RTI for Photocopy of Mains Answersheet

In a recent ruling CIC (in June 2014) had ordered UPSC to give the photocopy of the mains answersheet to a candidate. So you can demand yours as well. Only then you can know where and why did good / bad marks.

Possible to file RTI online: https://rtionline.gov.in or via post

Drafting is pretty simply, copy paste following text

Your name
Address
Email:

To,
CPIO,
Union Public Service Commission
Dholpur House, Shahjahan Road
New Delhi-110069

Sub: Application under Right to information Act. Seeking my evaluated papers of Civil Service Mains 2013 Exam.

Respected Sir,
My name:
My roll number:

Kindly provide me the copies of my answersheets from Civil Service (Mains) examination 2013 for following papers:

  1. General Studies paper 1 to 4
  2. Optional subject paper I and paper II
  3. English language paper
  4. Indian language paper
  5. Essay

As per the order of Hon’ble Chief Information Commissioner Shri Rajiv Mathur in CIC/SM/A/2013/001282/RM, dated June 3, 2014, he has held that every candidate has right to inspect / obtain a photocopy of his evaluated answer sheet in the civil service exam. Therefore, the said information cannot be denied / withheld under Section 8 of RTI.

RTI application charges

  • With this application, I’ve added the requisite Rs.10 application fees via Netbanking / DD / Indian postal order drawn in favor of “Accounts officer,UPSC
  • I seek the information in paper format / electronic (CD) format
  • Let me know additional charges for getting the requisite information.

Thanking you in anticipation

Sincerely

DONOT FORGET TO SIGN AND DATE

Mrunal notes:

  1. Legally, you can demand the information in CD/DVD format by giving Rs.50, but UPSC babus never give CD/DVD and don’t even return 50 rupees. So don’t send additional money in advance right now. At this stage only Rs. 10 as fees for filing the RTI application.
  2. After recieving your application, he’ll write back to you asking for additional money for the photocopy/CD charges. Only then you send money.
  3. if you’re filing online and donot get conformation even after successful payment via netbanking, THEN DONOT Worry. you’ll get notified in 1-2 days that your application has been accepted. (happened with me in past, so don’t apply again in that case, one application sufficient.)
  4. if you’re filling online, you may also attach a PDF copy of your hallticket (as proof that it’s you and not some third party.)
  5. Legally information within 30 days. But UPSC babus deliberately reply the letter on the very last day before deadline. So assume 35 days.
  6. other than that, request all mains players to put their optional subject marks.

  7. 221 in prelims cut off 222.. This tym decided not to give attempt.

  8. Pub adm
    Paper 1 — 121
    Paper 2– 96

    1. hi swathi,
      your pub ad score is high….pls cud u share ur strategy and materials used for pub ad.?

      1. Hello aswin,
        I Wud suggest any basic material to clear your concepts… Hwvr what upsc demands is innovation…
        I enriched my answers with ijpa journals
        I maintained a scrap book on case studies of pub adm from THE HINDU… For instance – Transparency Melas in Rajasthan.
        Also do give pictorial representation to your answers by means of diagrams.. It has a nice impact on evaluator..

    2. Hi swati,
      Congrats for outstanding score in pub ad. Last year was my first attempt and i scored poor in pub ad paper2. Kindly suggest the books and content for paper2.

      1. Hello
        For paper two… Believe me, just clarify the basic concepts from, may be a general polity buk even. In the second phase try to amalgamate paper 1 and 2 together.
        For instance: while talking about directorate secretariat relationship and conflicts, do mention Mary follets idea of constructive criticism as well as harland Cleveland tension theory.
        Add more and more case studies from The Hindu.
        For instance: while talking on centre state relationship mention the recent proposal to remove governors from states by Modi govt ( it dominated today’s headlines)
        Always supplement your answers with nicely chalked out diagrams.. I had drawn 3 on an average for each answer.
        P.s public adm is nowhere to be found in textbooks, it’s happening all around us, just watch, analyse and reproduce on paper.
        This is a sure shot strategy.. With it iv achieved the distinction of 72 percent score in pb adm in himachal PCS twice…
        Best of luck.

        1. i got
          paper1- 91
          paper 2-69…m thinking of taking coaching..as optional play a very decisive role in clearing cut off….wats ur say

          1. I dnt deny coaching completely. Even I take pb adm classes of poor IAS aspirants, but what coaching does is clearing the basics, the building which fetch u sm of the good marks, u need to build urself…. In case u feel deficient on conceptual front, u can go for it.
            Gud luck.

  24. @mrunal

    sir, i would like to know the cut-off marks for IFoS prelims exam-2013.
    kindly help me in this regard.
    thank you

  25. Hi Mrunal…

    Looking at cut-off for prelims — which too high compared to earlier days (pre-csat)… And looking a mains cut-offs — which too low compared to earlier days….

    Earlier toppers used to be @ 1200 + score… But now its way down … Lesser than 1000….

    What does this indicate ??
    — upsc has choosen for strict marking scheme ya phir…
    — the quality of candidates who can write better answer answers for higher mains marks has gone down ?? Ya phir
    — the better mains answer writers … Core graduates of art n commerce n science are not able to make it mains…. Cause of high cut-off cause of CAT cadre entering UPSC..

    There lies some indications in marks…. I feel its very important to understand that … The preparations has be channelised towards it….

    Come up with your insights buddy….

    Note:: i do not mean disrespect to anyone…. Its just than i am trying to decipher what’s being coded with lower mains marks… And higher prelims cut off…
    No offence Meant…

    1. there is a rumour that if we file any rti in upsc they might tend to either debar us or may give discriminated treatment to us. Although I know that this is illogical but this is what I have heard.

      So I would request the post holders/ rankers to file an rti with the upsc and share your answer sheets with all of us. this would enable us to know where exactly have we mistaken and also the marking pattern of upsc.

      awaiting positive reply
      spread the word.
