    Is it possible to change category while applying for Mains examination?


    I have a doubt here. When filling the prelims application form i mentioned that i belong to OBC category as my father`s income was less than 450,000. But after few days if filling the form (after the last date of filling the form) i came to know that for govenrment employees (my father is a retired govt officer), only their position is considered for determining if you belong to OBC creamy/non creamy layer. My father was recuited as a class II officer and got promoted to Class I before he turned 40. So as per the rule i don`t belong to the non creamy layer. So i wanted to change my application form but UPSC doesnot allow it. My question is if i clear the prelims with marks greater then the general cutoff marks will i be able to change the details in the main application form?

    We are really very sorry friend that you can not make any type of change in your qualification, personal details or related to any other information at any condition during to apply for mains examination because this is 100% unfair activity and UPSC board really does not allow this type of mistakes made by any applicant and when you are worried about this then you must have cleared it before and i would like to suggest you that please do not do this if you are serious about your preparation because this thing may make your disqualified from the examination without any prior information and UPSC board has all rights reserved to cancel your candidature without informing you

    I would also like to give you an opinion that whenever you apply for any type of competitive examination, you must make every detail sure with proof because your small mistake may destroy your career that is why you need to be careful in future and ask from your family members about personal details before filling up online or offline application form for any type of recruitment and do not make this mistake in mains examination because if you will get selected in prelims then your all details will be considered same as you were mentioned in preliminary examination application form so that you should keep all details same and accurate forever

    All the best
