Tomorrow is the last date for the submission of the Detailed Application Form (DAF) for UPSC civil services mains exam 2017. At 6:00 PM, August 31st 2017, the UPSC official website will close receiving the DAF online.
The DAF should be filled correctly and submitted online along with the mains exam fees before the closing hours tomorrow. The DAF should be submitted online only. The scanned copies of the required documents should also be uploaded along with it. The exam fees can be submitted online or offline. Candidates can pay online until the closing hours on 31st August. But the ‘pay-by-cash’ mode will be deactivated on 30th August itself. If you are paying by cash offline, you should generate the ‘Pay-in-slip’ before 30th August itself. The fees can be paid the next working day at a branch of the SBI. If you are generating the ‘Pay-in-slip’ today, you must pay the cash before bank closing hours tomorrow, i.e., on 31st August. Since ‘pay-by-cash’ mode will get deactivated today, make sure you generate the ‘Pay-in-slip’ right away so that you can deposit the cash tomorrow. If by any chance, you are not able to pay the cash at the bank tomorrow, you will have to pay online via credit/debit card or internet banking facility only.
The UPSC mains exam fees is Rs.200/- (Check here for IAS exam fees exemption)
