How to fill DAF

How to fill DAF

DAF has around 8 parts and has to be filled online first. Then a print out of the same is to be taken and mailed to UPSC through post/courier along with necessary documents.

For your convenience , I am attaching the photos of a DAF .

8 mistakes generally committed while filling DAF
  1. Don’t send the DAF print preview pdf  to UPSC by mistake. The DAF that should be send to UPSC must be the original one.
  2.  Should be printed on single/one sided page. (2014 instruction)
  3. Sign the DAF at all pages and at the space mentioned by UPSC.
  4. Affix a passport size photograph of yours, similar to the photograph displayed in DAF.
  5. Affix a central recruitment stamp worth Rs.200/- in the space mentioned. Get it cancelled using the post-office seal which should clearly mark the date and post office name.
  6. Attach all necessary certificates mentioned by UPSC along with the DAF. For general candidates the certificates needed include Class 10th mark-list to prove DOB and Degree-Certificate to prove your eligibility. The certificates attached should be attested – either by a gazetted officer or self attested with date.
  7. Superscribe on the top of envelope -“Application for Civil Service (Main) Exam *”.
  8. It’s always better to read UPSC Civil Service Exam Notification and Instructions before filling DAF.
