The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) on Thursday launched ‘One Time Registration’ (OTR) platform on its official website https://www.upsc.gov.in.
The facility has been launched with an objective to facilitate the process of submission of applications by the aspirants for various recruitment examinations.
In a statement, UPSC said that OTR will prove beneficial for the candidates in a number of ways. Apart from saving time, it will help the candidates to save them from filling in their basic personal details again for any subsequent Examination being conducted by the UPSC.
Similarly, the OTR will also eliminate any possibility of submission of incorrect information by the candidates as their basic personal details will be validated by the candidates themselves.
“Since about 70% information of an aspirant in the OTR will automatically be pre-populated in the online application form of an Examination, the time for filling/submitting an online application form will be reduced considerably,” UPSC said.
The aspirants, who wish to apply for any future Examination(s) of UPSC, are required to register themselves in the OTR platform by filling up their basic personal information indicated therein. Once the registration of an aspirant is completed, the information will remain stored securely in the UPSC servers.
An aspirant’s information will get automatically populated in the online application form of an Examination for which she/he applies.
It is advised to peruse the OTR instructions and fill in the information in the OTR with extreme care to avoid any complications in future, UPSC advised candidates.
