UPSC Exam 2022: One Time Registration For All The UPSC Exams

UPSC launches the One Time Registration platform on their website to make the application submission process convenient for the candidates.

UPSC Launches One Time Registration Platform For Aspirants

In order to simplify the process of application submission, the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has created the ‘One Time Registration’ (OTR) platform. It is now available 24/7 on the Commission’s website. 

How will the One Time Registration benefit the applicants?

With OTR, Candidates won’t have to spend time filling in their personal details for each examination that is conducted by the UPSC. Also, since the candidates have to validate their basic personal details by themselves, the possibility of submitting incorrect information is eliminated. Here are some other benefits candidates will be able to enjoy with the OTR:

  • Enter personal details only once.
  • Upload the required documents only one time.
  • Personal details, as well as documents, can be updated and accessed 24/7.
  • OTR information can be accessed digitally anywhere and anytime.
  • When applying for any Commission’s exam, OTR information gets populated automatically.

So, when a candidate is filling out the online application form of an examination, about 70% of all the required information in the OTR will be prepopulated automatically. It will save them a ton of time while filling out the online application.
