    Dear Aspirant!
    Unless not having OBC certificate you are not eligible to apply under OBC category.
    You have to apply under General category , under General category you will not extra benefits of OBC category like Age relaxations,increasing number of attempts.

    Better to apply for OBC certificate by issuing authorities , and apply for Civil services.
    You have to be submit your OBC certificate after qualifying or short listed in Preliminary examinations.
    You are a lot of time to submit your OBC certificate .

    No need to submit OBC certificate while applying Preliminary examination.

    Good Luck

    Hello

    It is not necessary to have a OBC certificate to apply for the civil services.In order to apply for the civil services you need to have the graduation degree.
    Age limit is 21 to 30 years for the general category.

    If your question is that despite the fact that you belong to the OBC category,you do not have the certificate to prove then in that case you come under the general category.

    So there are certain relaxation that is provided to the OBC category candidates ,you would not be able to enjoy them as such you do not have the certificate.

    As the OBC candidates have upper age relaxation of 3 years and also the number of attempts that they can give is 7 for the OBC candidates.

    For more details visit the website of the UPSC.

    For general age limit is 21-30 yrs and for obc it is 21-33 yrs.

    For no. of attempts,,for general 4 and for obc no. of attempts are 7.

    Yes, You can apply for civil services exams without OBC certificate but you have to apply in the general category. Without OBC Certificate you can not apply in OBC Category and you will not get the benefit of that category which you will get otherwise like increased number of attempts, age relaxation etc. So, it's better to get OBC Certificate by applying concerned authority for the same.

    The other thing is you are in final year of graduation. So, You can apply for the UPSC as they permits the final year student of the graduation course to apply for UPSC exam

    Re: Can I apply for Civils exam without having OBC certificate?

    Dear it is not good for you because you are in the academic session and pursuing engineering so that it is your responsibility that you should first get your caste certificate from the state or central government authorities which provides the certificate then you should proceed further for any examination because this thing is the most compulsory in your life and in your career because without having it you can not get job anywhere in any government department so that first you should complete this work then think about anything others

    If you have submitted your caste certificate to your engineering institute or have lost then you should get it back and if you are sure that you can get your certificate from the Tehsiel of your district under which your region comes then you can apply for preliminary examination of UPSC and you should fill OBC category in the application form and you should make it sure that you are in OBC or not otherwise it may create problem in future

    All the best

    Hello friend,

    Definitely you can appear in the civil services examination without having an obc certificate , but not as an obc candidate, because if you want to appear in the examination as an obc category aspirant than you must have a cast certificate.

    but if you have no any certificate at the time of applying the form than don't worry you can apply for it because at the prelims examination there is no need of it ,but you should present it before the interviewer in the final round which is personal interview.


    other wise you have to fill the form as a general category student.


    see the details about the examination.


    eligibility required for the examination:-


    1. eligibility requirements:-


    * you must be an Indian.

    * you must be a graduate from a govt recognized university.


    2. age requirements:-


    *for general category candidates:- 21-30 years.

    * for obc category candidates :- 3 year relaxation.

    * for sc/st category candidate :- 5 year age relaxation.

    * for central govt. employee:- 5 years age relaxation according to their category.

    * for physically handicapped candidates:- 10 years age relaxation according to their category.


    3. selection procedure:-


    * Preliminary round .

    * Mains round.

    * interview.
