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: or via post

Drafting is pretty simply, copy paste following text

Your name

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




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.

  11. Mrunal Sir,
    Any confirmation on whether UPSC is actually giving the Mains papers evaluated copies as per CIC Ruling as mentioned by you ?
    Some of my friends diverting me from filing RTI saying that DoPT will sort such applicants and might blacklist them in future over some pretext or other. Does this argument sounds valid..??
    I am confused..kindly help..

    2. thanks a tonne…

  15. Hi,
    I lost my rollno, but I have registration no. How can I get the roll no. now to check my marks in prelims? can anybody suggest??

    1. Already gave d answer check out

  16. update Jun-25-2014:
    UPSC babu changed the cutoff PDF file on their server. new file shows ST cutoff 201 (in the beginning it showed 200).

    1. @MRUNAL
      I am among the victim…hmmm my marks was 200.17 but cud nt clear pre, st category and written an application to the Secretary upsc informing about the same discrepancy… then upsc increased the cut off itself from 200 to 201

      1. lol….now tat was one heck of a correction…

  17. Is it possible that someone can share their answersheets online?i mean is it allowed?
    Just wanted to get an idea how answers are to be written??

  18. 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.

  19. how many hindi medium asspirants finally qualifed in 2013 civil service ?

  20. @mrunal
    i would like to know how many students from sanskrit optional got selected.
    what were the highest marks in sanskrit?
    kindly help me in this regard.

  21. Mrunal, what to file in an rti to upsc to know about my low score in interview ???

    1. Mohit that is unlikely to yield any result. CPIO will not divulge any information any information that is not on “record”. If the panel gave you low marks arbitrarily, they wouldn’t have put specific reasons on file record.

      1. Ok, I got just 124. I heard from someone that below 150 they need to specify reasons.

          1. that is big problem. one of my friend got just 65 marks in interview.

          2. Can you pls tell us.. how your interview go..

  22. is it possible to know the mains 7 paper marks after failing to qualify in compulsory Indian Language paper,by filing an RTI ?please let me know,
    my condition at present is like “dhobi ka kutta,na ghar ka na ghaat ka!(HINDI muhavra)..(though i was screwed in Hindi(76),Please help!

    1. pratik, sorry for your Hindi debacle, same here ….how did u get your mark for Hindi….? i need to know as my log in draws a blank…really confused….also about the mark of other papers….pl let me know…thanks
