How to appeal against the rejection, if your application is rejected?
If you find your application in the list of rejected application which is hosted on the official website of UPSC, despite paying the requisite fee on time, you can appeal against the rejection. What you need to do is that you have to send your appeal with the documentary evidence supporting your claim.
The documentary evidence should be original and in hard copy and needs to be sent only by post or delivered by hand. The address on which you need to post your appeal is “The Under Secretary (CSP), Union Public Service Commission, Examination Hall Building, Hall No.2, 4th Floor, Dholpur House, Shahjahan Road, New Delhi-110069”. This has to be sent within 10 days of the release of the notice of rejection of the application.
What are the valid documentary evidence you can show?
As per the mode of payment you used to pay your registration fee for the UPSC Civil Services Exam 2020, you are required to show the document in support of your claim of having paid the fees.
If you had paid the application fee using the offline mode of cash payment in the State Bank of India, you can submit the system generated pay-in-slip of the payment. Make sure that you submit the original pay-in-slip and not a photocopy of the pay-in-slip.
On the other hand, if your application fee was submitted online, using debit or credit card of any bank or using the net banking facility of State Bank of India or any other authorised bank, you will be required to submit a copy of the statement of your debit or credit card or a copy of Bank Account Statement, as your case may be. Ensure that the copy of the statement that you are submitted is duly attested by authorities of your bank.
Also, it is advised that you submit a clear, easy to read copy so that the process of appealing against the rejection is not further made problematic for you.
