Maharashtra Public Service Commission (MPSC) has released a notice announcing that the last date of paying the application fee has been extended to November 18, 2021, till 11.59 pm. The candidates who have applied for the MPSC Rajyaseva exam and were facing difficulty in paying the application fee can now pay the application via an online payment gateway.
The commission has provided this extension after a lot of candidates reported that they were facing problems that logged them out of the portal abruptly. Another problem faced by candidates was in paying the application fees. Some candidates expressed disappointment as the amount was deducted from their bank accounts but the payment status displayed failure. This is the only reason most of the application forms of MPSC Rajyaseva are showing an incomplete status. However, with this decision, the commission has given relief to a lot of candidates who were unable to process their applications.
Now, the commission has also directed the candidates that while making the payment, they must make sure that they do not press refresh or close the payment page unless a popup message displays alerting that the payment was successfully made. Once this is over, they have to save a receipt of the payment on their device.
Along with this, they are also asked to log in on the official website and check the status of the application form. If the status shows payment successful, they can proceed to the next steps. However, if the page displays a message status failed or incomplete, then they can report the matter to the higher authorities for resolution.
The preliminary exam for MPSC Rajyaseva is going to be held on January 02, 2022. At the same time. the MPSC mains examination is scheduled from May 7th to 9th, 2022. Earlier, the commission has notified 290 vacancies against multiple vacancies for different services. The admit card of MPSC Rajyasewa is expected to be released at least 15 days before the examination.
The MPSC Rajyasewa preliminary examination is going to be an offline test having two papers, i.e. General Studies and CSAT. For each paper, the candidates will get 200 marks and a duration of 2 hours is assigned to complete each section. MPSC Paper 1 (General Studies) is going to have 100 questions whereas paper 2 (CSAT) will have 80 questions in the exam.
