The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has launched a one time registration (OTR) facility for government job aspirants who will now not be required to fill in their basic details every time they apply for different recruitment examinations.

"With a view to facilitate the process of submission of applications by the aspirants of its Examinations, the Union Public Service Commission is glad to launch ‘One Time Registration’ (OTR) platform on the Commission’s website at and on 24X7 basis," the UPSC said in a statement.

The OTR will be quite useful for the candidates as it will not only save them from filling in their basic personal details again for any subsequent Examination being conducted by the UPSC, but also eliminate any possibility of submission of incorrect information by them as their basic personal details will be validated by the candidates themselves, the Commission said.

"Since about 70 per cent 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," it added.

The aspirants, who wish to apply for any future examination of the Union Public Service Commission (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 Commission’s servers," the UPSC said.

An aspirant’s information will get automatically populated in the online application form of an Examination for which she/he applies, it added.
