centre instructors in Delhi do), UPSC will wait till 2 weeks before exam.
Really do they act like that? ehehehe.. This is wickedly funny for they want us to act “responsible” in those interviews!! Why cant they be impeccable themselves…
Cheers for that info. Wish you “success” in mains, luck is already there :P////
Tell me this – i cant recollect properly so am skeptical about it — I might have missed the bottom signature on even pages and have definitely not put date on self attestation of certificates. Will it matter?? Should I send another? Waste of 200 Rs… Precious 200 Rs……
For signature part, yes it might be an issue. But with regarding to attested copy date thing they will ask you to resend it after mains exam. Something similar happened with my friend
upscportal has this up:
That exam is next month.. Ours is way too long ahead, ironically the same time appears short if you try to plan your studies in that time-frame… heheheheh…
Yeah but I wanted to ask one thing — have you got the ack mail???
can it be that only those forms are getting reply which dont have errors on them?? explains it all!!!
Now should I send another?? “what say you”??
neena you are a male..yaar be brave to accept your gender…you are not a smart person becoz ..girls are exempted from paying fees…and you paid 200 Rs…
BE A MAN..AND WRITE YOUR REAL NAME OR A FAKE MALE NAME….LADKI KYUN BANTE HO JAB HO NAHI TOH..
Spot on dear Friend, albeit with an error. hehehe Get your intel right first!!
The fee exemption is valid only for pre — didnt even had the pay tab. Simply submit. Fee exemption is not for Mains :P .. dumbo
WoW!!! Thnxxx whoever you are… Now I know why my form got rejected… I pasted those stupid stamps… hmmm… everyone around me was buying and was following them without deliberation…
Nice catch… It would have got rejected again. Neat… cool.. kudos and thanks…
PS — nonu is a very stupid name… No offence intended.
Please let me know if any one of you have received acknowledgement mail of the DAF
Has anyone received the acknowledgment mail from UPSC yet w.r.t DAF???
Filling DAF for first time so not sure if we receive ack mails ?
No acknowledgement for IFS-mains… although admit card has been uploaded.
so i guess..they ll do the same for cs-mains
If you have sent by speed post then people are getting acknowledge mails. If by couriers then they may send acks at once to everyone because commission feels it as received by hand
I have sent through speed post only around 10 days back.After how many days did you get the mail?
check at indiapost website regarding delivery of the speed post. u will atleast be sure that your letter has reached the UPSC.
hey hey — dont drop bombs like those!!!! I sent it using speed post alright. Even tracked its delivery – got delivered the next day itself(afternoon). I am from Noida..
But they havent sent any ack!!!
And if you did get it — did they mention about form being complete or not, moreover acceptance of candidature for mains? Or was it just plain simple ack – received form.
I have sent it via courier itself. But many people around me have received ack mails had they sent via speedpost.
recruitment stamp not available in post office.
The world has gone beyond moon but we will not start online payment in this country.
Please help…..what all enclosures i need to send with form…..i m general candidate seeking no relaxation of any sort….please help

can any bdy plz recommed me gud coaching inst. for upsce wth in delhi
@Neena u r a guy u r deliberately using words typical for a girl
UPSC is unlikely to send Acknowledgement mails in time; they might do it after the deadline is over. The point to be noted is that, the fact that you haven’t got any ack mail does NOT imply that UPSC has not received it or for that matter, that there are errors in it, to the extent that it is summarily rejected.
So, what one could do is, track the delivery of the DAF packet (India Post as well as most of leading private courier firms have that facility), and if it’s delivered, your task is over! You can sit back and focus on your prep. If at all some document is not in order, or sth is missing, UPSC will duly inform you about it. So, if you don’t get any such bit of info, by default, it is accepted. UPSC will NOT say “candidature is accepted” or “admission granted to Main” or sth like that! :P
But Krishna here is claiming receipt of mails!! Neways, you are right, better focus on studying that worrying… I’ll send another or ask someone to hand deliver it :) … Appreciate your replies////
See, even my DAF got delivered on 4th Sept. and moreover, I know of quiet a few ppl whose forms have also reached by first week of Sept. YET, none has got any ACK mail. So, chill! All the very best for your Mains! It seems to me (from your queries) that it’s your first attempt; make sure put your best foot forward, as I feel it GENERALLY get’s difficult by each passing year, somehow… Give your best shot and relax! :)
*make sure YOU put
It is prefectly fine if you have pasted CRF stamp despite there being no requirement of it. It WON’T affect your candidature in any way whatsoever. Be rest assured about it! The problem creeps in only when you’re mandated to deposit the fee by CRF stamp, viz. in case of General category and OBC male candidates, and you don’t do it. They can disqualify you for not paying the requisite fee, NOT for paying it when not required!
@Jai Thank you very much, it was really nice of you to comfort me.. But honestly now that the cost is barely Rs. 25 including print out and envelope, I can send 2 more :P…
@ek.. Sorry dont remember your name.. Its ZUGZWANG for me. But still I would go out swinging.. What you did here was totally “typical” male stuff. Calling out someone to establish your intelligence, moreover at a place it wasnt actually required – presuming people would find it cool. OMG, really how much vanity do you pack? In all that you missed some pointers – I remarked “Rs.200 Precious” – didnt occur to you if I was used to paying for forms, then 200 might not have been much assuming PSUs charge Rs500 heheheh.. On top of that Ms.Neha also missed to catch that one, hmmm.. either she is just me now or another “male”.. I call nonu a stupid name and probably you change your alias… wow.. brilliant Doctor(as in a PhD).. nice sherlock work here.. hheheheh… Seriously — but now you will come back and say — Hey this, or that or something… Thus I call ZUGZWANG for my time would be better invested in studying than fighting with you :P…..
i sent my daf thro’ speed post.. the date of delivery says not available.. in details it says bag opened in kanjhawla s.o.. would someone please tel me what that means? is it delivered or not? should i try sending it again..
got my acknowledgement today.. how many of you got it??
i,m shivam i fill form all process uppsc but not assept my admit card .why help me
My sister cleared prelims this year, she had done mistake while submitting a form, she has submitted the Preview Submission not the Final submission and also had sent the Preview Submission of DAF to UPSC, she hasn’t got any acknowledge mail, her friends got acknowledge mail from UPSC, Can you please let me know what can be done next or any suggestions?
You should get in touch with under-secretary in charge. If she submitted the application online then maybe there can be some possibilities, since there was no fee involved.
Anyways acknowledgement is of receipt of courier/mail and not of admittance to Mains. So you should be getting it anyway..
hello all.. i havent got acknowledgment for DSF submitted on 20th sept,by hand,personally.
