Steps to Fill UPSC CMS 2022 Online Application Form

The detailed step to step process regarding how the aspirants can fill up the online application for CMS 2022 has been explained in detail. The candidates must make sure that they follow these CMS 2022 online application process steps to ensure that they successfully register themselves for the exam without any hiccups: 

Step 1: The aspirants have to, first of all, click on the link https://www.upsconline.nic.in for the official UPSC website where they will see a link “Online Application for Various Examinations of UPSC”. The link contains the online application forms for all the major entrance examinations conducted by UPSC. The applicants must make sure that they go through all the instructions carefully before filling the online application form for CMS 2020. There are two stages of the CMS 2020 application process and the applicants must complete both of them.

Step 2: This is Part I of the online application process where the applicants have to click on the “Part I Registration”. Once they click on the link, the applicants will be redirected to a new page which will contain the detailed instructions for filling up the online application form. Once read, the applicants have to scroll to the extreme bottom of this page and click on the “Yes” link. 

Step 3: In this step, the applicant will be required to enter all their personal information like name, date of birth, educational qualification, etc, and click on the “Continue” button after cross-checking all the information they have entered. 

Step 4: After entering all their personal details and choice filling (if applicable), the applicant will be taken to a new page that will display all the information entered by them. They will be given an option to make amends to the online application form in case they find out they have mistakenly entered some wrong information. After the final submission, the details entered by the applicants will be recorded and the same cannot be altered during any stage of the examination process.

Step 5: In this step, the system will generate a unique Registration ID along with the rest of the details provided by the applicants. This will mean that the applicants have successfully completed Part I of the online application or registration process. The work till now, however, is half done as they have to proceed to Part II of the online application process. The applicants must take a print out of Part I of the online application form for their own convenience.

Step 6: The candidates have to click on the Part-II registration link after the completion of part I for registration. The candidates will be taken to a new page where they will be required to input their Registration ID and Date of Birth to begin the Part-II registration process. Thereafter, the candidates have to deposit the online application fee via any of the available methods. 

Step 7:  One of the most important steps in Part II of the online application process is the payment of fees. The applicants will have three options regarding the payment of the application fee. 

  • By Cash: The candidates can pay the fee through the Pay-in-Slip generated during the online application process

  • Internet Banking: The candidates can pay the fee through the State Bank of India Internet Banking Facilities 

  • Online: The candidates can use the credit card/debit card of any bank for the payment of a fee  

Step 8:  After the payment of the fees, the candidates will be taken to a new page where they will be required to upload their signature specimen and recent photograph. The images uploaded by the candidates should be only in .jpeg format and the size for the same should be between 20 KB and 300 KB. 

Step 9: The candidates will land on a fresh page displaying the preview after uploading the signature specimen and recent photograph. The candidates need to check that the images uploaded by them are clearly visible or not in the preview page. Once satisfied with the quality of the images uploaded by them, the candidates have to click on the “Confirm” button. It is to be noted that the system will not record the entries made by the candidates unless they confirm their submission. 

Step 10: Once done with the uploading of the images, the candidates will see a confirmation regarding the completion of the online application forms. The candidates will also see a link through which they can view their complete application. The candidates will also see a “Print Application” tab which they need to click for taking out a copy of the same for future reference. 


The application of the candidates will stand a chance of getting rejected on the following grounds:

  • Unaccepted quality of the uploaded photograph
  • Unaccepted quality of the uploaded signature specimen
  • Uploading signature specimen in place of photograph and vice versa
  • Only Part I of the online application process is completed
  • Non-submission of application fee against the higher Registration ID (in case of multiple registrations)
  • Failure to provide sufficient proof to the Commission
  • Fictitious payments 
  1. After completing Part I of the Online registration process, the candidates have to take a printout of the same 
  2. Candidates who wish to submit the application fee in cash, they must take a printout of the Pay-In-Slip available with the online application form to be submitted at any branch of State Bank of India
  3. Candidates who are exempted from paying the online application fee may straight away proceed to the second part of the registration process
  4. The scanned signature of the candidates must be on a white blank paper with Black Ink
  5. It is not mandatory for online applicants to send the online application hard copy or any other documents to the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC)
  6. The candidates cannot be assured of their candidature being cleared by the Commission even if their admission certificate has been issued
